Disney World is a fantastic resort that offers people of all ages a wonderful experience. The year-round attractions give visitors many amazing and unique experiences, regardless of the month they choose to visit Disney World. However, it could be argued that there are certain times of year that are better to visit and this may depend on several factors. These may include the price, the weather, how crowded the parks are, and what is going on at the resort at different times of the year. Here is an overview of the best and worse times to visit Disney World taking each of these factors into consideration.
One of the biggest factors that impacts on where and when people take a vacation or enjoy a day out is the cost. If this is a priority to you, then there are definitely times when it is more cost-effective to visit Disney World than others. Both the hotels and the theme parks are cheaper during slower times and more expensive during the peak seasons. Similarly, travel costs are often higher during peak seasons and lower at quieter times of the year. Therefore, the best months to visit are January, February, September, and November as they are the cheapest while June, July, August and December are the most expensive months. Furthermore, you are more likely to find deals and offers for the resort, local accommodation, and travel during the slower months while it is more difficult to find great deals during peak season.
Another consideration is the weather. While some people love the hot weather, others find it uncomfortable standing around in queues in the heat. If the latter applies to you, then avoid the summer months, especially between May and September. Instead, try to visit in either January, February, March, November or December. It is also worth taking into account that Florida has a hurricane season between June and October. Although it is unlikely that you will be affected by a hurricane during your stay, it is something to think about when planning a vacation.
How crowded Disney World is can also potentially affect your enjoyment of the experience. The more crowded the theme parks are, the longer you will spend waiting in queues to enjoy the attractions or to enjoy a meal at one of the resorts many restaurants. For this reason, you may prefer to visit during one of the less crowded periods. The four least crowded months to visit are January, February, September, and October. If the crowds don’t bother you, then you will enjoy visiting Disney World just as much in any of the other months.
No matter what time of year you visit, you will find there are plenty of things to see and do at all the theme parks and you certainly won’t have time to get bored. In fact, most people who visit find it difficult to cram everything in and need to return for a second visit. However, there are certain times of the year when there are extra attractions, events, and festivals taking place that add to the overall experience. Between November and December, there is a particularly jam-packed schedule of things taking place predominantly because of celebrations such as Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Therefore, this is a fantastic time to visit Disney World.
Overall, there are pros and cons to visiting Disney World for each month. Which month is best depends on whether your priority is the cost, the weather, avoiding crowds, or visiting at a special time. Therefore, what is considered the best time to visit may vary from one person to the next depending on their needs and preferences. However, if all of the factors are important considerations, then September is possibly the best choice as the weather is not too hot, the prices are lower, there are plenty of things happening and the crowds are reasonable. A further reason to consider visiting Disney World in this month is that there are often some fantastic deals available for people who want to travel to Disney World in September, including deals on travel, accommodation and attraction tickets. Regardless of the month you choose, you will have an unforgettable experience that is unmatched by any other vacation destination in the world.
