    Best time of year?

    My family and i debate this every year-when do you think is the best time of year to visit?

    Dad says Christmas for all the decorations, I think September (still nice and hot but quieter) although i do love Halloween, mum says January to beat post holiday blues...

    Re: Best time of year?

    My last four trips have been the first two weeks of December as I LOVE the decorations, Xmas merch, MVMCP, crowd levels, and temperature....although last December it was VERY cold!!!

    Next year we'll be visiting in October, my very first Food and Wine, and MNSSHP!!!!!

    I've been told September by many people, so that's when our first trip will be. September next year that is!

    We are going for the whole month (we're so greedy!)
    Imagine if we end up standing next to each other in a queue or something weird like that! (I'm usually acting like a giant child with an autograph book lol)

    Look out for the Aussie just standing there with her mouth open in awe!
    I plan on getting my photo taken with every character I can find!

    Me and my husband alway go in October because the weather is nice and there are not too many people. Also the beginning of January is great because it is cool but not cold and most of the holiday rush has left.

    Def. during the Food & Wine Festival, although we have enjoyed the Holiday Season as well. We have noticed the crowds were particularly smaller in January, March, and Septmeber, so we also like to try and go during those months as well.
