    Hello! I’m planning to go to Disney in January. During the third and last week. Is it possible to book hotel and park tickets direct, without an travel agency? And I would like to know more about the weather in the end of January.

    Seja muito bem-vinda ao planDisney, Michelle!

    Thank you for taking the time to send your first question our way. It is a pleasure to help you plan a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I am excited to hear you are considering staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. You will have the experience of a lifetime! Besides immersing yourself in the magic during your visit, you will also take advantage of benefits like Early Theme Park Entry, complimentary transportation and parking, and more. One of my favorite Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits is being able to make dining and Enchanting Extras Collection reservations for the whole duration of my stay (up to 10 nights) 60 days before my check-in date.

    As a fellow Brazilian, I enjoy visiting Mickey Mouse in late January because it is our summer break in Brazil, so my girls are on vacation, and the weather at the Walt Disney World is typically pleasant. The average high is 22 degrees Celsius, and the average low is usually around 11 degrees Celsius. It is the perfect weather to explore the parks without worrying about the heat. As temperatures can vary, be ready to dress in layers. Mornings can be a bit chilly for us Brazilians, so bring a sweater or jacket that you can easily take off, carry with you, and then put back on in the evening when it gets a bit cold and windy at the parks. To plan and pack accordingly, I recommend checking the weather forecast a week before your vacation begins. If you need to purchase clothing items while on vacation, be sure to check out all the shopping opportunities at Disney Springs.

    You are welcome to book your Disney adventure by directly contacting the Walt Disney World Resort in Brazil. Portuguese-speaking Cast Members will be happy to check availability for your travel dates and help you select the perfect Disney Resort hotel and tickets. If you decide to book a Disney Vacation Package, including a hotel stay and theme park tickets, please consider adding a Disney Dining Plan to your booking to turn your vacation into an all-inclusive experience.

    planDisney tip: EPCOT International Festival of the Arts usually begins in mid-January, so do not forget to plan a visit to EPCOT. The festival is a great event already included with theme park admission that allows Guests to celebrate not only art but also delicious cuisine! Please, keep checking the festival website for 2024 dates.
