January to mid-February

With most school kids heading back to their classrooms, Disney world can be experienced in an affordable way during the period Jan. 2-Feb. 12, 2014
As schools reopen in August in Florida, the summer value season that lasts from Aug. 3-Sept. 12, 2014 will help you get yourself some good money-saving opportunities — if your kids happen to fall in a different school calendar. A caveat: As Disney World tends to get too hot in summers, it’s imperative to find a hotel with impressive pool facilities and plan you trips to the park early or late in the day.
