September at Disney World has low crowds, warm temps, some fun events to attend and often even has Free Dining.
I think early May and all of September are fantastic times to visit Disney World. It's a chance to enjoy lots of fun activities while having lower prices and fewer people.
Some tips for traveling in September at Disney World:
- Although most people think low crowds = less planning, 1 thing that is more important to plan during lower crowds is figuring out the best park for each day of your trip. During busy times, the crowds are spread more evenly across the parks since nighttime entertainment is offered nightly. When traveling in September, you should pay special attention to the best/worst parks suggestions for each day (shown below) to avoid the busiest crowds.
- Weather in September at Disney World is still pretty hot. Consider taking mid-day breaks from the sun and crowds during your trip.
|Explanation of park recommendations and abbreviations below
In general, I recommend avoiding parks with Extra Magic Hours because they tend to be the busiest parks that day. Animal Kingdom is an exception because it's usually not too bad, even on EMH days.Magic Kingdom usually sees a surge on Saturdays, so other parks are usually a better choice.MK = Magic Kingdom, EP = Epcot, HS = Hollywood Studios, AK = Animal Kingdom,
TL = Typhoon Lagoon, BB = Blizzard Beach, EMH = Extra Magic Hour
