    We are planning our first trip to WDW. The only time we can come due to conflicting schedules is of course in the summer (June or July). When would you suggest is the best time out of these two months? Will it be unbearably hot or crowded? Thanks!!


    ANY time you are in Disney is a good time! 

    I would try to come in June if at all possible, and the earlier in the month the better.  This will help you as far as crowds and heat both.  That said, I have traveled in June before and was very concerned about it, and was pleasantly surprised.  It was neither as hot nor as crowded as I had feared, and we had a great vacation.

    Because this is your first trip, I recommend that you consider a service like  This website will allow you to purchase a customized touring plan that suits your families' needs, and allows you to see and do all that you want to take in on your trip.  I've not found this to be necessary in the off-season, but for peak visitation periods and very brief vacations it can be an excellent tool.

    No matter which month you come in, I'd recommend investing in some handheld battery powered fans (I bought mine at a chain store for about $1).  They are wonderful!
