    My family and I are planning a trip to Disney in 2017. When are some of the best times to go considering crowds and weather?

    Hi, Emily!

    Visiting Disney at any time of the year is just magical! 

    However, I know that fighting the crowds is no fun! 

    The busiest times of year are during the Christmas and New Year holidays, the end of March and first of April, when schools are out for Spring Break, and of course during the summer months, June-August. Labor Day weekend can also be a very busy time for the Walt Disney Resorts and theme parks. 

    My most favorite time of year to visit is mid-late November. During this period of the year, the weather is cool, leaving behind the sweltering weather, the crowds are pretty small, and best of all the Christmas decorations are up! A few years back my family and visit the week before Thanksgiving and was very pleased with the crowd levels! 

    During the least busy times, you may find that ticket and resort accommodations may be less expensive, as well!

    Emily, I hope this help to make planning your Disney getaway a little easier for you!
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy planning,
