Best Time of Year to Travel with Seniors

Every year on the news we hear about senior citizens who have succumbed to heat and ended up hospitalized or worse.

With that in mind, do you think Seniors in need take heat into consideration when scheduling their vacations? When do you think the best time of year to travel would be for a senior couple looking to make a trip? What about seniors that are traveling with their grand kids?

My Mom hates heat, and she loves the week AFTER Thanksgiving in November into December. The weather is just down right perfect. If it gets cold at night... all you need is a light jackets. Even a hoodie is sometimes too warm... lol

ya i agree the fall is the best and the slow weeks with the grand kids so they don't get anxious waiting around for rides

Fall is by far my favorite time at WDW.

When are temps best in the spring? It was lovely when I was there in late February. Anyone know when heat really starts to set in?

It's really unpredictable, unfortunately. Some years, our springs are gorgeous and long - warm, but cooling off nicely in the evening. Other years, blistering temps can start as early as March. This year, spring was amazing (and winter was EXTREMELY mild - we barely had any cold snaps.) It's really, really hard to plan beyond generalities, I'm afraid.

I have gone to WDW the first 2 weeks in February for many years and find it a GREAT time to be there.
There are very few lines for any attraction, there are no big crowds anywhere, the weather is nice--usually in the mid 60s to mid 70s, AND the hotel is the cheapest of any other time of the year!!

I think I'd go for October/November, it's still warm but not in the 'I'm meeeeelting' way and the crowds are pretty low! I love how the parks are decorated at this time of year too, Halloween into Christmas! awesome awesome
