Walt Disney World, known as the happiest place on earth , is an adventure to gift the little ones with options to see Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, and all the favourite Disney Characters. Taking off to Walt Disney World is a magical experience but requires lots of planning. This is where Tovell Travel can give you some advice on how to experience and enjoy the happiest place on earth.

When traveling with children, most parents opt to visit Walt Disney World when children are not in school such as March Break, Christmas or Summertime. This is however, the busiest and most expensive time of year to visit. Nonetheless, if you chose this time, it would be essential to begin planning your family vacation at least 6 months in advance as prices do surge and hotels sell out very quickly. When booking accommodation, I would recommend giving your children one of the most memorable experiences by staying onsite with Disney Resorts and reserving a luxury villa. They have lots to offer such as treehouses and waterfronts.

Although Walt Disney World is always a busy place, there are many different off-peak times you can visit where the crowds are smaller and there is better opportunity to enjoy more of the parks.


Orlando can experience a lot of rain during the Caribbean’s “Hurricane Season” which is typically June 1st to November 30th. The weather can be warmer and quite enjoyable even during the rainy season and the rain can make for it’s own fun and unique experience. When was the last time that you went Dancing in the Rain?

Mid-September to December on weekdays are known to be less crowded. There is an open secret that going to Walt Disney World after New Years Day and before Presidents Day, is less expensive and is another time you can have a lot of the park to yourself. If you would like your budget to stretch into luxury end accommodations, transportation, unique cuisines, and private entertainment, going during off-peak times will make your trip an unforgettable experience, rain or shine.

If you travel in the month of October, be sure to book tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This not-so-scary night, will have both children and adults, enjoying an evening of spirited fun during this spook-tacular celebration. Dress up, collect candy, and enjoy a wickedly wild fireworks display featuring some of your favourite Disney Characters. Halloween at Disney is not to be missed and promises fun for everyone.




And if you decide to celebrate your Christmas Holidays in Walt Disney, be sure to purchase tickets to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The main parks will close during these hours and only guests with exclusive tickets will enjoy the Magic Kingdom. With a Christmas Parade featuring Mickey Mouse and Santa Clause, a celebration filled with Disney Characters, dozens of iconic attractions for you to enjoy, and special holiday treats and eats, you will not be disappointed and it will be a Christmas to remember.


A season not to be missed is during, EPCOT's International Festival of the Arts, Garden, and Flower, which runs from the spring to early summer and is quite a pleasant time to visit Walt Disney World. Particularly for the adults in the family who are looking for a more unique experience, where you can indulge in workshops, processions, and art shows. EPCOT's festivals are perfectly situated between the March break madness, the summer rush and before the rainy season.




The Fast Passes allow you to skip to the front of the line, regardless of the time of year that you travel. By scheduling up to 3 of your favourite rides or experience, you can explore other areas of the park and meet your other favourite Disney Characters. Once you have used your 3 scheduled times for the day, you can pick once experience at a time after that, again allowing you skip the lines and enjoy more of the park.

When traveling to Disney, be sure to include the Memory Maker as part of your experience. It is a digital PhotoPass that allows you immediate access to digital photos and videos taken by the on-staff photographers throughout the parks. The PhotoPass photographers will take your photos in front of iconic Disney Castles, Rides, and Characters and if you’re lucky, you can even catch and chat with some of your favourite Disney Characters.


Whether you choose to go to Walt Disney World during high season or low season, the key to a pleasurable time is to plan in advance. Walt Disney World has the extraordinary experience each family member will appreciate, and Tovell Travel takes pride in ensuring everyone going leaves with memories that will last forever.
