Here Is The Least Expensive Month To Visit Disney

Visiting Disney World can be a magical experience, but it can also do some not-so-enchanting things to your bank account.

However, it is possible to minimize the cost of a Disney vacation by sticking to certain travel dates and avoiding others. Unless you really want to pay top dollar for your holiday, you should plan on booking a trip during one particular time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

In general, the cheapest time to visit Disney World is the month of January and early February. The parks are usually quieter because families have just taken time off for the holiday season and most people don’t usually plan back-to-back vacations. Plus, starting the new year with an aching bank account due to holiday splurging means that most people aren’t looking to spend much in January.

This lower demand drives down the cost of hotels and park tickets. You can usually find Disney-area hotel rooms for up to 50 percent less in January than those same rooms would have cost in December.

So which months should you avoid? Generally, the worst time to visit Disney World is during the peak summer months. The parks can also get busy (and expensive) around Christmas and Easter.

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed a pattern – it’s most expensive to visit Disney World during a school vacation or break. Stick to the month of January and early February to get the most magic for your buck.
