    We have to change our WDW trip from May to Oct & are wondering which week is better to visit? We are thinking of the 1st wk but it is the beginning of the Food & Wine Festival. Also, I believe it is the 40th anniversary of WDW. Is that weekend t

    Hi Jennifer!
    Sometimes change is I feel October is a way better month to visit Walt Disney World anyway. The month of October is sure to be a busy one this year mainly for the two reasons that you mention. Therefore, I am going to recommend coming later in October than the first week, but my reasoning has nothing to do with has to do with the weather. As mentioned, the crowds are going to be there anyway, but the later in the month you can come, the better the weather will be (or should be). Early October can still be VERY warm and VERY humid, yet a few weeks into the month, it's like someone flipped a switch and the weather typicaly becomes so much more comfortable. So, that may be something to consider.
    Another advantage of October over May is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party...a must do with the family. This is a separate "hard ticket" (meaning separate admission) event that is a spectacular way to spend a fall evening in the Magic Kingdom.
    So, let May come and go, but focus on the latter part of October if you are able to go then. I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical trip this fall!! :)
