    hello moms panel..i hope everyone is well....i plan on making my 3rd trip to wdw this summer aug 25-31 which is also my bday week are there large crowds during that time of year? and if so how would u recommend handling that? as i want my bday to be specia

    Aw, Shayna you're so sweet! I'm well and so appreciate you asking! I'm also excited for your birthday trip! We have gone at the end of August for the past few years. As it can be a slower time of year, Disney often offers great promotions like free dining, which can make it busier. We have never found it unmanageable though.

    The August heat is hot, so we usually try to get to the parks right a opening. I recommend taking a break mid-day when the sun is hottest, and returning to the parks in the evening. An afternoon by your resort pool is the perfect way to re-energize! Also be sure to use the Fast Passes. This will really cut down on your wait time.

    And be sure to get (and wear!) a Happy Birthday! button on your special day! You'll love all the birthday wished you get!

    Write back with any other questions Shayna! Wishing you the most magical birthday!
