    Previously I have only gone to WDW during the summer when school was out. Since I just graduated college I am open for the off season. Comparing smaller crowds and better discounts what month is the best time to go?

    Hi Ricky,

    Congratulations on your achievement!  I think Walt Disney World would be the perfect place to celebrate!

    In my experience, I have found that January and September have the lowest crowd levels of the year.  I have been fortunate to find discounts during both of these months.  If weather is at all a factor, it is worth noting that January can be relatively cold.  I've had visits during January when we have worn hats and mittens, and other times shorts and t-shirts.  In September it is pretty common to simply have hot and humid weather.

    Hope this helps, happy planning!
