    We have been to Disney many times--summer, early fall, and Halloween time. We are now looking at late Jan/early Feb or May 20-25. In your opinion, which time would be better? I'm concerned about cooler weather in Feb. and getting my restaurants booked.


    In my opinion, your May dates offer you more options at Disney, simply because of the warmer weather.  You didn't mention which resort you're at, but almost every pool on Disney property is a draw, and to enjoy them to the fullest, the warmer month of May may be a good fit.  If you're trying to make a decision based on crowds, though, January/February may be the answer you're looking for as long as you avoid the MLK and President's Day holiday weekends.

    But the tie-breaker may come down to restaurant reservation availability.  Disney just switched their dining reservation window for guests from 90 days out to 180 days out to make a reservation.  January will be here before you know it and your May dates might ensure some seatings at some of the more popular restaurants!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
