    Trying to decide on 2012 trip to WDW in Feb. vs March. In Feb I will have to take kids out of school but here crowds are much less crowded. In March the kids are on spring break but are the crowds bad? Also, which is better weather wise? Any suggestions?

    Hi Misty!

    If you don't mind taking your children out of school, then definitely go in February.  The weather is much better and the crowds are significantly smaller!  February is when my family usually goes to Walt Disney World; it's a perfect winter break.

    Basically, Walt Disney World is least crowded when children are in school.  When children are out of school, it is much more crowded in all of the theme parks, restaurants, hotels, etc.  Spring Break is a particular crowded time of year for the resort.

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
