What is REALLY the best time to visit?

In general in my online reading (think little articles titled the best time to visit Disneyland) I kept reading what a great month October was to visit. Low crowds, nice weather. Great! I thought. We had a long weekend off school that month and thought it was a great time to visit. Except when I started to read people's reports and posts about their actual Oct trip, it seemed woefully crowded. Like, people compared it to summer crowds. The weekend we were hoping to go for was the worst. Evidently our school break coincides with the school break in UT and people from UT flood Disneyland that weekend.

So now it's back to the drawing board. What is a good month/time to visit? We've been spoiled with low crowds our last couple DW Visits, plus I'll have a 2 year old, so I really would like a time with lower crowds. We're looking at next fall/winter. We don't start school until the Thurs after Labor Day, so we could go the very end of Aug/beginning of Sept. Otherwise Nov? Jan? Appreciate any thoughts people have. I feel like I read a lot of conflicting info on DL sometimes. Finding it harder to plan than my DW trips.... there's no Josh posting a walkaround every day or anything! I've never been a big fan of touring plans, but I may have to subscribe because I hadn't found any other good (Free) sites with DL info, unless I'm just missing it! Thanks!
