When Is The Best Time Of Year To Go To Walt Disney World?

Some people are limited in when they can go on vacation. They may be in a profession where they’re not allowed to go away during specific times of the year (such as accountants during the weeks leading up to Tax Day), or they might have kids who can only go out of town when school isn’t in session.

If you’re lucky enough in that you don’t have those kinds of limitations on when you can go away, you may still want to go at the “best” time.

Let’s say you want to go to WDW…when IS the best time of year to go? Well, that’s kind of a loaded question because it really depends on what you consider to be “best”…is that based on the weather? The crowds? The holidays and special events? The cheapest time of year? Hmmm…let’s look at all of the options…

What Can You Do When Traveling During Or Right After A Hurricane?

Hurricane Florence is heading for the east coast of the United States and we hope all of those in the path of the hurricane do everything to stay safe. As residents of Florida, we know what it’s like to see one of these storms heading right for you. Just know that you all are on our minds and we hope for the best possible outcome.

We also realize there are a bunch of other people out there who aren’t affected by the hurricane. They have travel plans set for a once in a lifetime trip. Maybe it’s a trip to Walt Disney World with the kids for the first time or a honeymoon in Hawaii or a bucket list trip to see the temples of Southeast Asia. Whatever it is you have planned, there’s a good chance that if you have air travel planned in the U.S. during the next week or so, Florence is going to wreak havoc on those plans and that’s the main thing on your mind right now. I understand, it’s the difference between experiencing a tragedy and being affected by it. I totally get it.

There’s not much I can do for those in the path of the storm besides telling you to evacuate if advised, hunker down and be safe if you’re allowed to stay, and make sure you have plenty of fresh water, batteries and non-perishable food (and alcohol). For those who have travel plans affected by the storm, here are some tips of what you can do to make sure you’re able to go on that trip (and, quite frankly, if you even should).

My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Travel Day (With A Happy Ending)

Typically, our travels are pretty straightforward. We fly from home to where we want to go, and back home again. For this trip, as it turned out, I needed to be in Washington D.C. for the weekend to attend Frequent Traveler University. From there I would fly to Austin and meet up with Sharon, who would be flying there direct from Orlando. From there we were due to visit Schlitterbahn, our favorite Candlewood Suites and some of our favorite restaurants in the area.

Our travels looked like this:
