Deciding when to travel to Walt Disney World is a big decision. It can affect many aspects of your trip including price and crowd levels. Traveling during the off season is a great way to make your vacation even more magical.
Because there are fewer guests visiting Walt Disney World during the off season, Disney will often lower the prices of staying at on-property resorts in an effort to fill more rooms. At certain times of the year, they have also been known to run specials such as free dining and resort discounts. While the price of the park tickets won’t decrease, you can still save quite a bit of money by traveling during the off season.
Reduced crowds is another great benefit of traveling during the off season. January and September are known to have low crowd levels at Walt Disney World. I visited Walt Disney World during the first week of September this year. The crowd levels were great! The longest stand by wait time I saw was only 20 minutes.
