    Just got back from WDW and am already trying to plan another trip. When is it the coolest, temperature wise, to visit? Went 3/28-4/4 and we were all sweating to death. It would be great to get cool weather and low crowds at the same time. Thanks!!

    Dawn, your question is certainly one of the hardest questions to answer and one of the most common ones we get!!!!!!!  If only we had a direct line to mother nature to know what she plans for Florida weather but all we can do is guess and hope!

    The coolest months tend to be December, January, and February with highs averaging in the mid to low 70's.  Of course these are averages and it isn't uncommon to find higher temps during visits too!  The driest months tend to be November, December, and February with an average of only about 2.3 inches of rainfall.  For low crowds I would aim for early to mid December and then again from first of January until Presidents week in February. Mid November to Thanksgiving week is also usually a lower crowd in the parks.  I wish I had the answer to the "perfect" time for a visit.  I know our family just picks a time when we can all go and we make the best of the crowds and weather and prepare for anything.  That way we still have the magical vacation we hope for!!!!
