We are looking at a possible DL trip in the future. When is the "best" time to go. Low crowds :) We have school age kids, but aren't worried about them missing school.

We've been to WDW several time (leaving in 24 days) but this is our first DL trip...and I understand it's a whole different "land" or World - :rotfl2:

It doesn't. Some find find out too late the downsides - and then come here to vent. :cool2:

You are doing the right thing by asking now before you are locked in to a date.:) Check out these threads and hopefully they will help you make the right choice for you:

Have a magical trip! :wizard:

Yes, I like them. Great weather. A mix of low crowds, and long hours. Halloween party possible that could let you see the two best firework shows.
