Late October, early November is my favorite time. Temps are normally warm enough without the humidity. After Thanksgiving is my second choice for the Christmas decorations.

As others have said...love LATE NIGHTS in the summer!! Also, the ability to swim/do water parks at any time without ever catching a chill! But, of course, the daytime heat in the parks leaves much to be desired! It's a bit of a trade off!

We've been in July, September, October, and December. Have to say that we liked December best because of the Christmas decorations. We are going to try May this year, though. I am excited !

December is my favorite and we've always been able to swim. Actually we were there last week and it was in the 80s! I've been in April as well and remember it raining a lot! We plan to try January of 2014 next.

Because of my work sched and I prefer low crowds, we go late August and mid to late January. Both are value season so prices are more reasonable and crowds are low.
August is not and humid, but it doesn't bother us and we get to the parks at opening, leave in the afternoon when heat builds to go back to our resort for a swim break, then go back to a park at night. Love the late hours.

January is also value season and low crowds. Sometimes there can be a cold snap, but with a few exceptions, we have had pleasant weather in 70s to low 80 afternoons and can swim. Mid day is the warmest. Early morning and evening is cool.
