    Hi moms, love this panal! Planning 1st trip with DH, DS 4, and DD2. Considering last week in Feb or 1st week in May 2010, which would be better for crowds and temps/swimming? Also, POP or CBR? Thanks.

    Hi there Jessica!

    Thanks for writing.  If I had to pick between May and February, I'd vote for the first week of May, largely because I prefer more moderate temperatures.  The highs in early May tend to approach the low to mid 80s,and lows are in the mid to high 60s.  For me, these are ideal Disney temperatures!  However, I'm from the Northeast, and by early May, I've had it up to "you know where" with snow, sleet and freezing rain!  In February, highs approach the mid 70s and lows are in the low 50s.  It is possible to have a cold morning or evening in the 40s, however.  As for crowds, early May is still manageable in my experience, as most schools are still in session.  February (after the President's Day holiday) is generally less crowded than early May, but I'd still opt for the warmer weather!

    As you can imagine, I don't actually think there is a "bad" time to visit Disney World.  We actually took a trip in February a few years back, and almost walked onto some of the most popular attractions.  We also spent large stretches of time in the parks without having to take our kids back for a rest to "beat the heat!"  If light crowds are more important to you than warm weather, I'd suggest the last week in February.  If weather is at the top of your list, stick with May.

    Whenever you go, have a magical Disney trip!
