    My husband is a teacher so that leaves us only able to vacation during summer months June, July, or August. When is the best time to go to Disney World as far as weather and business of parks during the summer months?

    Hi Abby,

    Special thanks to your husband for being an educator. It's such an important job!

    A lot of people find themselves in your shoes. Many families, especially with older kids, realize that they can no longer take their children out during the year. Consequently, summer is a very busy time! Having said that, the parks are also open later, and most of the attractions, shows and fireworks are open.

    I find that early June is a good time to go. Basically, as soon as school lets out, pack your bags and get on a plane. It's not as hot as it would be in August, and you can check out Star Wars Weekends.

    By late August the crowds start thinning as kids go back to school, but it's still really hot.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
