5 Reasons to Visit Walt Disney World in the Fall

5 Reasons to Visit Walt Disney World in the Fall

We love fall. There’s just something so magical about the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and dreams of all things pumpkin spice. Fall at Walt Disney World is no different! Although Florida isn’t typically a state that sees the beauty of this season like some of us northerners do, Walt Disney World does a fantastic job of bringing in the new season with its own version of festive magic for fall.

Why Fall is the Best Time to Visit Walt Disney World

Fall is one of our favorite seasons to visit Walt Disney World. While some of it’s a bit nostalgic, since our first trip together was in September many moons ago- fall really is a great time to visit the happiest place on Earth. Here are 5 reasons you should visit Walt Disney World in the Fall!

Cooler Weather in the Fall in Florida

Ok, ok, let’s not get carried away here. You’re not going to see 65-degree temps at Walt Disney World in September. It’s just not going to happen. You will, however, see cooler weather. While the beginning of September is still pretty hot, by the end of the month, you’ll see those temps start to fall. And by October, the weather is definitely more comfortable. Keep in mind if you’re coming from the north, you likely won’t be considering these temps cool, but you also won’t be battling the heat and humidity of the summer months. Also, keep in mind, that this is the rainy season. Pack your poncho and enjoy it like a pro. You’ll be rewarded with lower crowds and slightly lower temps after a classic Florida afternoon rainstorm.

Lower Crowds in the Fall at Walt Disney World

With the shift in Disney crowd levels over the last few years, we can’t really say this is the lowest you’ll see crowds at Walt Disney World. But we can confidently say that the crowds were a little more manageable during the fall months than other times of the year. December, for instance, is absolutely unbearable in regards to crowds. This obviously varies from week to week so be sure to check your crowd calendars for your specific time frame.  Of the fall months, September will be less crowded than October. We’ve broken down the Best Times to Visit Walt Disney World based on crowds, cost, and more.

Halloween at Magic Kingdom

Even if you have Halloween plans at home, know that Halloween at Walt Disney World is worth the trip! Magic Kingdom features both Disney After Hours Boo Bash and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as major events happening in the Fall months. From mid-August through October 31, you can have extra spooky fun with new snacks, parties, merchandise, decorations, and more.

Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Disney’s Food and Wine Festival runs from mid-July through mid-November. Featuring small plates both savory and sweet, we love trying the new cuisines that appear in the World Showcase countries. From the drinks in France to the tacos in Mexico, and desserts in Japan, there is so much to try. We highly recommend spending at least 2 days in EPCOT if you’re visiting for the festival, simply so you have a chance to get around to the food booths. In addition to food, you can also experience the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, Remy’s Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt game, and Emile’s Fromage Montage Challenge. We love this festival for families and Disney Adults alike.

It’s Less Expensive in the Fall at Walt Disney World

This time of year is simply a cheaper time of year to visit. You can get the rundown of the Cheapest Times to Visit Walt Disney World in our post. And While it’s never a guarantee, generally everything seems to be less expensive in the fall months. Whether you’re flying, renting a car, or looking at Walt Disney World resorts, fall discounts tend to be pretty significant. We’ve even noticed Disney Springs area hotels offering more perks during the fall months, like free parking and heavily discounted room rates. Keep an eye on Walt Disney Worlds Special Offers page for all the current promotions. We hope you love this time of year as much as we do!
