    Planning our first trip from australia 2 chn 7 and 9 with a disability looking at 2 weeks in april or may 2011 can you give advise on best time for low crowds:) and accomadation options thinking of wilderness resort


    All the way from Australia, WOW!  That's quite a journey.  I'm thinking that May will be less crowded than April.  April is still a time when many schools in the states get a week long vacation, so families tend to take advantage of the time off from school and vacation in Walt Disney World.  Easter also falls in April this year, so that weekend will be particularly crowded.

    May usually has moderate crowd levels and the weather is beautiful.  You'll want to avoid the last weekend in May, Memorial Day weekend, as that will be quite crowded as well.

    Wilderness Lodge is a great resort!  The only other option I might recommend for your family would be the Polynesian.  The rooms there will give you more space.  In fact, each room can accommodate 5; your kids could have their own bed which might be a plus.  I know it would be in our family.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
