There are many theories on what is the best time of year to visit Walt Disney World, and there are websites and apps and charts and graphs and all kinds of information that can help you determine when the crowds will be the smallest. Even we have touched on it many times.
I know for me, crowds are only one factor in considering when to visit WDW, and here are some things to think about that will help you make the decision of “When Should I Go to Disney World?”
Consider Your Party – If you will be traveling with school age children to Walt Disney World, then timing becomes a huge factor, and you have to decide if it’s worth pulling them out of school to go when WDW Is less busy (like in the early fall or winter months), or do you brave the spring break crowds? Many parents believe it is well worth the lower cost and lesser crowds and do opt to pull children out of school for a WDW vacation, but there are many people who believe the opposite is true, so that’s really a personal choice you and your family have to make for yourselves. If you will be traveling with a large party, or are looking to save a little money, then the value seasons’ will be better for you cost wise, and the Disney Resorts are cheapest during the months of January-Mid February, and the end of August/Early September.
Florida Weather – Orlando weather is not the most predictable thing, and they see their fair share of rain and thunderstorms, especially during the summer months and hurricane season, which can be anytime from May through October. During these months you can expect humid, hot days with afternoon showers, so I recommend you bring along a poncho, and consider some rainy day activities so the rain won’t ruin your day!
So you’ve decided to go to Walt Disney World for your vacation – first off, let me congratulate you on making such a smart decision! So now that you know where you’re going, it’s time to plan – and if it’s your first trip, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the information that’s out there. So, here’s some tips on what you can expect for your WDW trip:
“Not Your Typical Vacation” – WDW is a fast paced, crowded world of Parks and Resorts, and for many its not exactly what you would call “relaxing”. That being said, there ARE ways you can relax and enjoy your surroundings – you can “Resort Hop” and check out the shops, take a stroll, and grab a drink at the bar of all the different WDW Resorts, or you can spend the morning at the Park and leave after lunch (when the Parks tend to get more crowded), for a nap and some pool time back at your Resort, or you can check out some of the lesser known WDW Restaurants and try some new and unique cuisine
The Weather – Florida weather can be….unpredictable at best. During the summer, its likely that it will rain most afternoons, so be prepared and bring a poncho along with you while touring the Parks. The heat and sun can be intense too, so I recommend lots of sunscreen and plenty of water to help you stay hydrated and happy! Basically, expect the unexpected and prepare for any/every scenario when it comes to Disney World weather
