Best Days of the Week for US and IOA?

We are going down to WDW the end of Aug and planning on spending a few days at US/IOA. I have plenty of info on which are the best days of the week for WDW parks (thanks to touringplans.com and the UG), but I can't find any information on the best days of the week for US/IOA. Some say weekends are best, but I wonder if that will change with FL residents trying out WWHP once it opens.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Donna

I would say a weekday would be less crowded.
monday or tuesday.

and if your going at the end of august most kids are back in school so I am thinking it wont be too bad.

Glad you asked. We are going Labor Day weekend and the week after. I was wondering the same thing.

Weekdays were always quieter for us.

With WOHP opening over Memorial Weekend, I'm thinking IOA will be hopping constantly for a long time to come.

Wink Thanks

Thanks for all the answers everyone. We've definitely decided to do earlier on weekdays.

Yes, I do believe that IOA will be very crowded. We've decided to split that into two days and one at US (besides our days at WDW). Hopefully, if we get to IOA each day before opening, we won't have too much trouble seeing everything at WWHP. The good part may be that the rest of the park should have lighter crowds, at least I can hope.

The early part of the week.... Monday - Wednesday.... Weekends will be crowded with locals flocking to WWOHP and Thursday/Friday are good bets for Disney guests to invade US/IoA after they've made sure to get all of their Disney fix in.

Yes, I will post on WWHP once we get back. I hope that others will post before that though. Can't wait to see it.

It is going to be crazy any day of the week as soon as Harry Potter World opens.
