    We are planning a vacation and are trying to decide between two dates: March 7-14 or May 16-23. We have three children 9,7,&3 years old. We are concerned about crowds and weather because they want to visit a water park. What date would you recommen

    Hi Traci!

    Crowds and weather are always a big concern in my family as well.  With the options you listed, I would recommend the May dates.

    Although the weather is typically beautiful in March, the crowd levels tend to increase due to schools having their spring breaks during that time period.

    From my experience, the crowd levels in May tend to be lower, and the weather better, which will be important if you're hoping to visit a water park.  You'll also have the added opportunity of experiencing the International Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot  which runs through the end of May.  My kids have always been amazed by the detailed topiaries they have on display during this time.

    Good luck with your decision!
