I personally prefer going in November/December. The weather can be a little cooler but the last two trips during this time have been upper 70's to 80 every day and the crowds have been great. All of the pools on property are heated but the air was a little brisk for me to want to really swim. But then again, I am not at WDW to swim so I will take the Holiday Decorations, Low Crowds and No Humidity any day of the week.

Hey-no picking on YOOPERS!!! We live on Superior....it isn't that cold !

They just announced Negaunee with 43" of snow right now!

We are arriving at WDW on Halloween for 3 nights. We'll be getting off our Disney cruise that morning! Hoping for warm weather and low crowds!

I love early November and we have always been able to have pool time, but not overly hot.

We've gone twice in mid-November and found it warm enough for shorts/capris and for swimming. It's easy to swim in a heated pool in 75-80 degree Florida temps when you are used to swimming in Michigan lakes and rivers in 80 degree weather.

I'd suggest late April, with late Oct as a 2nd choice. When we lived in FL, it was usually about the middle of Oct. when it would finally not feel so hot and humid outside. By the first or 2nd week of May, those oppressively hot summer temps. would begin again.

It seems like April would be very comfortable still, but getting hot enough for swimming. You would get to look forward to it after the long winter in the U.P.

We were at WDW this past April, the 29th thru May 5th. It was very hot and humid to the point it was uncomfortable. i think it was 89 degrees each day. We were going through a ton of bottled water. I think late October might be better weather wise.

Thanks everyone, late October or late April looks to be the best. Since Easter is late in 2014, we may shoot for this Oct. I've only been in summer (nothing like changing your bra three times a day when you've sweated constantly, yuck) or January, when we froze to death, so I'm looking forward to decent temps!

Lowest crowds possible taking into account the above

I know that leaves out winter, holidays and summer, but when would be nicest fall/spring?

TIA!

Early to mid October (avoid Columbus Day weekend). The weather is awesome and the crowds are usually not too bad. You also get the bonus of the Halloween decorations and events.

I debated spring and fall. I bypassed fall because I've had bad luck with October weather (at the beach in FL, not WDW) and I also was nervous about hurricane season. We went first week of May last year and I was very happy with that time of year. The crowds were definitely manageable, I loved Flower & Garden show (which I didn't think I'd really care about) and it was good swimming weather, which was a requirement for me. There was one day that I was really hot (at AK). I also picked that time of year over the fall because I personally am more appreciative of warm, "swimming" weather in the spring versus in the fall when I just had a whole summer of warm weather. But that could just be me.

We went in early Feb this year. Weather was AWESOME. Shorts and tee's, but no sweating, or humidity at all. Nights - threw on a fleece over the tee and was fine. Loved it!

No way; temps then are still in the 90s with full humidity. The best weather/crowd combinations we've found (avoiding holiday periods), were the months of November and late March thru April. We tried the second week of May last year, and it was waaaay too hot by then. Good luck!

That is funny because we were also there April 28 - May 5, 2012 and we thought the weather could not be more perfect! There was 1 day, I want to say it was May 4, that was HOT but all the other days were nice and warm and perfection!

I've done last week Sept (2012) and first week Oct (2008) and I preferred first week in May (2011). Crowds and weather were manageable (until the last day). That trip in 2008 was really hot and humid and really crowded for what I thought would be an off week...

Sweaty ****ies- i know what you mean-ugh!
I actually wear a bikini top rather than a bra now.

However,I would much rather have heat than the cold.
I currently have chillblains on my toes and feet,and they're very sore.
