    Any advice on coming to the Parks later in the day? We are coming to WDW this summer (June) and I'm worried about the crowds (we usually go in May or October). My husband thinks it will be better to wait until noon to hit the parks. Advice?

    Hello to another GA Mom!  Actually, I think the parks get more crowded as the day goes on.  Many people do not like to be on the bus or Monorail at 7 AM, so I have always found it better to get there early and hit the attractions that are most popular first.
    Then as the crowds begin to increase around lunchtime, you can start taking advantage of the fast passes or go back to the resort and relax by the pool for a little while.  Also remember, if you are not a big parade watcher, go ride while everyone else is watching the parade.  Attraction lines are definitely smaller when the parade is headed down Main Street.
    Thanks for the great question, and I hope you and your family have a wonderful time in June!  I'll be there then too ... working the crowds just like you.
