    Hi Tatyana,

    You must be so excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  Autumn is an excellent time to visit the Disney theme parks as the crowds from summer have dwindled away.  Personally, if I were choosing between a September and October visit, I would choose October because the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will be taking place throughout the entire month of October.  It's very fun and exciting to taste some of the international treats offered around World Showcase during this time of year.  October temperatures are also milder than you will find in September.  I much prefer the milder temperature of mid-autumn to the hot weather of late summer.  It will still be warm enough to swim and enjoy the water parks in October but you're less likely to encounter scorching heat. 

    Enjoy your stay at Disney's All Star Movies Resort or the new Art of Animation Resort!  Two adjacent standard rooms at either of these resorts would be an excellent choice for your family.  Personally, I would choose the Little Mermaid rooms at Disney's Art of Animation Resort because it is new and I bet your kids would love the pools there.  You can even hear Dory and her underwater friends communicate with each other as you swim the in feature pool.  The food choices at the Landscape of Flavors food court are pretty spectacular too.  Definitely try the gelato!

    Let us know if you need any additional advice as you plan your trip. We'd be happy to help!
