    When is the best time of year to come?

    Hi, Douglas!

    There isn't a bad time to go to Walt Disney World, just times that you might find more preferable to others. Factor in weather preferences (it's really, really hot in the summer), or if you'd like to catch a special event - there's magic all year.

    In the spring, you can take in the splendor of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. In the fall, you'll find Epcot in the spotlight again with the Epcot International Food and Wine FestivalMickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is a must-do in the fall, and the weather then is starting to cool off and become less humid.

    If I could only choose one time of the year to visit, it would be during the Christmas holiday season. There is just a special kind of magic that fills the air as the theme parks deck the halls. Each Walt Disney World resort hotel shines with themed decorations and Christmas trees, and events like the Candlelight Processional and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party just might be the cause of sugar plums dancing in your dreams.

    There's something magical in each of the four seasons at Walt Disney World. You just have to pick your favorite and jump right in!
