    Planning a trip this summer between last week in may and 2nd week in august. what is the best time to come during this time based on price and crowds? i know this time is crowded no matter what but what is the best week to go?

    Hello my fellow Georgian!!!

    We usually take a Walt Disney World Vacation during the summer months so I have some good experiences to draw from on this question.

    The best time to go varies if you are looking at price vs. crowds.  If you are more concerned with price, I would definitely recommend going the 2nd week of August.  The room rates drop significantly after the first week of August, based on the rest of the summer.  If you are more concerned with the crowd levels I would recommend going in the month of June.  A lot of school systems around the country don't get out of school until mid June, so this is definitely the more desirable time to go for lower crowds.  Plus, the later you go into June, July, and August, the hotter it will be, so I didn't know if you need to factor that into your planning!!

    I hope this helps with your Disney Vacation planning and that you have a magical trip!!!
