If I’m forced to choose days to visit Walt Disney World in the next year, for a variety of reasons both qualitative and quantitative, I wouldn’t select January or February 2023, against that backdrop and with that bias.

I’m not sure those months will be as difficult as this year has been, but they’ll still be too unpredictable. I anticipate that things will get a little slower by then, but there are other factors to consider: international travel, snowbirds heading south, runDisney, youth sports events, and so on. I think there’s a decent possibility that winter isn’t going to be the drowsy off-season it used to be, and Disney hasn’t yet adjusted prices to respond to the new normal of increased demand during those months.
