    Does it get very crowded during the first 2 weeks of October?

    Hello Raul,

    Deciding when to go to Walt Disney World can be one of the first and most important decisions you make since it affects many other planning aspects of the trip. So, I am happy to see that you have turned to the Disney Parks Moms Panel for our advice.

    I love traveling to Walt Disney World in the fall since so many of my favorite events take place during that time. The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will be in full swing by the beginning of October, as will the dates for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. However, because of the popularity of these events and the milder weather, the parks can get quite crowded. I don't think this should deter you from traveling during this time, as there is so much fun in store with these special events. 

    Plan and customize your trip with the vacation ideas and planning page on the Walt Disney World website. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for exciting news and announcements as your vacation gets closer and feel free to stop back by with more questions as they come up in your planning process. We'd love to help you make your trip more magical.

    Have a great day!
