What’s Happening Each Month at Walt Disney World

No matter what time of year you choose to vacation at Walt Disney World there is so much to do. Now this goes beyond the regular offerings found at each of the four theme parks. There’s four different festivals at Epcot, there’s countless sporting events, holiday parties, and special ticketed events. Even if you aren’t planning on participating in any of these events, they could effect which park you should visit on any given day. During our last trip, we were there to participate in runDisney’s marathon weekend. The marathon runs through Epcot on the Sunday of race weekend. This causes many of the pathways through the park to be closed to park visitors. We saw many guests upset and perturbed to have to wait to simply cross the street. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
