    I would have to say late Nov/early Dec. The Christmas lights are wonderful and there isn't a huge crowd. You also get to see the Candlelight Processional, which is AWESOME!!!!!!

    Thanks Kyle. The crowds wouldn't be thick because of the thanksgiving/christmas season? how is the weather like that time of year?

    If you go around that time there are not as many crowds because of the Thanksgiving/Christmas pause in attendance. I go at this time every year. It is usually longpants and MAYBE light jacket weather. Although sometimes it can get pretty cool sitting, waiting on the parades and fireworks displays!

    I heard October is best, also because some kids are in School .

    That depends on your opinion of weather... I LOVE hot weather... the hotter the better. Somehow it just doesn't seem like Disney World unless I'm sweatin' buckets... haha!

    They always say the best times to go are the first couple weeks of December... and it's also pretty to see the Christmas decorations up, without the hassle of the Christmas crowds... (DON'T GO BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS!!!)

    I went down in May for the first time this past year, and it was perfect. It wasn't very crowded... and the temperature was only in the 80's... and they skies were blue every day... just absolutely perfect!

    Here is a pretty decent breakdown of all the months and their corrosponding weather/crowd levels.

    On the contrary, late August/early September is ideal. You get used to breathing liquid oxygen in just a few days, and it only takes a few hours till you form a protective sweat-shield over every inch of your skin to wall you off from the air that's hotter than your body temperature.

    But the crowds thin a bit just as operating hours are reduced at the end of summer and - much more importantly - this is the prime season for thunderstorms! The drama of the Florida skies on days when it storms is worth dealing with the high humidity and temperatures. You have artist's- rendering clouds during the day, making everything as beautiful as a painting ... and in the late afternoon, wild thunder and lightning that challenges credulity. Electrical displays that rival the fireworks. After that, dazzling rainbows and wonderful twilights.

    Best time to visit WaltDisneyWorld.

    As a family that visits at least 2x a month, I will say that we think the best time to go is either right after Thanksgiving or right after New years. It's cool, and there is hardly any crowds.

    Rainfully, Thanks for the link, Does october Also see a lack of special effects on some rides like DL does in off seasons?

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. but i've read so many different suggestions that i'm kind of torn. i'm leaning towards beginning to mid october.

    while we're on the subject, let me ask about lodging. i want to stay on property but don't want to spend an arm and a leg so i was looking at the econemy motels (pop century...etc) and was wondering what everyone thought. we'd only being doing disney during our stay so i figure we'd stay on property to avoid renting a car.

    thanks again for all the suggestions!

    A lot of people don't like the Value resorts for whatever reason, but they're great if you're on a budget! Just don't go into it expecting first class service. But I think they're very cool. That's another thing to consider... different times of the year mean different rates for rooms. Here is this years rate calendar from cheapest to most expensive:

    Value Season: 1/1 - 2/16, 8/28 - 10/4, 11/27 - 12/19
    Regular Season: 4/17 - 8/27, 10/5 - 11/26
    Peak Season: 2/17 - 4/16
    Holiday Season: 12/20 - 12/31

    For Value resorts, it's $77 a night for Value, $99 for Regular, $109 for Peak and $119 for Holiday.

    As you can see, the price per night really jumps between Value and Regular times, so if you were going in October you might want to go that first week to save as much money as you can.

    Hope this helps a little!

    Late Oct/Early Nov is the best time to go. The weather is cooler and and the chances of rain are dropped. Stay away during Late Nov-Early Jan. The crowds are bigger.
