    Would you recommend visiting WDW in early October or late Feb/early March? We have three daughters, ages 5, 4, and 8 months. Thanks!

    There are benefits to each time period, but my personal choice would be to visit in October.  We appreciate that time of year because we're treated to weather warm enough to enjoy water activities, but not scorching hot like the middle of the summer.  So, too, do we LOVE Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  It's a special event that takes place on select nights at the Magic Kingdom.  It features all sorts of fun activities, but the highlights are definitely the parade and fireworks show.  Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival also takes place during October and it's a tasty addition to any touring day at Epcot. 

    Late February/early March isn't necessarily a bad time to visit, either.  The weather is typically quite nice at that time of year and as long as you plan well, you'll enjoy light to moderate crowd levels.  If you opt to visit then, you'll want to avoid President's Day Weekend and early spring breakers, as crowd levels will increase substantially!
