One of the most asked questions we get as Authorized Disney Vacation Planners is
“When is the best time to go to Disney?”
Our answer is and will always be— it’s ALWAYS a great time to go to Disney! Yes, even in the Summer!
For many families, the easiest time to travel is during school breaks, particularly Summer. If
you’re not used to the warmer (read: HOT) climate, it can be quite an adjustment. If we’re being
honest— even if you are used to the warmer weather, it’s still an adjustment!
As your resident Disney experts, we have a few tips we with our clients traveling during the
summer months to ensure their trip is 100% Magical!
#1: Be Strategic With FastPasses
When choosing which rides to use Fast Passes, consider if you’ll be waiting indoors or
outdoors. If indoors, schedule those rides for the hottest times of the day, for a nice break.
Outdoor rides should be scheduled for early morning or late evening, once it’s starting to cool down.
#2: Lots of Resort Time
Remember, this is your VACATION! We know you want to see and do everything. While Disney
World trips are usually GO GO GO, it will be more pleasant by taking a long break midday. Head
to the park at rope drop and stay for a few hours. Then, head back to the resort for a day at the
pool and a great nap. Head back to the parks during the evening hours!
Trust us on this one. It will help you avoid some (not all!) major meltdowns if you plan some
down time for your family while you’re there. Especially if you have young children!
#3: Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon
Did you forget that Disney has actual water parks? So many families forget about these great
add-ons right on Disney property! With special events, like the H2O Glow Night Parties, happening during Incredible Summer, it’s the perfect time to explore all that Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon have to offer.
