    We had an awesome time at Disneyworld last August. We want to do it again next August(2014). When is the best time to book our trip? We stayed at the contemporary and would like to stay there again. Thanks.

    Hi Opal!

         My son and I love to go to Walt Disney World in August! We have been there together in August four times already in the last few years.  The crowds start to get less during the third and fourth weeks of August because colleges are back in session and grade schools in some of the States are beginning as well. I would definitely recommend booking your vacation in the last two weeks of August because it is considered a Value Season where room rates are often less expense per night.  I will warn you that Walt Disney World can be quite hot, usually between 85 to 100 degrees F and humid during the whole month of August, so you need to plan to do inside attractions or shows where there is air conditioning during the hottest parts of the day.  Also there usually is an afternoon thunderstorm everyday in August, so make sure to pack your umbrellas or rain ponchos .

    I hope that your August vacation in Walt Disney World is truly magical for you!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
