    I am trying to figure out the perfect time to go to WDW. I want this to be perfect. My choices of going is February, March or May. I don't want big crowds but want the experience everything including the water parks. Help please.

    Hi Diana!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    If you are talking about perfect weather for your requirements at Walt Disney World, I can give you the average high/low temperatures for each month:  February 74/51 (average rainfall 2.3 inches) ; March 79/56 (average rainfall 3.5 inches);  May 88/66 (average rainfall 3.7 inches).  I have visited several times during May and the temperature has always been very warm, and definitely good for experiencing the water parks.  Weather-wise May is the month I would choose, out of the three months, as during the early months of the year the weather can be variable and perhaps may not be warm enough for water activities. 

    The crowd patterns are typically as follows:  Low crowds through the first week of February, excluding Marathon Weekend.  Average crowds (plenty of people around, but lines still manageable) - 2nd week February until Presidents week, and the end of February.  Also May has average crowds.
    Crowds can be high during Presidents' week, Marathon Weekend, and 3rd week of March to end of April.

    If you have any other questions that would help you make your decision, please come back and ask me - I would be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
