The 4 Best and 4 Worst Times to Travel to Disney


The Best of Times…

4. Halloween Heaven: October

The sticky August/September temperatures have gone down, but it’s still delightfully warm (highs in the low 80’s). Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party dates are available, and the crowd levels and prices are still reasonably low. Add the Epcot Food & Wine Festival to the mix and I think that puts October into my #1 coveted travel time slot. Of course, I can’t “officially” condone taking children out of school because I am a school employee myself (but this looks like a really, really great time to visit- wink, wink).

If you can travel during any of these 4 times you’ll be mostly pleased with the lower crowd levels. Prices will vary though, so if you are on a strict budget, you should hone in on January or late August through mid-November. If you can travel during one of these times, great! By all means, take advantage of the promotions and the lower crowd levels. However, many people can’t travel during these times. If you have to travel during one of the “worst” times, hang in there with me until the end of this article. I promise you that even the “worst” travel times can be totally magical.
