    Trying to plan a future trip to WDW and I have been there at all different times of year but never with children, I'm trying to decide with toddlers now is March or April will be to cold I know May can sometimes be very hot?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank you very much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I visited Walt Disney World with my daughter when she was a baby and then a toddler many times.  Weather can impact little ones greatly, so you are smart to consider the weather when you go.

    I believe that it is never too cold to go to Walt Disney World!  We have been to Walt Disney World in December and in February.  My daughter's first trip as an infant was in February.  It means taking some long pants and jackets; however, I understand if you would like to head to Florida when it is warmer.

    It sounds like you are considering March, April, and May.  Of course, the weather gets warmer throughout those months.  The beginning of March can still be a bit chilly, especially in the early morning.  By the end of May, it is getting hotter; however, certainly not as hot as it would be in June, July, and August!  The average high temperature in Orlando in degrees Fahrenheit is 78 in March, 83 in April, and 88 in May.

    I do think that you should consider one other issue: crowd level.  I have always felt like the biggest driver of crowds at Walt Disney World in spring is Spring Break, which tends to peak around Easter.  Easter is on April 5 in 2015.  Given this along with the weather, a trip between mid-April and mid-May might be a good choice for nice weather and crowds that are not at their peak.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Jennifer!  Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
