Choosing the best time to visit Disney World depends on balancing convenience and avoiding crowds.
If you can visit during off-peak times, the best times to visit are usually January and February, early May, and September through December (except holidays). Kids usually have school at this time, which means fewer crowds, but it may also be more difficult for families to swing.
If you’re looking at the weather, November through February is an ideal time to visit. The humidity and temperatures are lower, allowing you to explore the park comfortably.
Be sure to check if there are any special events you’d like to experience too, like the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival in the fall or the Flower & Garden Festival in the spring.
Experience The classics: A trip to Cinderella’s Castle; a ride on Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean and It’s a Small World; Getting Mickey’s autograph. These are iconic experiences for a reason, so take them in and enjoy.
Explore Epcot: Epcot’s World Showcase features pavilions representing various countries. Take the time to enjoy the culture and cuisine on display here, and be on the lookout for any special events.
Cool off at the water park: If the weather is hot, check out Disney’s water parks, including Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, as well as the various water parks at Reunion Resort.
Disney World offers a variety of food experiences. As you might expect, you can find iconic snacks all around the park, like Mickey-shaped ice cream bars. There’s also a variety of quick-service dining options, offering everything from burgers to pizza to international cuisine.
Disney World is also home to a variety of table service experiences. Dine with Cinderella in her castle, enjoy a Polynesian luau, try different cuisines from around the world at Epcot, or have a sit-down meal with your favourite character.
There are also a few more upscale dining experiences you can try, like the tasting menu at Victoria & Albert’s.
Your concierge can also arrange villa pre-stocking and private chef service on any Disney rental, as well as assist with advanced reservations for Disney dining experiences.
