    Hi, we are planning our next trip and trying to decide on when to go- we want to avoid crowds. How are the crowds and weather in September? Any recommendations for specific weeks in September?

    Hi Ann Marie! Thank you so much for sharing all of your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's so nice to see you back again.

    We love visiting Walt Disney World Resort in September! (In fact, prior to having school aged kiddos, that was one of our favorite times of year to go.) The weather is nice and it's a great time of year to be in Florida. We do typically experience rain on several days but usually just afternoon showers. I do recommend you take rain gear and an extra pair of shoes with you just to be sure you stay as dry as possible.

    Around Labor Day and during the weekends, you will see heavier crowds but it's nothing you can't handle with a little planning. (And based on your questions, I can tell you are an expert planner!) The remainder of September is practically perfect in every way! We typically experience very low crowd levels.

    Plus, September is a perfect month to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! There is so much to do, see, and, of course, taste during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! The Eat to the Beat Concert Series is so fun and the demonstrations and seminars are amazing! Of course, the main attraction is the food and wine and there is a ton of both! It's a great time to be at Epcot!

    You are going to love Walt Disney World Resort in September!

    Thanks again for sharing your questions with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical September vacation at Walt Disney World Resort!
