    I would like to visit when the weather is just right. About how would it be in April, May And August? And which month has the fewer crowd? Thanks in advance.

    Melanie, it is funny to know when the weather is just right at Walt Disney World as some prefer it to be cold and others prefer it to be hotter then ever!

    The average temperatures and rainfall for the times you mentioned are as follows:
    April: 60-83 degrees, 2.4 inches rainfall
    May: 66-88 degrees, 3.7 inches rainfall
    August: 73-90 degrees, 5.8 inches rainfall

    These are just averages and Florida weather changes constantly.  I have been there in May when they had record rains for a week straight.  In May the humidity really starts to build and by August even if the temperature is in the 90's it can feel like a 100!  The summer months will have the almost daily afternoon shower or storm so you need to be prepared for that.  Of the three months you mentioned my choice would be April!

    Crowds vary as much as the weather. If you plan a late August vacation it will be the least crowded as kids are back in school. Early in the month can still see long lines at the attractions.  April crowds will depend on the Easter holiday. This year it is the first weekend of April and the week before and after that will be heavy. Later in the month it will slow down and be more average.  May can see a small buildup for the school groups coming at the end of the school year but the crowds are manageable and not bad until you get to the Memorial Day weekend.

    Tough choosing....good luck with the decision!
