Is it less expensive to Go to Disney World in January versus December?

Hello, Disney enthusiasts! It's Judy from Twin Palms World Travel, and today, I'm addressing a common question: Is it less expensive to visit Disney World in January compared to December?

Spoiler alert: Yes, it is, and here's why!

A Tale of Two Months

I recently conducted a little experiment. I compared the cost of a Disney World vacation for the same duration, at the same resort, and for the same number of people, first for a week in December and then for a week in January.

The findings were eye-opening: the trip in January was a whopping $2,000 less expensive!

Why the Price Difference?

December is one of the busiest times at Disney World. With the holiday season in full swing, the parks are not only crowded but also at peak pricing. Hotels, flights, and even park tickets often come with a premium price tag due to the high demand.

January, on the other hand, is a different story. After the holiday rush, the crowds thin out, and so do the prices. It's part of what we in the travel industry refer to as the 'value season.' Lower demand means more competitive pricing, making it an ideal time for budget-conscious travelers.

Benefits of a January Visit

Apart from the obvious cost savings, visiting Disney World in January has other perks:

  1. Fewer Crowds: Post-holiday, the parks are less crowded. This means shorter lines and a more relaxed experience.

  2. Pleasant Weather: Florida's weather in January is typically mild and comfortable - perfect for exploring the parks.

  3. Post-Holiday Deals: You might find special deals and offers during this time, adding extra value to your trip.

Is January the Best Time for You?

While January offers significant savings, it's essential to consider what you want from your Disney experience. If holiday-themed attractions are a must-see for you, December's festive atmosphere is unparalleled. However, for those looking for a more budget-friendly, laid-back vacation, January is an excellent choice.
