And to start this post I ask you, “What is your favorite season?” For me the answer has always been the fall. Maybe it is because I am from the Northeast and we always have beautiful autumn days filled with cool crisp air and a vast array of changing leaves. However as I look at the many seasons and special events at Walt Disney World it seems that I lean towards the fall for vacationing with the my favorite mouse as well. Recently I decided to look at and figure out why I feel this way.
The first thought that popped into my head was, “Well it isn’t the foliage or the cool air, but it can be cooler!” I believe this thought has some value to it as a person who came to WDW strictly during the summer months as a kid. While I agree October temperatures can fluctuate significantly I look forward to the cooler evenings as the sun goes down. There is something relaxing in knowing that you aren’t going to roast to death from humidity in the evening.
So with that reason on my list I moved to one of the next most obvious reasons for most of us Disney fanatics, Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival (F&W). Now truthfully I was not able to experience this event until about 2 years ago on a solo trip to meet Twitter friends. For someone who enjoys eating small amounts of several things and who is brave enough to try exotic foods that aren’t going to break the bank, this is the festival to attend. I love that I can eat my way around the world and try things I would have never even known about had I not been at this festival. It is a great time to spend with friends and casually stroll without the stress of having to rush from attraction to attraction. Plus some of the acts that Disney brings to the Eat to the Beat Concert Series are reminiscent of my youth and included in admission. I feel that this is an event that all Disney fans should really get to try at least once.
And then to my final reason for enjoying fall at Walt Disney World (WDW), Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNNSHP)! So of all the holidays Halloween might be my favorite. The idea that even adults can dress up and be someone they aren’t seems to always be fun for me. At WDW the MNSSHP is like being transported back to your youth, as you can trick or trick, dress up in a costume and watch a parade and fireworks. I have been to this event twice and each time I have enjoyed myself because there are so many things to do that you can’t do on a regular basis, like meet several of the Disney villains, all 7 dwarfs and did I mention trick or treating??? It is definitely an experience that best fits the season and as a result put it on the to do list with F&W.
So how about you? What do you consider your favorite season at WDW and why? I would love to hear your opinions about the different seasons at WDW. As always you can comment below and/or feel free to tweet me on Twitter @Disneydiamondz!Share
