    Crowd wise, when is better to visit, last week of Mar. into the 1st week of Apr, or the 1st /2nd weeks of June. 1st visit was in May '11 and crowds were minimal. Love the panel, y' all are always so helpful!

    Hi Janet! Figuring out the crowds at Walt Disney World is the most difficult job around and unfortunately no one has been able to make it an exact science! Each year changes and we can only guesstimate for what the numbers will be!

    Easter plays a big part of when to come to Disney in the spring. In 2014 Easter will fall on April 20 which is much later then this year. Many schools plan their spring breaks the week before or after Easter and these weeks tend to be very crowded in the parks. Prior to Easter you will find busy weeks and then weeks with a lull as schools across the country will schedule the vacations.

    March is a good month in general for weather as the temperatures and humidity have not climbed to be unbearable. You will meet showers but they are not the daily summer type that are almost guaranteed in Florida. June is much warmer and wetter but many guests prefer that kind of weather as they wish to spend a lot of time in the pools or water parks.

    The first two weeks of June tend to still be ok for crowds since most schools are just letting out for the summer. The later you come the more crowds you will find so plan as early as possible if this is the time you choose. I wish I could predict this next year.....make the best decision for you and your family knowing the weather and what you wish to do once you arrive! Have fun!
