Does anyone know how bad the crowds are for the Magic Kingdom the first week of August? We are usually at Disney around the week after the 4th of July, but are tired of vacationing that early in July. So next year we are moving it to the first week of August. Any difference in the crowds between those weeks?

Crowds might be a bit smaller than 4th of July, but its still summer vacation, so you should still expect huge crowds. Crowds don't start to slow down until the last week of August/First week of September.

Thanks Derek. Do you have an opinion on which is a better day, Monday or Thursday. Its been years since we've been, we usually do EPCOT. Again thanks for the help.
