    I am a single parent planning our 1st trip to WDW with my 6 yr old son in Feb-Mar 2012 & am overwhelmed with the info available on websites. Which wks during Feb-Mar will have lowest crowds & best prices? Which rides/attractions r must see for a 6

    Wow, congratulations on planning your first trip. It's going to be so much fun. I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to answer your questions. Initially, predicting crowd levels can be tricky. Traditionally mid-February provides fairly low crowd levels. Moreover, with Easter falling on April 08, 2012, Spring Break will fall later in the year, which translates to lighter crowds until then. With respect to finding the best prices, I always start with a trip over to As for must-see attractions, let's start with the Magic Kingdom, since it is such a wonderful place for a 6 year old to begin to experience the magic.  Tomorrowland has some can't miss attractions including Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and the awesome Space Mountain. In Adventureland the Jungle Cruise will take you on a wild journey that spans the globe. Frontierland brings the thrills of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, while Liberty Square has the chills of the Haunted Mansion both of which should not be missed. Taking a flight in the skies above Fantasyland on Dumbo the Flying Elephant will be an experience you will not soon forget. There are so many wonderful memories waiting for you and your son at Walt Disney World and I am happy to provide you additional information to make this trip even more special.
