    We are planning a summer vacation...some people have advised against that but that's when we have to go...Any thoughts??? Thanks.

    Hi Mary,

    My family and I have traveled to Walt Disney World during June, July, and August several times and lived to tell the tales! I understand why some people are concerned about visiting Florida during the summer, but we have loved our summer trips. 

    The first thing people usually mention when discussing a trip to Walt Disney World in the summer is the heat and humidity. I am from coastal North Carolina and I see you are from Louisiana so we are no strangers to heat and humidity in the summer. When I checked, the temperatures at Disney in the summer were very similar to the temperatures at home. Would I rather be at home in the heat and humidity or at Walt Disney World? When we get super hot there is always an air conditioned attraction or restaurant where we can take a break. 

    The second drawback people tend to mention is the crowds. I have visited the World during almost every month of the year and have found crowds at unexpected times. The summer at Walt Disney World is busy, but with a little advanced planning it is very manageable. Having a few dining reservations and FastPass+ selections made in advance will allow you to accomplish much more than you might expect!

    While it might have been nice to take a family vacation during another time, school and work schedules made it impossible for us to visit unless we chose the summer. We planned ahead, took our time and fully enjoyed our summer visits to Walt Disney World. Don't let the naysayers stand in the way of a memorable vacation for your family!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical vacation,
