When Should I Visit Walt Disney World?




     There are a lot of factors to consider when planning when to take your Walt Disney World vacation. For a lot of families, vacation dates are dictated by work and/or school schedules. Other families plan based on weather or crowds. In general, the less crowded the parks, the cheaper it will be to visit. One of the perks of travelling without children is the freedom to vacation when school is in session and crowds are lighter.

     Here are my thoughts about vacationing to Walt Disney World for each month of the year!
