    Hi, this is a hard decision, planning on taking our GD she will be 10 ( her first time) have had to reschedule 2x now. Wondering if we should wait till next year April? Or go this year Oct. So many changes, we want her to love it, advice please :)

    Howdy Stacey!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I am so excited for you and your granddaughter!  Everyone’s first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is a memory you will never forget!  Since we do not know what the future might bring, I would recommend making your reservation for October.  I love the month of October at the Walt Disney World Resort!  The weather is perfect, and the crowds are typically lower.  April tends to be a warmer and busier month because most schools are enjoying spring break.

    This October, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be in full swing!  I love the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and it is excellent for all ages!  This year is extra special!  They have the topiary displays that can typically only be viewed in the spring throughout the festival.  These topiary displays make the best backdrop for photos.

    Also, since this will be the first visit, I highly recommend adding Memory Maker to your vacation!  With Memory Maker, you can enjoy having your picture captured by all the Disney PhotoPass Photographers, and all of the photographs from attractions will be added to your Memory Maker!  Memory Maker is the best way to have an unlimited amount of photos taken at one great price.

    Make sure to get your “First Visit” button to wear around the Walt Disney World Resort!  You never know what unexpected memories may be added to your vacation when cast members see that it is your granddaughter’s first visit! 
    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blogs for all updates as your vacation approaches!  The Disney Parks Blog is the best way to stay up-to-date on everything in the months to come!

    If you have any more questions while you are planning your vacation, please stop back by planDisney!  We look forward to helping you again, Stacey!

    See Ya Real Soon,
