    Beatrice, I really need you help! We can't decide when to go to WDW, early Feb. or late April. What do you think? The crowds is better in one, and the weather is better in the other, not to mention the price. Thanks so much, you are a really life saver.

    Hi Maura.   You are right, I believe the primary decision comes down to would you prefer smaller crowds or warmer weather.   

    Speaking personally, I would probably choose February.   I live in Florida and while this time of year is a bit cooler than April, I generally prefer this anyway when I plan to spend lots of time walking around the Disney parks.   I am familiar with this time of year, as it falls right between my two children's birthdays and we usually visit as part of their presents.   I just love the relatively small crowds.   Plus, given the fact that you would be coming from New Jersey (my former home state!), I think you will find it warner anyway!

    The only reason I would suggest considering otherwise would be if you really want to visit the Disney water parks.   For some, February may be a bit nippy to be at a water park all day.  Hope this helps!
