    I have a 3yr and 7 yr old... since the 7yr old is in school it makes it difficult to plan a trip when it is more affordable... which is the Least crowded time of the year? And not so HOT! We have always went in July and to be honest it is too hot!!!

    Hey Tammy, so nice to see you planning for a Walt Disney World Vacation. According to many guide books,  one of the times the parks are least crowded is between Thanksgiving and right before Christmas. Traveling at this time might also solve your weather issue, as the temperatures are usually a bit cooler. On a personal note, the holiday time of year happens to be a my families favorite since the parks are made even more beautiful with the addition of the holiday decorations. Lastly, depending on when your 7 year olds breaks are, you should be able to plan a lovely trip for the whole group.

    Speaking of planning, Disney has a wonderful site to help you plan an affordable vacation, check out Disney affordable vacation options. Here you will find many options to help you plan and budget a great trip. I hope these help you and you family plan a magical vacation.
