    I am trying to decide on a time to visit WDW with my family. We have been there in June and August in previous years. When I was researching in the past I found a calendar of "Peak" times to visit the park. I can't seem to locate that information now?

    Hi, Andrea!  Peak times are generally the times you would think of normally.  Holidays, especially Christmas time, are peak times, and you'll find that there's a period of about 6 - 8 weeks in the spring when Easter and spring break occur.  From Memorial day until close to the end of August are also peak times. 

    If you Google Disney World peak season calendar, you'll find a good number of resources that give the specific dates.  Many websites have them.

    My favorite times of the year, if you can swing it with school schedules, is the week after Thanksgiving, the first or second week in October, and early January.  The crowds seem a bit lighter, and I find during those times I can get more last minute dining reservations.  If you don't mind the heat, the last week of August, before Labor Day, is also a great week.

    Have a wonderful time planning your next vacation!
