    First time to WDW Florida... In your opinion , what is the best time to visit.? Our choices are the first week of June or the week of Thanksgiving... Kids ages 9 and 12 ... Thx

    Hi Misty,

    I hope you enjoy your first trip to the Walt Disney World Resorts! 

    Given the two weeks, I would recommend the first week in June over Thanksgiving week. This will be a less crowded week and you will be able to do more and experience more than during Thanksgiving. I would never recommend Thanksgiving or Christmas week for first time guests as these are extremely busy and you will spend more time waiting then touring.

    An additional bonus of June if you are a Star Wars fan, Star Wars weekend at Disney's Hollywood Studios will provide some additional fun.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
