    to DWT!

    Peak hurricane season is mid-September. End of September is a nice time of year to be at Disney World! Crowds are not bad, temperatures are cooling a little (hot instead of OMG it's hot LOL), first week of the Food & Wine festival.... and yes, the threat of hurricanes. Disney has had very good policies in the past for hurricanes - allowing you to cancel w/o penalty if a storm threatens, a discounted rate for those who have to extend their stay b/c the airport is closed, and they take good care of the Guests should they have to close the parks for a storm.

    I've been down there at that time the past two years without a problem, but did get stuck an extra day in August due to a tropical storm that closed the airport but did nothing but rain a little on WDW (poor me!).

    and I bet we all agree that a rainy day at WDW beats a sunny day at work.

    At the risk of jinxing it... even when a hurricane does hit Florida, with Orlando being as far inland as it is, it rarely sees much impact. Now two years ago there was that one that did a number on my grandmother's house and she lives just outside DtD but I'm talking generally here. Orlando is situated just right and usually if you see something, it's a day or two of rain, that moves through fairly quickly. Like V said... a rainy day at WDW beats a sunny day most everywhere else.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    We love going in september. With that said we always get trip cancellation insurance just in case. Last time I went through AMEX Travel. This year I'm searching around since I have 2 vacations (1 disney 1 nondisney) to insure for the cheapest deal.
