This week we began a series focusing on the best times for families to visit theme parks. Our goal is to make your life easier by offering you the best times and seasons to explore!

We start with the Disney parks. Disney has, for decades, offered hope to guests from all walks of life with its imaginative stories, many dynamic characters, and its incredible customer service. It has locations all over the world, but its flagship parks are located in California and Florida. With over 50+ million in annual foot traffic, Disney is the most visited vacation resort in the world. Since it is often so busy, it’s important to prioritize when you visit, especially if you are traveling with someone who has a special need or disability.

So view these visit times to explore and avoid. If you want to go more in-depth, Undercover Tourist is great for detailing which parks are at high and low peak, in addition to listing out what the weather forecast might be like for those days and months.
