    I am trying to plan our 2nd family trip to WDW. We will be traveling with 6 1/2 yr old and a 1 1/2 yr old. I am trying to decide when is the best week to go either March 31, 2014-April 05, 2014 or September 14, 2014-September 20, 2014.

    Hello Kasey!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom´s Panel.

    Walt Disney World is a wonderful place to travel with young kids and you are considering two great weeks to visit.

    Arriving on March 31, just after spring break, you will probably experience awesome weather, moderate crowds and Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

    On the other hand, September is a hot and humid season, with the probability of hurricanes.  Still, this is probably the lowest season at Walt Disney World and you can expect really low crowds.  Also, at this time you can expect some of the best special offers of the year.
    My family´s first Walt Disney World vacation was during the month of September and with the travel insurance, all my worries were gone.  We had a perfect vacation and really enjoyed Mickey´s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    Either week will be an awesome family experience.

    Remember that Advance Dining Reservations can be made with up to 180 days before your vacation.

    Services like PhotoPass + can add lots of magic to your vacation, especially when used with selected Disney Character Meals.
    If planning on Character and Signature Restaurants, I suggest considering a Disney Dining Plan - especially the Deluxe Plan.

    By planning a year ahead you will be able to design a wonderful vacation for your family.

    Glad to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
