    We've been to wdw with 5 & 7 yr olds in may and June and it's been way too hot and most recently last December and it was pretty cold. When would be best for our next trip - april or October... As far as weather and crowds and is one time cheaper? Than

    It was cold in Orlando last December, wasn't it?  Brrrrr!  The good news is that both April and October offer visitors much warmer weather, though not as miserably so as June.  Average highs for both months are right around 85 degrees with relatively (compared to summer months) low humidity.  Crowds are a different story.  April draws significant spring break crowds to Florida, with many of them opting to visit Walt Disney World.  And because demand is slightly higher, Disney's room rates tend to climb up during the month of April, too.  Crowds and room rates are typically lower during the month of October.  Not to mention the fact that October is when Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place.  There's enough of a reason to pick October over April right there, if you ask me.  Good luck with your decision!
