    We are traveling to Disney for the very first time at the end of September. My 2 boys are 4 and 7. Is this a good time to go, what's the weather like and is there anything special since i have a preschooler? Your site is great!

    We're a fellow September vacationing family.  We always debate about visiting WDW during a different time of year but somehow we just keep coming back to September.  Fall trips to Disney come hand-in-hand with a lot of perks that you won't find during other times of the year.  There are some cons too, unfortunately.  Here are some of both:

    Pros
    - the month of September falls within value travel season meaning you can usually save big with great room rates and special promotions
    - crowd levels are very manageable
    - though still warm enough to enjoy the pools and water parks, the weather is far more tolerable in September than in the height of summer
    - the occurrence of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
    - Epcot's Food and Wine Festival

    Cons
    - the likelihood of afternoon thunderstorms
    - the possibility of hurricanes affecting your trip

    For us, the pros outweigh the cons.  Hopefully you'll agree!  Have a great trip.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
