Best Time of Year

Probably the first question everyone asks themselves once they’ve decided to vacation with “the Mouse” is when to go.  Each season brings with it different special events, different crowd patterns even different weather expectations.  I’ve taken the months of the year and listed the highlights and the not so great features for each.  Of course no matter when you go, it’s always better in Disney!!

January & February – Low crowds, break from intense northern winter, parks not open as late, weather can really change from cold to warm to cold within a short amount of time, crowd spike around President’s weekend.

March & April – Epcot International Flower & Garden Show, weather is beautiful and the burst of flowers spectacular, crowds are up with Spring Breakers, the week leading up to Easter Sunday and the week after have incredibly high crowd levels so planning and strategies are a must!

May & June -  Final weeks of Flower & Garden Show, Star Wars Weekend!, crowds are manageable except for Memorial Day weekend,  heat and humidity can start be high especially for northerners, beginning of rainy season.

July & August – No school for kids so easy planning!, parks in full swing, crowds are at a steady high, biggest spike in crowds for 4th of July week, daily thunderstorms and hurricane season.
September & October – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, crowds drop off from end of August, humidity wanes and weather is beautiful, might not be ready for all the Halloween trimmings in early September, daily thunderstorms and hurricane season.

November & December – Final weeks of Food & Wine Festival, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Epcot’s Holidays around the World and Candlelight Procession, holiday season with all the decorations which are up by Thanksgiving, lovely weather, low crowds until Thanksgiving week which spikes followed by low crowds in early December up until Christmas to New Year’s week which is the highest crowd level of the year.

Still not sure which week is right for you?  Just ask and I will be able to tell you which specific days are your best bet!  It’s one of the many free perks that comes along with booking through me!
