    we are planing our first disney trip. when is the best time to go when it is not crazy crowded and hot......

    Hi Raven! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    Hooray for a first visit to the most magical place on earth! I hope this visit is filled with magical memories, tons of pixie dust, and memories that you will cherish for yEARs to come!

    Raven, rule of thumb is that whenever there are major holidays and school breaks, attendance peaks. But if you can visit during off season, you’ll have a better chance of visiting with lighter crowds. There are several helpful crowd calendars you can search online for that can help give you an idea of crowd predictions. Just remember, there is no perfect science to this and these sites are simply guessing based on past trends.

    As far as weather, spring and fall are lovely in central Florida! As a Florida resident, I would recommend a visit any time from November through April for mild weather, with a few cold snaps in the early months of the year, if you enjoy chilly evenings and mornings. 

    I hope this information was helpful! If you have any more questions or would like some pixie-dusted planning tips, be sure to stop by and see us again soon.

    Wishing you a magical day,

    Emille ºoº
