When to Go?

So, when is the best time to go to Disney World?  There's a pretty simple answer to that question.  When the kids are in school.  :)

Typically, September and October are great months to go to WDW because temperatures are cooler and crowds are lower.  And as if that was not good enough, they also typically offer FREE DINING during these months!  But you must also take into consideration, that this is the peak of hurricane season, so the weather could be tricky.

January and February also tend to be cooler, lower crowd months, but avoid MLK weekend, and President's Day weekend if at all possible. 

So, what if you're like me, and you can't go when the kids are in school?  Well, don't fret, my pet, because there are lots of other great times to visit Disney World!  Where I live, school typically gets out at the end of May, and we have always been able to squeeze in a trip right at the end of the late-Spring special offers.  This is a great time to get a good deal.  Also, many schools in the southeast start back in mid-August, so late August can be a good time.  The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are also a bit less crowded.

What times of year should you avoid?  Holidays and school breaks are the busiest times at WDW.  Crowds are higher, and so are the prices.  Avoid mid-summer, Spring Break, and Christmas-New Year's if at all possible. 

Until next time...
