    We want to bring our girls (7&5) to WDW for the 1st time next March. The week we can come is the week before Easter. Is this a bad time to come? We want to come when the weather is cooler, and this seems like our best opportunity.

    Hi Jessica!

    In terms of the weather, I think that is a great time to visit though it can still be a little too warm and humid on some days.  In terms of the crowds, it is one of the busiest times at Walt Disney World.  If you want to come when there will probably be fewer people, you should consider coming over President Day's Weekend in March.

    However, even in March you can successfully navigate the crowds!  I suggest visiting the independent website  That is the website for the research team behind the tour book "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 in the parks on various days.  More important than that, however, are their touring plans that are basically step by step instructions on how to tour the parks to minimize your wait in lines.  Their recommendations are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I am a huge fan of their work.  Definitely check it out.

    Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
