    We are in the process of booking our second trip for October 2013. I was wondering if the crowds were lower the week before Columbus Day weekend? I have heard the week of Columbus Day have a higher crowd level.

    Hi Misty,

    The week before Columbus Day weekend is generally a great time to go.  You'll notice the crowds get heavier as you get closer to the weekend, with guests trying to stretch out the holiday.  It's really nice.  The weather is warm, the parks are decorated for fall, and Epcot's Food and Wine Festival will just be starting.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
