    My family is beginning to plan a trip to WDW. I have a 3 yr. old and a 7yr. old. My 7 yr old has a disability When is the least busy time to visit WDW?

    Hi, Michelle!  The best times to visit Walt Disney World when crowds are likely to be lowest is right after school holidays.  When the kids start to go back at the end of August (usually the last week) and after Labor Day in September, crowds generally begin to thin out.  You'll also find that just after Thanksgiving, up until about a week before Christmas, the crowds are really manageable.

    Another good time to go is immediately after the Christmas/New Year's holidays.  Early January is usually a good time to go.  Early May also has lighter crowds.

    I hope this helps with your vacation planning!
