If you want to visit Disney World on a budget, knowing when to come and why is very important. The best time to visit Disney World is when crowds, prices, and temperatures are all – LOW!
Families with school kids should know that not all school breaks are created equal. If affordability is a top priority, consider avoiding these peak times:
Holiday Periods: The most expensive time to visit Disney World is during the Christmas holiday and Easter break. Not only is it expensive it is crowded! Holiday periods in 2014 are Easter (Apr. 13-20, 2014) and Christmas (Dec.19, 2014-Jan. 2, 2015).
Peak Periods: After the holiday periods, the next most expensive times to visit are during peak periods, which generally coincide with other school vacations and special events. Peak periods in 2014 are: Winter Break (Feb. 13-22, 2014), Spring Break (Mar. 7-Apr. 12, 2014), post-Easter (Apr. 21-26), Summer Vacation (May 30-Aug. 2, 2014) and the week prior to the Christmas high season (Dec. 12-18, 2014).
Value Periods: But wait there is some good news! That leaves plenty of other times during the year when you can find good prices and encounter fewer crowds.
January to mid-February: If your kids are too young for school or if you home school your kids the weeks immediately after New Year offer the very best rates of the year. School kids head back in class following the Christmas break, so the parks are less crowded then, too.
May: It’s the end of the Flower and Garden Festival and the kids aren’t out of school yet. The weather is almost perfect. The early part of the May is fantastic crowd-wise and is a best keep secret. Pricing for accommodations especially for vacation home rentals during this time are the most affordable!
September: A great time of year to travel to Disney, tons of vacation package deals and accommodation costs are at their lowest! Crowds in the parks are almost non existent and lines are short so you get to experience more of the parks throughout the day. Weather is still phenomenal and the evenings cool down enough to remind you that its fall.
