    When's the best time to visit Disneyworld as far as crowds go?

    Hi Kathleen!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  To be quite honest and frank, the best time to visit Walt Disney World with respect to crowds is when older children are usually in school.  When older children are out of school, such as for holidays and during the summer, Walt Disney World is crowded!

    If you want more specifics, I recommend visiting the independent website  That's the website for the research team behind "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World'.  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar that predicts the crowd levels of the various parks on a particular day.  That should help you figure out when you might want to go, if crowds are your biggest concern.  Their predictions are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I'm a huge fan of their work!

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
