The Most Comfortable Time to Go to Walt Disney World

This is part of The Comfortable Guide to Walt Disney World

OVERVIEW: THE MOST COMFORTABLE TIME TO VISIT WALT DISNEY WORLD

This site provides precise instructions elsewhere on when to go to Walt Disney World, the next best dates, and what to budget for such a trip. These instructions are designed for typical first time family visitors who are not sure whether or not they will ever return.

This page addresses when to go to Walt Disney World for a subset of first time visitors: those seeking the most comfortable visit.

It is part of a series about the most comfortable way to visit Walt Disney World.  Its companion series is about the most inexpensive way to visit Walt Disney World,

I am publishing both series at the same time to help those who are looking for bargains and deals on some things, so that they can spend more on others!!  Links to everything in these two series are at the bottom of the page.

MORE ON THE MOST COMFORTABLE TIME TO VISIT WALT DISNEY WORLD

The most comfortable period at Walt Disney World is that between one week after Easter and mid-May.

  • In 2015, arrival dates of April 11 through May 9

WHY DISNEY WORLD THEN?

Walt Disney World after Thanksgiving, and well before Christmas, is a magical time of the year, and one that also has low prices and low crowds.

That’s why this site recommends this period for when to go, particularly for families not sure if they will ever return.

This period does have one problem: very unreliable weather, with a reasonable chance that it will be too cool for adults to enjoy the pools.  (Kids love heated pools in all weather…)

If there’s no reason why you can’t come back in the late November-mid-December period at another time, then you can find fine weather for your first visit.

Late spring has near perfect weather.  Arriving after the Easter crowds have departed, but before the summer rains begin in mid-May, is the best way to combine a visit to Walt Disney World with relaxing time at the pool.

This period also has lower crowds than average–but higher than those in December.   Its prices, though higher than those in December, are still reasonable.

NEXT MOST COMFORTABLE DISNEY WORLD OPTIONS

Your next best options are later October up until the week before Thanksgiving week, excluding the first full week of November (Jersey Week).  This period typically also has perfect weather, and reasonable crowds and prices.

It comes in second here because it is cooler and more variable than late spring, and is also still in the hurricane season.  However, it does avoid the peak of the hurricane season, and is likely to provide a wonderful visit.

My and i are going to Disney world for 9 days. I’m getting 6 base tickets planing on returing to two of the parks. My question is ,if we go to magic kingdom in the morning ,could we leave the park to rest up and come back the same day?

Hi Jenny, yes you can! With a base ticket you can enter, leave, and return to the same park all day long!
