The Best of Times
The Best of Times
Most Disney veterans can tell you, in no uncertain terms, that some times are much better than others to visit the “World.” We wholeheartedly agree, but there’s more to it. While there are certainly times of the year that are less crowded or more temperate, only you can decide the best time to visit. To help you decide, we charted the fluctuating factors for each month below. If you ask us, the best time to visit is November–February, but avoid the holidays, when parks fill to capacity. Three-day weekends are also to be avoided whenever possible. The latter half of August and September are less crowded, though you’ll battle the heat. For links to more temperature and rainfall data, visit http://www.passporter.com/wdw/bestoftimes.htm.
Disney resorts have six seasons—here they are from lowest price to highest price: value, fall, regular, summer, peak, and holiday. The exact dates of these seasons have become convoluted over the years, but the above chart shows you the relative timing of the six seasons. Also note that certain weekends, such as Easter, Memorial Day, and Independence Day, have higher rates (below holiday but usually about regular or peak). Unfortunately, Disney no longer names their seasons, but we're continuing to use the season names in our rate charts to help you understand the concept of seasonal pricing. Value season tends to be a select days in January and February and late August/early September. Fall season is approximately mid-September through early December (not including holidays). Regular season is approximately the latter half of February, early March, and April-May. Summer season is approximately June–August. Peak season is approximately spring break times and mid-December. Holiday season are all the holidays (everything from Presidents Day and Columbus Day to Easter and the entire week of Christmas and New Years). To get exact seasonal prices, you'll want to go to DisneyWorld.com and search on your specific dates of interest.
