We just ordered next year's edition (pre-ordered from Amazon) and really looking forward to getting our hands on it! So much has happened in WDW since we were last there I need new info and maps. You guys and girls are the best for reliable info to help us plan for our next foray into the " magic " that is WDW.
We are trying to surprise our DS so it's all hush hush at the moment
We are already booked for Dec 8th thru the 15th 2013 with my kids and their families and I would love these passporters for the kids for christmas.
Could you tell me how reliable the information is?
like the number 1 week out of 52 to visit is the week we are going-- is that so true??
The information in our books and on this web site is always as reliable as available, though there's no way to know in October 2012 everything that may be different 14 months into the future.
But if you're asking whether the week of December 8th-15th 2013 is the "best" week of the year at Disney? We do not rank weeks (or days) numerically (1 through 52, for example). Another web site or book may do that, but it's not something we're likely to do. That week is indeed one of the best times to go, in many people's opinion. Holiday festivities are in full swing, lodging rates are fairly low, and crowds are no worse than moderate. But if the ranking was based on low crowds alone, that week wouldn't be anywhere close to "best." There are weeks in September, January, and February that are more likely to win that award. Similarly, the lodging rates that week are no longer the lowest of the year. If weather is a factor in the rankings... it's not likely to be warm during the evenings (and may not be warm during the days). So, "#1" has to depend on what you value most, and whether your schedule even allows a visit on a particular week.
