When is the Best Time to Visit Disney World Florida?

If you are planning on visiting Disney World, one question may be: When is the best time to go?  There are a few factors to take into account such as crowds, weather, special events and park hours.

Special Events and Park Hours

Even busy days can be rewarding, depending on when you go to the park. Daytime hours may have long lines but evenings can be wonderfully uncrowded. Parks are typically open from 9am to 11pm but it is best to check the official Disney Park Hours as they do vary for different times of the year.  Special Events take place often and can be great fun. Disney offers a complete special events calendar for the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom parks.

Weather

During the summer months, expect plenty of heat and humidity. However, for many rides, line-ups are in the shade or in air-conditioned areas. There are other coping measures such as enjoying a wet ride or leaving the park at the heat of the day and returning in the evening.

Thunderstorms do happen often in the summertime but the rain doesn’t usually last long and it’s a chance for things to cool down. Hurricanes are rarely a problem in Orlando because it is inland.

Crowds

As Disney World is a popular place, there are definitely peak periods. We have found a couple of 2013 Disney World crowd calendars to help you find the best and worst days to go. Generally, January to early February, early May (after Spring Break and Easter), late August and the Fall months are the least crowded.

Ticket pricing may also be another factor in your trip planning. Find out how Disney World ticket prices compare  over the years.

When it comes down to it, the best time to visit Disney World Florida is when you can go. Everybody should travel to Walt Disney World and the Magic Kingdom at least once in their lives.

Have you ever been to Disney World? What time of year did you go? What was your experience?
