This year, Value Season 2 at Disney World runs 8/5/12 through 9/27/12. Unbelievably, we were fortunate enough to visit WDW during both “Value Season 2” and the first Value Season of the year (which ran 1/2/12 – 2/15/12). The resort prices and crowds were slightly higher on our August trip than during our January trip, but significantly better than when we’ve been in late June.
Which Value Season did we prefer? We loved them both! We’re such Disney nuts in this family, we’d go absolutely any time of year. Of course, the weather was milder in January. On the other hand, it’s way more relaxing for a family to travel during summer so we don’t have to worry about catching up on schoolwork.
Are you a Value Season visitor? If so, which one do you prefer – January or August?
