    When would you reccommend planning a WDW vacation, for myself and my boyfriend, between these 3 times 1. End of August/Beginning of September 2. Right before Christmas (Dec.14 ish) 3. Right after Christmas (Dec 27ish)

    Hi Amy!

         In my opinion, anytime is a great time for a vacation to Walt Disney World!  That being said there definitly are times of year that are less crowded and may be less expensive per night to stay on property.  I will give you my opinion and experience for the three times that you suggested in your question.

    1.  The end of August to the beginning of September: This would be my number one pick because the summer crowds are over and it is considered Value Season so the Resort per night rates are typically reduced compared to the rest of the year.  The only downside to going during this time is that it can be very hot and humid with daily afternoon thunderstorms.

    2.  Right before Christmas: This is another great time to vacation in Walt Disney World.  Typically from the week after Thanksgiving to around December 17th the crowds are lower and you have all the wonderful Holiday decorations to look at.  There are also lots of Holiday attractions, events, and parties too.

    3.  Right after Christmas: This would be my third choice because one of the busiest times in Walt Disney World is between Christmas and New Years Day.  If you choose to vacation during this time, then I would recommend having a strategy for the Park that you are in or a touring plan to save time so you are able to ride more rides per day.

    I hope that whatever date that you choose for your Walt Disney World vacation that it is a wonderful and magical time!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
