    What month is good to take a 2 year old and a 5 year old - October or November? What is a good place to stay for your first visit?

    Hi Jenny!

    Both months are nice but I would recommend the month of October.  The weather is still nice and hot.  The crowd levels are quite manageable and Disney offers a special Halloween party on select nights during the month of October.  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is one of my families favourite special events.  The whole family gets to dress up and take part in special Halloween events throughout the park. There are special parades, fireworks and you even get to trick-or-treat through the Magic Kingdom.  Even the characters are dressed up for Halloween.  It is a great experience for the whole family.  I have linked you with the Halloween party page on the Disney website.  Click here to learn more about the party.  

    Happy planning!
