    Were planning a trip to WD between June,July and August what is the best time to go? I think that is a busy season but is August less busy than June?! Also which month is typically hottest? Thanks in advance

    Hi there, Melanie!

    You are wise to think all of these details out now; while there is no getting around the summer high travel season in Florida - and at Walt Disney World in particular - there are definitely ways to maximize your experience.

    August, the least crowded of the months - particularly starting in the second week of the month - is also the most humid of the three summer months.

    Certainly visiting rates are dropping during this time, as people prepare to return to the schedules of fall, but you might find the weather to be more humid during this month than the two preceding. The trade-off, of course, is that your wait times are somewhat shorter, and your odds of getting that coveted dining reservation may increase.

    Happy planning!

    See you later, celebrator,
