How bad is Aug 10-16 going to be?

Crowd wise?

We have the EMM events for Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios booked. I’m hoping to get outta the parks by 1pm most days, but I still fear the crowds. We moved the trip from early September thanks to Galaxys Edge, and now of course I wish I’d kept those dates but the kiddos refuse to switch.


unsure of the release date for the dumbo anniversa
It shouldn't be too bad. Dave @ has that week as a moderate week (Crowd Level 6). This is what he says:

The “moderate crowd” weeks–those in black and rated 5-7–have crowd levels I would not particularly recommend to first time visitors, though the crowds can be managed. However, I’d go during such weeks myself with no hesitation, and think these levels are OK for returning visitors who don’t need to see everything and already know how to work Walt Disney World.
But on his week rankings, that week is ranked at 26 with a Crowd Ranking of 7 and crowds at moderate +. So, it will be busy, but nothing that a good plan won't fix. We'll be there for that week and are planning on doing the EMM at DHS. We went the same week 3 years ago and crowds were manageable.
