    We are going to WDW 10/8-10/15...how are the crowds typically around this time of year? How much more crowded does the Epcot Food & Wine Festival make it? Thanks!!

    Hi Kristin!

    That is a great time to visit Walt Disney World!  The crowds will be relatively lite and the weather should be nice, though in some years, it's still hot and humid in October!  The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is a great event and should not be missed!  It's really fun trying new foods from the around the world.  The festival really only impacts the crowds on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays -- that's when locals will usually visit Epcot to enjoy the festival.  My recommendation is to avoid Epcot on those days, especially Saturdays and Sundays, if you can.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
