As a Disney Vacation Planner, I promise you that I provide personal touch service for each and every guest.

I make it my job to continuously watch for promotions and discounts to apply to your reservation.

WEEKLY Q&A with YOUR Magical Adventure Planner, Mary Pat Rhodes

When is the best time to visit Disney World?

In my opinion there are no bad times to visit Disney World.  With that said; I will offer you some optimal times to experience the magic.

My favorite time is the 3 weeks after Thanksgiving. The parks and resorts are beautifully decorated in holiday fashion. Disney World’s resort rates drop to value season.  The crowds are low too.  

My second favorite time is the 3 weeks after New Years.  Again the rates drop and the crowds are low.  Everyone is going back to work or school after the holiday break.

Crowds are also low in the months of May and September. The month of May; because the spring breakers have left and the summer people are not here yet. September because the US kids are just getting back to school

If planning a visit with children it will depend on the age of the children, and when you are available to travel. If you have children in school you will have narrower options.  I always try to tell my clients to avoid the hot crowded summer months.  

The best rule of thumb is to look at the blockout dates on the Florida residents seasonal passes. For example, the blockout dates for Seasonal pass holders 2013 are: March 23 – April 5, 2013; June 8 – August 15, 2013, December 19 – December 31, 2013. If Disney doesn’t want them there, then they are expecting major crowds!
