    Cant wait for Dream vacation to Disney World... but we are going to miss Mickeys Not So Scary and Mickeys Very Merry.. We will be there starting November 1st to November 5th. Right between these two events. Is there anything else special we could do?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. You are going to visit Walt Disney World at one of my favorite times of year. In autumn, the weather in Florida is still warm but not as hot as during the summer, and the crowds tend to be lower as most children are in school.

    I have good news for you! Your vacation is during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! This festival is fabulous. There are kiosks set up around Epcot at which you can purchase and sample fare from around the world. There are events hosted that focus on food and drink at various restaurants. At the Festival Center, there are seminars and demonstrations offered, including some by celebrity chefs. The Eat to the Beat Concert Series features great acts in concerts each night. Monitor the link that I provided for more information as specific activities for this year are released.

    You are also visiting during the runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend. This event sees may races over the course of the weekend. Although many are sold out, they are still available for registration through travel providers and charity groups. Also, the kids races are still available, so if you have any little ones with you who would like to do a race, you can sign them up. Again, see the link that I provided for more information on these races and if you would like to register.

    I hope that these ideas are helpful for you, Kelly! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
