The Best & Worst Times of the Year to Visit Walt Disney World

Best for Crowd Levels: January – February

After Marathon weekend (early January) is over and before the Princess Half Marathon weekend (late February), the parks typically have a decent dip in attendance.  This makes it a great time to take advantage of fewer crowds.  This is also when some of the attractions or one of the water parks may see closures, but Disney won’t close several things at once.



Hi! I’m Kristin, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. We vacationed at Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what maked more sense was just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way.
