    When is the best time to visit? Came last time at the end of june/early july was a little busy lol. Is there a slow time where everything is still open and not so busy? Thanks so much.

    Hello, Crystal!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    You certainly did visit during a most busy time of year.  Hopefully, you still experienced many MAGICAL moments during your vacation because it sounds like you cannot wait to get back here.

    There are three great times throughout the year that you will experience low crowd levels in the parks.  The week after New Year's Day and up until the week prior to President's Day in February tend to reveal low crowd levels. Another great time period is the first full week after Thanksgiving through mid-December.  You will want to avoid the "20s" come December.  The week following Labor Day up until the week prior to Thanksgiving is a great time to visit, too.  Historically, these have been the patterns, but they are always subject to change.  However, I think you're safe if you choose anything during these time periods.

    There are never any guarantees that all attractions will be up and running.  Even during busy times of the year, you will find some attractions closed due to renovations.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
