Disney Through the Seasons

When to Visit Disney World Resort

It’s pretty much always a good time to visit Disney World Resort. That’s because there’s always something special going on here. On top of that, Florida enjoys some of the most consistently perfect weather in the world. Even in January, the average daily high reaches 72 degrees, and the warm summers bring temperatures in the low nineties. That means that the weather will never hold you back from experiencing the famous theme parks, attractions, festivals, and shopping this destination is known for. Read on to discover what each season has to offer.


Spring is a popular time to visit, thanks to school holidays and temperate weather. If you’re planning on visiting during this time, make sure to see the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival (March 4 to June 1), one of the park’s most impressive events. A variety of themed gardens are created that show off spectacular blooms and creative landscaping. The festival also includes tantalizing food vendors and plenty of fun activities to take part in.


For those that enjoy warm weather, summer is a great time to enjoy all that Florida has to offer. Start by staying cool at one of the fantastic Disney water parks, either Disney’s Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon. There are also plenty of Disney World summer events to experience, including the spectacular 4th of July fireworks and festivities. While you’re there, don’t forget to explore the popular Disney Springs shopping options. 


If you prefer to avoid the heat of the summer, fall might just be the perfect time to visit. The season kicks off with the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which usually begins at the end of August and runs through November. October brings Disney Springs Halloween events and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. You can also treat your family to a Disney World Thanksgiving — special events are held at the parks, and various restaurants around the resort offer lovely Thanksgiving meals.  


The magic of the holiday season makes visiting the area during winter extra special. There’s plenty to do, with the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, the Disney Christmas lights, Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas to enjoy. You can take advantage of Disney Springs holiday shopping, and if you stay through January 1, you can experience the magic of Disney World New Year’s Eve.
