    Trying to decide between September or October. Which one to choose? Thanks a bunch!!

    Hi Mary!

    I recommend going in October over September if you can.  Both are great in terms of crowds, but there's a better chance for nicer weather in October.  Also, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will be running in October and that's a lot of fun!  It's a great way to try new foods from around the world; it's one of my favorite events at Walt Disney World!

    Also, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is a lot of fun.  It's offered on select nights in both September and October, but I think the party is more fun closer to Halloween.  Also, it's hard to be in the Halloween spirit, and in a Halloween costume, if it's a very warm night!

    However, that said, both months are good and I've been to Walt Disney World many times in September myself!  Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
