    Was taking my sister to wdw as a grad gift in june/july, but it looks like it might just turn into one big family vacation. So excited! Thinking about 1st or 2nd week of august now bc I've heard it's cheaper/ less crowded. Is this true? Thanks!

    Big family vacations at Disney are the best, Amanda; I'm super excited for you guys!  What you've heard about August being a great time to visit to take advantage of lower crowd levels and steeper discounts is partially true.  The latter part of August does offer guests lower crowds and some really great promotions and special offers.  Unfortunately, though, the same can't necessarily be said about early August.  Crowds don't really tend to lighten until kids head back to school and so early August travelers don't really experience that benefit.  If you really want to avoid crowds and take advantage of great savings, you should hold off your trip until the last week of August.  I hope that helps in your planning.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
