    I have talked my husband into Disney (his first time, my first in 10 years)! We are bringing our 2 kids (3) (2). How long would you recommend booking/planning before the arrival? What time of year do you recommend? we are'nt working around school sched

    Hi Jennifer,

    I'm so excited for you guys!  A first time trip and a return trip after 10 years?!?!  Not only will you enjoy seeing Disney through a first timer's eyes, but you'll be one too!  You can't imagine how many wonderful things have been added to Disney throughout the years!  Did I say I was excited for you?  WOOHOO!!!

    In my opinion, the best time of year to visit Walt Disney World is right now!  The days immediately following the Labor Day holiday are when you're going to find the lowest crowds because kids are back in school!  I would start looking into booking your resort now.  It's very normal for Guests to start planning their vacations at least a year ahead of time. 

    Let us know if you have any other questions, we're always happy to help!  Have a magical day:)

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
