    We are planning a family vacation to Walt Disney World. We have never been before and would like to make the most out of our vacation without breaking the bank. When is the best time of the year to go and why?

    Hi Bonnie!

    In my opinion, the best times of year to go are October (avoiding Columbus Day weekend) through November (avoiding Thanksgiving week), December (avoiding Christmas and New Year's weeks) and January through February (avoiding President's Day weekend),  These are all times that are typically lower crowds, and are also a little easier on the pocket book as they are not high demand times (such as Christmas). 

    Because these are generally lower attendance times, there are often Special Offers available that can also make the vacation even more affordable!

    Have a magical vacation!
