What to expect each month at Disney World – PREP047

Disney World varies a lot by month in terms of crowds, temperatures and special events so today, I've got info about every month of the year to help you decide when to go.

I also have a quick tip on the best source for accurate info from Disney.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Quick tip of the day

Not all sources of Disney info are fantastic. The online Disney World chat gives incorrect info frequently, the Cast Members on the phone are hit or miss but the best source is the Disney Parks Moms Panel which usually gets it right.

I would like to go during our spring break, the week of March 16. My daughter has her heart set on dining with the princesses and I see on the monthly dashboard that Cinderella’s Royal Table is schedule to be shut down until March 6. When things are scheduled to be closed, is it pretty accurate? Are the closures ever prolonged? My fear is to plan the trip for spring break and then not be able to do breakfast at Cindy’s castle because it’s still closed.

We are going October 6th-14th (w/Columbus Day weekend) too. I hope it isn’t too crowded then, but we will be avoiding Epcot on the weekend because of the holiday and Food and Wine. We also are going by your recommended parks for each day too. This is a great site and we have great plans because of it. Thank you!

Thanks! It so easy to follow!
?-you don’t have any refurbs for Nov but I read somewhere that the MK railroad would be down the 1st part. Is this true?
