    Hi moms just wondering im traveling january 25th- feb 1st and im having a lil trouble reserving dining is this a good time of year to visit meaning will it have light crowds ?

    Hi Emily,

    The end of January and early February (before President's Day) is a great time to travel to Disney World, as you should find some of the lightest crowds during this time.  I took my kids almost the same exact dates last year and we had no problem with waits.  While it's impossible to predict exact crowd levels, you should have very manageable crowds during your stay.  Regarding your dining "dilemmas", even during the lightest seasons, the most popular restaurants (Chef Mickey's, Cinderella's Royal Table, etc.) book up quickly in advance.  However, if your heart is set on a particular place, I would check in with the podium on the day you are interested.  I have found it easier to get a table as a "walk-in" (albeit with a wait) during the value season at Disney.

    Have a wonderful trip!
