Do you have a 2020 Disney World trip planned, or one in the works? Learn the best times to head to Disney World today! Many factors go into deciding the best time to go. This includes cost, crowds and weather.
Most of January
January is typically known as a low crowd month. However weekends to avoid include Marathon weekend and the weekend prior to Martin Luther King Day and Pro Bowl weekend.
Most of February
February will see a rise of crowds starting Valentine’s Day through President’s Day. However prior to this, crowds are low, prior to the Princess Half Marathon (2/20-2/23).
Early May brings light crowds as schools are in session. Crowds increase as schools start to release for summer and Memorial Day weekend approaches.
Crowds lighten up second half of August, when schools start back in session. There are also no major events going on this month that would effect crowds.
Most of September – October
Fall is a wonderful time to visit, most of September brings light crowds after Labor Day weekend as most schools have restarted. Weekends will draw more crowds for the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. Then October is light crowds, less Columbus Day Weekend.
After the Wine & Dine Race Weekend and prior to the week of Thanksgiving, is a great low crowd time to visit.
Not Visiting During One Of These Times?
However, do not be discouraged if you are not going during one of these times. Any time at Disney World can be magical, even during high crowd times.
The most pleasant weather in Florida is seen late March through early June. Then, June-September brings the highest monthly rainfall totals and late August begins hurricane season.
