Choosing a Walt Disney World®
Selecting which Walt Disney World®
Resort Hotel you would like to vacation at can be a daunting task. It is
important to understand that this early decision of choosing which resort
to stay at and where it is located within this vast entertainment complex
will play a large part in dictating the pace and even the style of your
A good place to begin is in answering the simple question about whether
you would like to stay near the Magic Kingdom®
area or Disney's Animal Kingdom®
Theme Park. So, before you just throw a dart at a map of the Walt
Resort and select just any resort, take just a little time to see what is
where and how close this is to that.

"What's New" at Disney
In a recent interview with Jackie Morris, Regional Sales
Walt Disney World®, we
asked the following question and more...
Why are you changing your product?
The new Magic Your Way Vacation program delivers the longer vacations that
guests are looking for. These new tickets and packages address the demand of
our guests, as recent research has shown that families desire longer vacations,
but have felt they couldn’t afford it.
The new product also allows guests to enjoy longer vacations – something recent
research has shown families are truly interested in. With the new Magic Your
Way Vacation packages, a family of four can enjoy a 6-night/7-day Walt Disney
World vacation – staying at a great on-property Disney hotel with tickets to
all four theme parks – for less than $1,500. (Price based on a family of four
with two adults, one junior (ages 10-17) and child (ages 3-9) at a Disney Value
Resort in regular or value season).

Well, this was certainly a first. We
would be having a character dining experience without the kids. My
wife and I had been celebrating our wedding anniversary, at Walt
Disney World® and on our last morning had decided to break bread
with Winnie the Pooh and friends.
Would the absence of our kids subtract from the magic? For the
answer to that question and a peek at the menu
Travel Tips for the Best Times of
Year to Visit Walt Disney World Resort®
The best time to visit Walt Disney World®
Resort is when the crowds are at their least. Diminished crowds will
make for a more relaxed and enjoyable vacation. So, if you are
looking for shorter waits for attractions and more fun you should
ask yourself two questions. What are the busy times of year and what
the slower times of year.
The busy times of year are the dates surrounding the Christmas
holiday, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving, Easter weekend and spring
break for schools. Also included among the busiest times of the year
are holiday weekends.
Hurray Schools Out
Another rule of thumb is that when school is out of session you can
expect to face crowded conditions. So traditionally June, July and
August are highly traveled dates and should be avoided if possible.
Know When to Go
The least busy times of the year are just after Thanksgiving Weekend
through the first week or two of December. Just after News Years Day
till just before President’s Day Weekend. Also included in this
category are the months of May and September.
I Hear You but...
So why do most people travel to this mega attraction during the
busier times of the year knowing they will face crowds and not
choose the least travel times? Personal schedules, work schedules,
school schedules and simply a lack of understanding can play a part
in the scheduling of our vacations. Is it worth juggling schedules
and even taking the kids out of school in order to take advantage of
the slower times of the year? In a word, yes.
So What’s The Catch?
What are the negatives associated with picking the “off seasons”
dates? One of the negatives that you will find during the slower
times of the year is shorter park hours. For example the Magic
Park may not open until 9:00am and
may close as early as 6:00pm. In addition to the shortened operating
hours guests might also find that some parades or firework
presentations will be limited to the weekends and possibly
eliminated entirely. Also Disney will take advantage of the
decreased attendance and close some of the most popular attractions
