    We are considering taking our son to Disney World for the weekend for his 6th birthday. His birthday is Feb. 27 so we were going to choose a weekend in Feb. Do you know when, typically, the parks start getting more crowded because of spring break time?

    Hi Loren,

    A trip to Walt Disney World is such a great way to celebrate a birthday! If I were you, I would probably choose the weekend of February 22. The previous weekend likely will be pretty crowded because of the President's Day holiday, and many of the college spring breaks begin in early March.

    That is Princess Half Marathon weekend, so you may find some extra activity around Epcot, which is the starting and ending point for the half marathon on Sunday, February 23, and the 10K on February 22. But overall, I would expect manageable crowds at the parks then.

    If you want to celebrate his birthday a little early, the first two weekends of the month historically have low crowds. I've booked my family for the weekend of February 7, hoping that trend from previous years holds true.

    When you arrive, ake sure you get a free birthday button for your son from Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. It's fun to have cast members and other guests offer their greetings, and sometimes, the birthday guest gets a little extra magical surprise.

    Please let me know if I can do anything else to help. Enjoy making those magical birthday memories!
