    Hi there! When would be a better time to visit, November 6-14, 2009 or May 1-9, 2010. My children really want to go to the water parks but I am worried if we go in May that the lines for the parks will be longer. Thank you

    Hi, Tami!  The November weather can be a little bit unpredictable.  When I lived in Orlando, our first November was so cold, we had to have my mom ship us down the winter coats I left in Jersey, thinking I wouldn't need them until I came home at Christmas!  The next year, we kept our pool open until January!

    Early May, after spring break, is really a pretty good time to visit Walt Disney World.  With Easter being on April 4th next year, by that first week of May, everyone is back in school and the parks are pretty stress free.  You may find shorter lines, warm weather, and beautiful days in the water parks!

    If I had to choose the November week or the May week, I would definitely choose May. 

    Have a great time whenever you go!
