    My family and I are taking our first trip to disney in 2016. What is the best time too visit? We'd love to go when crowds are moderate, nothing too crazy.

    Hi Lauren,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and congrats on planning your first trip.

    In general, the parks are more crowded when kids are out of school for vacations (including the summers). Before my kids were in school, we really enjoyed visiting in early May. The temperatures are generally not too hot, and the crowd levels are moderate. Early fall is also a nice time to visit, especially if you can take advantage of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. If you do visit in the fall, consider getting tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    Regardless of when you visit, be sure to make dining and FastPass+ reservations as soon as you can, so that you maximize your time in the parks.

    Have a great vacation!
