Walt Disney World Epcot Vacation Travel

More About Disney World Epcot - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
While it's always busy, Disney World is slightly slower between mid-January and March. It's summer when the crowds, combined with the heat and humidity, are stifling. Your best bet is either early in the morning or late in the day - often you can enjoy more rides in the first or last two hours of the day than you can the entire rest of the day combined.

Where to stay?
The question: to stay on Disney World Resort property or not. Disney World offers three tiers of resort pricing: Deluxe, Moderate, and Value, with accordingly apportioned amenities and in-hotel attractions. That said, they all offer "Extra Magic Hours" (early access to the theme parks), guaranteed entry when the parks are over-crowded, and frequent shuttle service to the many attractions. Off-property hotels will have shuttle transfers, but often at less regular intervals, wasting more time in transit. You'll also need a rental car, which adds to the expense, offsetting savings in the hotel rate. The "Magic Your Way Package" (resort accommodation, theme park access, and dining option) is a good value if you have a large family.

What to do?
Make use of the "Fast Pass," which, for no extra cost, allows you to insert your park entrance ticket into a designated machine at the attraction and receive a scheduled ride time a little later on. For example, use your Fast Pass ticket at a ride just before getting lunch. Once you're done eating, you can return to the ride and jump right on during the busiest time of day. At the Animal Kingdom, the animals are most active either early or late in the day, so plan accordingly. Thankfully this coincides with the least busy times of day in the park. Study the map of the park the night before to plan your visit. You'll save time by knowing where things are and where you're headed.
