When Is The Best Time To Visit Disney World?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are like me, you love going to Disney World. It's a favorite destination for children, but many times, adults find it very difficult to stomach. Why?

The reason is simple. Disney World is hot, crowded and can be a flat out nightmare for adults. In the heat of the summer, it is very difficult to last out in the hot Florida sun. This also is the time when crowds are at their highest, and as an additional bonus, your lodging will be among the highest of the entire year!

Choosing a good time to go to Disney World is essential if you want to maximize the fun you will have on your vacation.

Weather

Does your family like it hot outside? Or perhaps, do you prefer it to be cool and crisp? If you like the heat, you can go anytime between April and September and you'll fit right in. But if you like it cool, you have a short window. November to February is your best bet.

Don't underestimate the heat of Florida. Although you may feel that you can handle the heat, the summertime is absolutely sweltering. Disney does stay open really late to help with this, and I highly recommending leaving during the heat of the day and coming back later at night. Long naps, early mornings and late nights are important touring tips in the heat of the summer

Crowds

Anytime school is out, crowds will be at their Disney peak. Although there are tricks you can use to avoid crowds and stay ahead of the game, if you can possibly choose a time when school isn't in session, that's your best bet. It's the best bit of "crowd control" advice I can give you. Monday thru Friday's when school is in session is a phenomenal time to be at Disney World.

Special Events

There are many events that happen at Disney World that you might want to consider. From holiday celebrations, to Star Wars weekends, to the Food & Wine Festival, Disney has something for everyone. Try and always look at a Disney calendar to choose the best time for your family. There also are many websites that have crowd calendars that let you know which parks to choose based on which day it is, Disney Magic Hours and other considerations.

All in all, going to Disney World is an expensive, but special time. Nothing can sour you on the entire thing like choosing a time that is full of people, and hot. Learning different tips and tricks can help you stay ahead of the game. Picking the best time to visit Disney World can help your family to have a great time. Learning these Disney World tips can help your family stay ahead of the game, and have a great time!

We went there in July (big mistake) about 10 years ago and you're right, it was a nightmare. Now, the kids are older I want to go back hopefully next year and I will surely take your advice and not go during the hot months. Great article.

I once went to Disney World Paris a week before the vacation started, my family thinking it would be quieter, but it turns out France had already started its vacation;...oops!

Sounds like fall might be the best time for me. Once under the Texas summer sun, I burned in fifteen minutes flat.

We went to Disney World during a school month (April), and as your article suggests, the crowds were tolerable. Even the temps were decent. This is good information for anyone planning a trip to see Mickey and friends.
