    We have been WDW twice with our oldest child. Both times we visited in Oct and the weather was great. I want to visit during the Christmas season. This time we are taking our 4 year old for the 1st time. Would Oct actually be better for weather and such?

    Hi Samantha,

    I think you can't go wrong with either time of the year.  It will definitely be warmer in October.

    A couple of things to consider that might help make your decision easier:
    October has Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (my favourite) 
    December has all of the Christmas decorations, parades, and the Very Merry Christmas Party.

    I am a little biased....I think there is no wrong time to visit!  If you do go in October, you really have to go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and make sure you bring a halloween costume for your 4 yr old.

    Decide on what experience you would like to have and what works best for your schedules and go from there!!

    Have a magical time!!!
