    Hi Panelists! Trying to decide what weeks in August have low crowd levels. We were hoping the third week in August would be a great time for travel. Last week just won't be possible for 2015. And what time of year has both low crowd levels AND cool weather

    Hi Natalia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  While anytime is a great time for a Walt Disney World vacation, I also try to plan our visits when the crowds seem a little lighter and it's not quite as hot. Temperatures are still fairly high in August, but the crowds do seem to thin out a bit towards the end of the month.  Most of the crowd calendars are predicting a decrease in park attendance beginning on or around August 20, 2015.  September has always been my favorite time to visit because of these reasons and because I love Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  I also visited last December and last February and although they don't have the same special events, the crowds were equally as light and the weather was much cooler.  There were days we could still swim comfortably and days we needed light jackets. December also holds another favorite event: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  It is amazing to experience the holiday joys and even "snow" falling on Main Street, U.S.A. 

    Again, there isn't a bad month to visit, but if it works with your schedules, these are a few of the times I have found to be the most magical.  If there is anything else I can assist you with, please let me know. Have a marvelous time planning your next Disney adventure! We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Pixie Dusted Wishes,
