    When is the best time to go to Disney World when it is not so crowded

    Welcome, Charlotte, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We moms and dads are happy that you would allow us to help you plan your Walt Disney World vacation!

    If you want to visit Disney without the crowds, look at your calendar and try to visit when you think other families wouldn't. As I'm sure you know, any major holiday, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas are always the busiest and most enchanting times of the year. Visiting on these holidays and the week of will guarantee you large crowds. However, the week before Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite time to visit. Low crowds, beautiful, cool weather, and Christmas decorations welcome you in the resorts and at the theme parks. 

    Also, consider visiting just after the holiday or during February and early March. Springs break brings big crowds, and this typically begins toward the end of March into mid-April. 

    Mid-January to mid-March, early May, early September, and early October, and early November are the best times to visit Walt Disney World without huge crowds. 

    Charlotte, I sure hope this gives you an idea when to visit the most magical place on Earth! If you have more questions, we're here to help!
