    We are looking to visit in 2010 for one week. I would like to be able to use the pools but not be scorching hot. I would also like for light crowds. We are looking at 2/29-3/14 or 4/25-5/9. Can you recommend the best time? Thanks!

    Hello Susan!  The February and early March dates will be a bit cooler but all of Disney's pools are heated to 82 degrees to allow guests to enjoy swimming all year long.  The average highs at that time of year will be about 76 and the lows about 54 degrees.  As you head closer to the summer months you will start to get more humidity and heat and the average temps for the April and May dates will be highs around 85 and lows around 64 degrees.

    Predicting crowds is something I wish I could do so I could plan my own vacations for the weeks when there are no lines for any of the attractions!  However, since no-one has that crystal ball we just guess and hope.  Your first dates might be less crowded but as you head into spring break weeks this will change.  Schools are constantly changing these dates every year so its impossible to know a year ahead!  The April/May dates are generally good times as well with average crowds but again depending on school group trips and vacations this can change.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either time and for me I always choose for the cooler weather as I am not fond of heat and humidity!
