Best month to visit Disney World
I was just curious to what my fellow TPI readers thought was the best month of the year to visit Disney World.
May - around Mother's day week, Or October...
I'm fond of late February. Little chance of a winter chill, but before the spring break crowds and the summer heat/humidity start.
We love to visit in October. That month really gives guests the best bang for their buck with moderate to low crowds despite having one school holiday weekend (Columbus Day --along with the imfamous "Jersey Week"). There are also all of the Halloween events and decorations in the park, and the incredible EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. November (pre-Thanksgiving) is also a good month with lower crowds despite having a school holiday weekend (Veterans Day) with the advantage of seeing the parks transition from Halloween to Christmas decorations. Weather also tends to be very good temperature-wise (70's) in October/November with a slight chance of severe weather at the tail end of hurricane season.
November but before thanksgiving week! I'm not quite sure about Disney, but when I went to Universal then there were no lines! The longest I waited was about 20 minutes and that was because the Hulk broke down.
October is fantastic! Food & Wine Festival, Halloween and usually great weather. The first week of December is great too. All of the holiday decorations are up but smaller crowds.
for the past 6 years or so, I have alternated between the last week of February, the middle of last week of April into middle of 1st week of May and 1st week of November.
Based on what you all had to say, it sounds like October is the best month to go! Thanks everyone for the replies!
I will second October! The parks are not too crowded, there are usually nice events going on, and there is pretty nice weather!
Have a great time, and don't forget to rate and review attractions and maybe even file a trip report when you get back!
Has anyone been during September? I was looking on Touring Plans and September looks like a great time to go also. All the Halloween festivities are under way in September and I believe there is a free Dining Plan?
March because its really calm and its a good climate most of the days
I now always go right after Labor Day. In my experience much less busy than October but the weather is still hot. Although, I do like going the week after Thanksgiving. Low crowds and Christmas decorations...
Late September - Early October are the least crowded.
