    Hello, We are just trying to figure out when is the best time to take our first Disney Vacation. The weeks we are looking at are Feb 4-11, Mar 4-11, or Apr 8-15. What week would be the best for least crowds and best weather? Thanks!

    Hi Andrea!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    If 2013 is anything like recent previous years then the dates in March will be significantly more crowded than the dates in February or April.  Your February and April dates should be about the same crowd-wise.  I think most people would prefer April over February as February can sometimes still be cool and even cold.  However, February is when my family usually goes to Walt Disney World.  We love the cooler weather and it is generally much warmer than the weather at our home in Maryland making for a nice winter break.

    I hope this helps!  Good luck with your decision,and please write back with more questions!
