When I was growing up, my family and I would make the long 9 hour trek to Disneyland during the spring or fall seasons nearly once per year. We never went there during the summer due to the fact that standing in line for a ride is not quite as much fun as the ride itself.
Now that I am married (no younglings of my own) I haven't been to the Magic Kingdom in several years. I read Mice Age and Mice Chat quite frequently and every time I see something new, it gets me excited to see it in person.
I'm planning on taking my wife on our anniversary in late September (the 25th to be precise). I'm hoping that this will be a good time to go due to it being less crowded, but I'll miss out on some of the activities that are only around during the busier summer months.
What is your favorite time to visit the parks and why?
