    when is the best time to come when it's not so busy

     Hi Malissa,

    While it is never possible to predict crowds on a given day with complete certainly, there are several times during the year that generally enjoy moderate crowds.  Historically, the second week of January through the first week of February tends to be very manageable.  The weather is often cool, however, a sweatshirt and comfy pair of walking shoes make spending the entire day in the park an absolute pleasure!  Late summer (after the Labor Day holiday) through the beginning of the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot also usually has very reasonable crowds.  Finally, the week after Thanksgiving through the week before Christmas is a great, low-crowd time period.  In fact, this last week is one of my absolute favorites, because the parks and resorts are all "decked out" in their holiday best, and there are several wonderful special events such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom and The Candlelight Processional at Epcot that you can enjoy with your family.

    Whenever you chose to book your Disney vacation, have a magical trip!
