Best dates to visit Disney World in 2021 - 2022 1

Planning your trip to Walt Disney World can be a daunting task. There is so much to see and do! One of the first things you need to decide is when to visit the resort. That begs the question: when is the best time to visit?

When deciding on the best time to visit, most guests plan around the crowd level and the weather. Due to the pandemic, Disney now requires a park pass reservation along with valid park admission. The reservation system helps to control the crowd level. In the past, crowd levels typically followed school holidays. Any times kids were out of school, the parks were bound to be busier. Now with so many school districts still doing online school or a hybrid, families have more flexibility.

If you are looking to go when crowds are typically lower, keep in mind park hours tend to be shorter during those times. When the parks are more crowded, they open earlier and stay open later. Also, when crowd levels are lowest, nighttime shows aren’t always shown every day. Special events like the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival also contribute to crowd levels.

As for the best times to go for weather, that’s pretty obvious. The summer months are the hottest and most humid in Florida. Winter months are the coolest but can also have cold fronts which make swimming at the resort pools chilly.
