    We are tossed up between going to Disney in Sept or Oct, which is the better idea? I'm worried about big crowds in Oct because of the food and wine festival, but definitely want to be there for the fall again....

    Thanks for the question Christine! In deciding between these two months, the average temperatures are similar, with it being just a bit cooler in October, but still gorgeous. Given this, I'd base my choice on airfare and resort specials. Visit the Special Offers page of the Disney World website often to see what deals arise. 

    Epcot can get busy during the International Food and Wine Festival, which runs from September 28 through November 11, 2012. For me, it's worth it though, because I absolutely love it! It does tend to be busier on weekends, so if you can arrange your schedule accordingly, you can avoid some of the crowds!

    Hope this helps Christine! Write us back with any other questions!
