We are trying to plan a honeymoon at Disney World. I have never been there and it just seems like it would be a lot of fun. The wedding is June 19th, but we wanted to wait until Sept to go. Is anyone else doing a Disney honeymoon, or have any advice on the best time to go?

I had a Disney World honeymoon after my first marriage. I found it to be a lot of fun; there are tons of things to do, not all of them kiddie-ish. We found the worst crowds to be in the middle of the day, so we ususally went early, came back to our room in the middle of the day to relax and hang out, and returned in the evenings when the crowds of kids died down.
I do NOT recommend going in August like we did. WAY too hot. I understand that fall is a very good time to go. The weather is still warm and the crowds are far smaller.

I think September would be fine. October is usually the big wine fest at Epcot, but there are fun things all year ’round.
My advice would be to aim to stay at one of the Disney resorts. Not sure if you know anyone with a DVC membership, but Saratoga Springs, Old Key West, and (I’ve heard) the Animal Kingdom Villas are to die for.

It’s gonna be HOT! It might take a few days for your New Englander blood to thin out! (sunburnt smiley!) I would love to do a disney-moon! Have fun!

We are going to WDW after our wedding in June. We are really just doing an Orlando honeymoon with a day at disney mixed in there. We really like Universal/Islands of Adventure so we will probably spend a day there as well. Universal is much more geared towards adults. They also have a really nice area called City Walk that you can visit for free (Emerils and Margaritaville are there).
If you have any questions let me know!
There is also a great restaurant on idrive called “Texas de Brazil” that my Fiance is really looking forward to go to. We have been before with a large group but he really wants it to be just us.

September is actually the best time to go! The lines and crowds will at there smallest.

I am doing my honeymoon there in May. I am staying at a suite which is actually a disney time share. I am hitting up Disney Magic Kingdom and MGM and then Universal and Island adventures. I have gone in September and October. September was fantastic during the day on the weekdays. Kids were just back in school I went on things like 5 times. October is cool just like someone mentioned for Epcots Wine festival.

Thanks so much for advice ladies! @caszos-Do you know anyplace there that has a swim up bar? That is on my important list:)

Old Key West and Saratoga both have bars right in their pool area. I don’t think they’re swim-up, though. If you want a really good Margarita, go to the Margarita Bar in Downtown Disney! I think it’s the 1800 Margarita that’s to die for.

I was there in June for a family vacay and it was way too hot. September is a perfect time I hear because it is less crowded due to all the young kids going back to school.
Honestly though, I didn’t like Disney World much when I went there 2 years ago. Too many lines, kids, and overpriced food that wasn’t all that good. It’s just not a relaxing place. I would have never gone there for a honeymoon, but that’s just me. I know some people absolutely love Disney and have a fun time honeymooning there.

@amariem25 – we don’t go to the parks except for one day at Epcot. I think that’s why we love it so much! You really have to hunt out the right places for food, too.

Thanks for all the posts! I’m going to Disney World for my Honeymoon, and I’m so excited! We’re going in October for the Food and Wine Festival. Can’t wait to gain 25 lbs from all the food I’ll be eating!
