    Hi, we are trying to plan a family trip may 17-24 or oct 5-12 but we can decided witch week will be less crowed? We went at spring brake last year and it was not fun for a first timer! Any suggestions?

    Hello, Meredith!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your first Walt Disney World experience.  Spring Break is a very busy time of year and the crowds are heavy.  However, I am so excited that you are planning to visit again and I hope the crowds will be most agreeable with your next visit.

    You have selected two great times to visit.  Historically, October always has very low crowd levels while May usually falls under the moderate crowd level range.  Of course, crowd levels can change year-to-year, but I am confident that the trend will continue this year, too.  Personally, I enjoy visiting Walt Disney World during the fall months.  The sights are BOOtiful and sounds are simply SPOOKtacular!  Should you choose to visit during the month of October, I highly recommend attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This is one party you and your family will not want to miss.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
