Planning Your October 2016 Disney Vacation

Here are some helpful tips and information for vacationers that are looking into visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the month of October!

The top three questions that everyone always asks is; how’s the weather, is it crowded and how much will it cost me? Well keep reading because I’m about to tell you!

During the month of October you can expect a moderate to heavy crowd level. I only say this because it is way into the Halloween Spirit at the Disney Parks and everyone is there trying to make the best of it.  You can expect the Haunted Mansion and other such rides to be a long wait during this time of year.I would  still suggest staying at a resort with a nice pool to take advantage of during the middle of the day when it is the hottest! It will not start to cool down in central Florida until November and even then it’s still hot!


October continues starts the fall season at Disney World. During this month you will see the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations going up around the parks. The Magic Kingdom will hosting Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties to select guests! They are known to be a lot of fun plus you get a lot of candy! You also get to dress up as your favorite character! To find out more about Mickey’s No So Scary Halloween Party, click here!
