I know, I know! It's not even summer yet! But, I have to tell you, now is the perfect time to plan your Fall getaway. Get the jump on choosing the perfect resort. Secure those dining reservations before they are all gone. Plan out those Fast Passes. And, have something amazing to look forward to once summer is just a memory. So, here are my Top Five reasons why YOU should plan a trip to Walt Disney World for this Fall!!
Starting with #5: Better weather.
It's no secret that Florida can be super hot and sticky in the summer. That's why a late fall trip (mid-October thru December) makes so much sense! It's still sunny and pretty, but less hot and humid. Which means, you can tour longer and see so much more before the little ones poop out.
There's nothing like seeing Magic Kingdom decked out for the holidays!! I love the Halloween decorations, with pumpkins, scarecrows, and fall leaves galore. And, when the Christmas decorations come out, and Cinderella's Castle drips with icicle lights, it's truly magical! See for yourself!!
#3: Fun Festivals to enjoy at EPCOT.
Starting with EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival in August and going right into EPCOT Festival of the Holidays, there's always a fun atmosphere at EPCOT. Snack on seasonal treats, enjoy the music at the Eat to the Beat concerts during Food & Wine, or hear stories from around the world about celebrating holidays during the Festival of the Holidays.
Magic Kingdom hosts two amazing parties over the Fall months. We kick things off with Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, featuring trick or treating, special character meets, a special parade and stage show and, this year, a brand new fireworks show! Then, in early November, guests can enjoy Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Special treats, a parade, character meets and special fireworks highlight the event. It even snows on Main Street USA!!
#1: Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening
The Number One reason to visit this Fall is a biggie!! Fans have waited a long, long time to step foot into the galaxy far, far away: Star Wars! Starting August 29, at Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios, dreams will come true! Yes, it will be crowded, but I trust Disney to find a way to manage the crowds. And, with a good plan, I am confident anyone can have an excellent experience. (HINT: get some expert help from a qualified Vacation Specialist who specializes in Disney destinations. They have the inside scoop and their services won't cost you anything extra.)
