    when is the best time to go, almost the cheapest time to go?

    Hi Luis,

    The least expensive times of year to visit Walt Disney World tend to be during "value seasons," which generally coincide with weeks when crowds are the most moderate.  The "best" time of year to visit the parks is quite subjective, and varies from family to family depending upon a variety of factors including:  budget, school vacations, ability to take time off from work, and interest in a particular special event that the parks are hosting (such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, The International Flower and Garden Festival and International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot).

    If travelling to Walt Disney World when both crowds and package prices are moderate, then visiting during a value season is a great choice.  Historically, the lowest crowds can be found in September, after Labor Day Weekend, early December (the first two weeks) and January (except for Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend and Marathon weekend).  The most crowded (peak) times of year to travel include the week between Christmas and New Year's, mid-June through mid-August (the summer months), and Easter Week (Spring Break time).

    Throughout the year, Disney offers a variety of special packages and promotions, which have included options such as free dining, additional free nights and significant room discounts.  If you are interested in a particular week, I recommend speaking to a Cast Member at (407) W-DISNEY regarding what special offers are available for the time(s) you are considering.

    Good luck planning your Disney trip!
