    Which weeks are the best time to go when it's usually a bit quieter and not so hot?

    Hi Christy! Finding that perfect time for a Walt Disney World visit is not as easy as it was years ago. Schools now have such different vacation times and mother nature certainly cannot be relied upon for accurate weather.

    But one of my favorite times for both crowds and weather is the end of January into the first two weeks of February. This is the time when the weather will usually be the coolest and the humidity the lowest so it makes walking through the parks quite comfortable. Staying away from school vacations on the calendar will provide you with the best chance at the shortest lines in the parks. January and the first part of February seem to be a bit slower then other times while the weather is cooler.

    There are many sites out there that like to predict crowds and weather. For the most part they generalize that well but you must understand there is never a sure answer for your question. If you have lots of flexibility then go for the off times and hope for the best. I never seem to have a problem having the vacation of a lifetime whether its during the busy holidays or the quieter times. Enjoy!
