    Hi, What time of year is the least expensive to visit Disney in Florida? We would like to stay on Disney or as close as possible. Also, we have mixed age kids ranging from newborn, 3years old, 13, 14, and 18. Thank you!

    HI Lisa!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation is perfect for a family with a lot of different ages because most of the attractions at Walt Disney World were designed with the whole family in mind.  I know that might sound strange if your only experience is with regional amusement parks, but it is true.  There are only a few attractions with a height requirement and if there is no height requirement then everybody can ride.

    With regards to when Disney is least expensive, Disney is least expensive generally when it is least crowded.  Disney is generally crowded whenever older children are typically out of school in the United States, making school holidays and summer a crowded time of year to visit.  To help you understand when and how prices change, I suggest visiting the independent website  There you can easily see the changes throughout the year by looking at the hotel rack rates.  While at MouseSavers, be sure to look at their other money saving tips and ideas.  MouseSavers is one of the first sites I go to when planning my own Disney vacation.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
