    We are planning our daughter's first trip to WDW in 2012 late spring/early summer. My husband does NOT handle heat or crowds well (crazy, I know!)...Any advice for the best time between March-June for low crowds and heat? Thanks!!!

    Hi Michelle,

    If you want to visit Walt Disney World during periods of low crowds and minimal heat, you can't beat early March.  That's my favorite time to visit all year.  If you go after March 7th, your whole family will enjoy the gorgeous International Flower and Garden Festival that is celebrated each year at Epcot.

    Early May is another great time to visit.  My sister visits often at that time because she enjoys the short lines to attractions.  Since many of the schools in the nation are still in session, you can expect reasonable crowd sizes.  It will be warmer than in March but still not oppressive.

    Whenever you decide to visit, do take advantage of morning Extra Magic Hours.  You and your family will experience the shortest lines to attractions and minimal heat at these times.  Sounds like the perfect time for your husband to explore the Disney theme parks.

    I sincerely hope that your daughter's first trip to Walt Disney World is magical for all of you!
