    We want to start planning our first trip to DW, but not sure what month would be better? We want to go during the months of June, July or early Aug 2010. Do you prefer one month over the other? Kids are 7 and 2. Thank you!

    Hi Maria,

    Summer is a busy time at Walt Disney World as many families take advantage of school vacations.  I find that early June is the best time to plan a summer Disney vacation.  Since a lot of schools are still in session during the first week of June, the crowd levels aren't quite as high as they are later in the month.  Also, the weather is not as relentlessly hot as it is in July or August.

    Another fun thing about traveling in June is Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  If anyone in your party is a Star Wars fan, this even is definitely not to be missed!

    Hope this helps.
