    We went to WDW in Feb09 and it was SUPER CROWDED. The lines were over an hour long everywhere we went,which is hard with little ones. We are planing a trip for Oct09. How will the crowds compare? Would the end of Sept be better? Is there a cost difference?

    Hey Jessica and I hear you.  I have been every month out of the year, and I am personally convinced that President's Day Weekend / Valentine's Day is the most crowded I have ever seen.  You really have to work those crowds and take advantage of those fast passes.
    With that said, I have found October a great time of year to go because the weather begins to cool a bit.  You could still run into crowds due to MNSSHP but I do believe it to be better than February.  September normally has less crowds, but free dining is being offered during this time in '09, and it's still rather warm, if you don't like the heat.  Either September or October are great months, and I don't think you will go wrong with either one.
    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel, and best of luck on planning you next WDW trip.
