Walt Disney World is magical and wonderful anytime of the year but we all know the summer in florida is HOT HOT HOT! Taking advantage of Disney in the fall has many advantages. Here are the top five…..
Number Five…. Cooler Weather – Even though the days can still run in the 80s it is better than the upper 90s you experience in June, July and August. Depending on the month you might even need a jacket at night for those late night fireworks! Cool breezes and less afternoon rain are also advantages. You should keep in mind that it is hurricane season and while Disney is not usually effected sometimes the airport is!
Number Four…. Less Crowds… With children heading back to school the crowds in the fall are far less than the summer crowds. This means fewer lines and less waiting, also easier to make those dining reservations! It is a perfect time as well for locals to take toddlers to the parks without having to worry about too many “big kids”!
Number Three… Great Deals… With fall being a less popular time at Disney you can usually get pretty good deals! Free dining is still going on if you book by September 29th! Feel Free to Call our Magical Vacation Planner Matthew at 612-564-EARS! We can help you plan the best vacation at the best prices with tons of extras!!
Number Two…. Special Events! From Food and Wine Festival at Epcot to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party there are TONS of special events that take place in the fall! It’s fun to be able to experience some special things Disney only offers this time of year!
Number One… Decorations! I know your all laughing but no one does decorations like Disney! You will be immersed in a Fall Wonderland forgetting you are in the middle of central Florida. Disney decorates for Halloween and Fall like no others! You can find pumpkins and leaves at every turn and even some special spooks, All friendly of course!!
Warm clothes, candy apples, falling leaves and football. Nothing says fall like all these things, except to Floridians, in which case candy apples, Mickey shaped pumpkins and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party have to remind us of fall! There are few events as wonderful this time of year as the Halloween party!
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party is a special ticketed event that is held at Magic Kingdom on select nights. The tickets range from $50-69 depending on age and date. Yes, I know your thinking “Really? More money?…” This event is totally worth it! There are only a certain number of tickets sold per event night which limits the number of people who can attend. What does this mean for you? Short to no lines for all your favorite attractions, TONS of Trick or treating around the Magic Kingdom, Multitude of character interactions, and lots of great photo ops of your favorite characters in their costumes!
The highlight of the Not So Scary Halloween party is the Hallowishes fireworks and the Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween parade featuring a special appearance by a headless parade escort! The fireworks and parade can only be seen on party nights! Be sure to dress up in costumes and head to this amazing event, You wont be disappointed!
