    Which is the best month to go to Disney World? I am planning my daughter's first trip to Disney, and I wan to know when the crowds are smallest. Thanks.

    Hi Jennifer!  Planning a trip is so much fun!  I am like you, though, I prefer going when crowd levels are low. Although I always enjoy Disney World, no matter how big the crowd!  As a general rule, you can count on crowd levels being the lowest when kids are in school and highest when they are out (spring break, summer break, and all holidays).  My favorite times to go are in February (although watch out for President's Day crowds), early March, September, October (fall breaks are starting to be a popular time though) early November and early December. 
    You can go to a non-Disney website called Touring Plans (, and they actually have crowd levels estimated for every day of the next year rated on a scale of 1-10.  I have found them to be pretty accurate.
    Enjoy planning your trip!  No matter when you go, it is always magical!
