10 BIG Decisions You Must Make When Planning Your Walt Disney World Trip

1. When to Go

While there’s never a bad time to visit Disney, some seasons are certainly better than others in terms of crowds. January through most of February is usually a low-capacity time of year, with the minor exception of certain RunDisney race weekends. March and April are when most schools have their spring breaks. So even though the weather is delightful, the crowds may be on the crazier side, especially close to Easter. May is Disney World heaven - not too hot, and you’re still beating the summer rush. June through mid August is summer break for school kids, when it’s the most convenient for families to travel. The parks get so full during this time that sometimes Disney even goes into various phases of closing its gates. September and October are back to Disney bliss, with the added fun of the Halloween Party. November and December tend to be up and down though—holiday breaks obviously bring in high volumes of travelers, but the weather is divine.
