Can you even BELIEVE it’s already the end of September?! It feels like just the other day we were gearing up for EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival or the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

But, it is true, there’s only about 3 months of the year left, so is everyone heading to Disney World for some festive fun? We did see decent crowds at the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but the wait times haven’t been that bad in recent weeks. The only way you can skip most ride lines in Disney World is to buy Disney Genie+ for $15, so let’s take a look at the wait times from this past week to see if you’ll want to make that purchase if you’re going to Disney World soon!
