    My question is when is the least crowded time to go to WDW. We normally go this week in Sept and the crowds are doable, but could still be a lot better. We went again this past May and it was unbearable. I heard spring break is a bad time to go. When is it

    Hi, Donald!  Some of the best times to go are right after children go back to school after a break.  Late August into September is usually a good time, and January, right after the New Year celebrations, is often pretty low in terms of crowds.

    If you can time a spring vacation for after the spring break crowds but before schools begin summer break in mid to late May, that's usually a good time as well.  You might also try right after Thanksgiving, leading up to the week before Christmas.

    It can be hard to keep up with school calendars from across the country, but the holidays and the middle of summer are the busiest times.  Holidays include things like Memorial Day, President's Day weekend, and other long weekends.

    I hope you find a time you love!
