Hello guys! This is a new series that I am starting where I will give you tips and tricks on planning your WDW trip.
So, you know that you want to go to WDW so now you need to pick what time of year is best for you. The same as most vacations depending on the time of year you go depends on the cost of the trip. You need to keep this in mind when booking.
I always go at the beginning of May because it suits me best. I will explain why its best for me and then I will go through a few more options.
Right, I don’t have any children and there are no small children in my family so we don’t need to worry about going in the school holidays, which is wonderful for us because it can get very busy. I have only been with my entire family once and we stayed off site so in consideration to a family having to book a resort in May I’m not sure how busy of the prices but I’m pretty sure that it will be a big saving compared to the peek months.
Other than the one trip that I went on with my family the party consists of 2. Me and my Boyfriend or myself and my best friend. So other than price and low crowds why else do we pick May. Well, it is right before hurricane season which usually runs from June through to November. You may still get the odd shower but its never anything too bad and everything drys off in minutes.
Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot! I had never been to Epcot, it had never interested me but going May this year (2016) I was blown away! The topiaries are so beautiful and the whole park is incredibly colourful and perfect for spring. The festival also offers more food a drink options from pop up kiosks in each pavilion where you can try smaller portions of delicious traditional food.
So other times to go are around Valentines where they have a few more princes around the parks. Halloween because Disney know how to do Halloween, you also get to meet the villains at Mickeys not so scary Halloween party (which is an extra ticket)! Finally , Christmas time, the park is magical as it is but with all the Christmas decorations up it is out of this world!
If you can afford to go in the autumn months then i would advise going last week of October and to the first week of November because you get to see the Halloween decorations and the Christmas ones. They also have Food and Wine Festival at Epcot from end of August to mid November.
Regardless of when you pick to go, always look on their website for deals! Disney ALWAYS have great deals on, from free memory maker, free dining plans and 14 days for 7. If you can’t find it on their site try typing in Walt Disney World offers on google or call them on 0800 169 0749 and just ask.
Hope this helps and I will see you next week for which hotel to stay at!
