    I am looking at booking trip for the week of Aug 19, 2018. Is this a busy time for Disney World? I have a 13 & 14 yr old boys

    Dear Christine,

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    The second half of August is a time of year that my family enjoys traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort because many southern schools are already back in session so the crowd levels tend to start being more manageable. That being said, it is still summer and so the crowds are still significant and it is also quite hot. You also run the risk of storms as it is hurricane season. All of that being said, we enjoy that time of year and I recommend it.

    Hope that helps with your decision-making process!
