    My family and I are visiting September 10-14th. I was wondering how bad are the crowds and do we really need to book fast pass ahead of time?

    Hi Christie!

    September is a time to visit Walt Disney World when many of the school age children are back at school. But this does not mean that there will not be guests in the parks. This month has become popular for the wonderful Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival. Many guests from all over the country will come to enjoy the food and drink and entertainment held in Epcot every fall. Of course they will also visit the other three parks during their stays.

    My advice to all guests is to definitely lock in your allowed three FastPasses per guest for each day. I know your plans can change and you can then change your FastPass choices and times but at least you will have something reserved which will allow you to enjoy some of your favorite attractions without long waits in lines.

    The weather in September is till going to be quite warm so make your plans with plenty of time to rest and enjoy yourself without stress. I am sure it will be a magical time at Walt Disney World!
