Disney World in September

Disney World in September

September is a great time to visit Disney World plus it also typically the start of free Disney Dining plan promotion. The temperatures are still a little warm but the crowds are low. The best part is you can enjoy the low crowds and still get to experience Halloween time at Disney World as well as Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. The following are some more things to expect at Disney World in September.


The Weather in Disney During September

September is the 4th hottest month, with the average temperature being 87 degrees and 4th wettest month with five inches of rainfall on average. As expected coming off of the summer months it begins as a rainy and hot month and ends much cooler and drier.

Just as in the summer months it’s a good idea to dress in light colors and wear comfortable shoes. Since the temperatures are hovering right below the 90s we recommend bringing a small portable fan. Due to rain being commonplace in this month I bring a poncho for each person and a stroller cover.


Disney Events in September

Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival

The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is an event held every fall here at Walt Disney World. The festival includes food booths, special events, chef demos, and live concerts! This year the event runs from August 31 – November 13, 2017. For more information read our Guide to Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival and Epcot Food and Wine Festival Food Booths.

 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party starts earlier than ever this year, with party dates going from the End of August to the first of November. This is my favorite events of the year at Disney World and I highly recommend it to everyone who has never had a chance to experience it before. For a more in-depth look read Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Guide.  If you are already planning on going and looking for some costume ideas read Disney Costume DIY for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, DIY Make your own Russell and Kevin Costume from UP, and Awesome Disney Kids Halloween Costume Ideas.
