    We are going to wdw Oct 2013. What are the crowds like then? We are figuring they won't be too bad since school is in session during October. Any advice and suggestions?

    Hi Shelby!

    October is a great time to visit Walt Disney World.  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party will be offered on select nights in the Magic Kingdom and the International Food and Wine Festival will be going on in Epcot.  Both are fabulous events and should not be missed!  The crowds are low to medium during the whole month, which is great, though it can still be very hot and humid in October!  Even though the crowds will be low to medium, you should still make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) as soon as you can.  ADRs can be made 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or they can be made online.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
