    Was considering May12-18 or Sept22-28, but we went in May this year. Now considering April 21-27 or Sept 22-28 for 2013. Pros/Cons/Preferences between April/Sept dates? Would love MNSSHP but tad concerned about weather-Hurricanes/HotHotHot?

    Hi Amy!

    This is a great question. Between April and September, I would definitely pick September. While there is a good chance September will be hotter and more humid, there are several factors in September's favor:  the crowds will generally be less, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party will be offered on select nights in the Magic Kingdom, and if you arrive near the end of September you might be able to enjoy Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival. The Food and Wine Festival and the Halloween Party are my two favorite special events at Walt Disney World. Both are fabulous. The fact that crowds are historically low in September is an added bonus. 

    I hope this helps. Good luck with your decision and please write back with more questions.
