    Is August 16-23 a good time to travel? Family of 4 with 2 small kids. thx

    Hi Ketal!

    As long as you can handle the weather elements, I think it's a pretty good time to go.  Crowds tend to lessen mid to late August as families with school children start to head back to school.  As far as the weather, you can expect it to be hot, humid with a passing afternoon thunderstorm almost guaranteed in the afternoon. 

    Another bonus to visiting in the time you are suggesting is Disney currently has a free dining promotion available.  You can read about that promotion here.

    Please let us know if you have any other specific questions.  Diane  :)
