    What are the least busy times to visit. We are considering an October or November 2017 visit.Could you share some information?

    Hi Lisa! The fall months is a great time to visit Walt Disney World. Generally the weather is cooler and yet still warm enough to enjoy the fun pools. There are occasional rain periods but not often and there is a lot going on in the parks.

    October is a busy month for crowds as the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is going on and that draws quite a few guests. It is also a month you can enjoy the great Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party held on select nights in the MAGIC KINGDOM. This also draws crowds as it is one of the most popular special events of the year.

    If neither of these events interest you then I suggest picking a time in November for your visit before the busy Thanksgiving week dates. Again the weather is generally wonderful in this month and the crowds will be less then many other times of the year. The one event you can likely enjoy is the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This is also held in the Magic Kingdom and a great way to get into the spirit of the holidays.

    My vote definitely is for a November visit!
