    Late September Disney Trip

    I am headed to WDW at the end of September for a week. We will be there for the 40-hour live show, the start of Food & Wine, and hopefully a MNSSHP night. How busy is it likely to be crowd-wise? I went at the beginning of September once and it was wonderfully dead. Any thoughts?

    Probably similar to your last Septemebr trip, assuming no hurricanes. Bes to make sure Mike Scopa is not going that week to avoid bad weather.

    My husband and I went late September for our honeymoon, granted it was 6 years ago but it was prefect. I get sick to my stomach in extreme humidity and I was comfortable. It was warm enough for tanks and shorts but manageable. We are taking our girls the last week of September

    Maybe we will see you there if you go to Lou's 40-hour show or Food & Wine walkabout.

    I went last year at the end of September and there were moderate crowds. The average wait for major attractions was about 20 minutes. A few cast members told me it was crowded for that time of the year because it was the end of free dining.

    Either way, the weather was so nice I didn't mind the moderate waits, and the free dining was ofcourse a perk!

    I was there last September and it was wonderful!

    The crowds weren't too big and the average wait time for a ride was 20-30 minutes for the E-ticket rides. There weren't any problems seeing shows or the parades.

    I'd still recommend ADR's for any restaurants you want to dine in or it could be a 45-60 minute wait (we had that for Sci-Fi Dine in Theatre).

    Have fun, I'd say it's a brilliant time to go.

    We went September last year and worst wait time (not including Toy Story Mania) was 20 minutes. Most days it was 5 to 10 minute wait for most rides. Toy Story Mania was 2 hour wait.. we opted out!

    I saw a wait of 3 1/2hours for Toy Story Mania and the Fast Passes would be gone in less than half an hour. We had a magical experience when a cast member gave us two Fast Passes as a congratulations as we had our Bride and Groom Mickey ears on. Wonderful!!
