    both of these times are average attendance meaning there will be lines some of them long. the last week of feb the average hi temps will be in the mid 70's and lows in the mid 50"s last week of april will see hi temps of mid 80's and lows in the low 60's. i like april better than feb but it all depends on what you feel more comfortable with;)

    We did the last week of April this year and the weather was great. Crowds weren't too bad. I would vote for April. Good luck and have fun!

    Our daughter and son in law went last Spring Break and vowed to never attend during a school break time again. (she is a teacher) they totally fought the crowds for everything they did and are not willing to experience the same again.

    Went this past March 2-9. Very good time to go, IMHO. Crowds were moderate, but bearable. Just make sure you take advantage of EMH. Went to morning EMH at Epcot one day. In and out of there by 1 p.m. Weather was pretty good, too. Rained one evening. I will never to to WDW in the summer again.

    If you think you will want to swim - go in April. If not, I think end of Feb would be better, personally.

    Before we had kids, we would go to Disney and wonder why anyone would go to Disney and waste time swimming. Now we have kids and we use the resort pools:rotfl2:

    Hi there. I guess I am an idiot because I still can not figure out how to start a new thread so I just respond on other threads. This website is so confusing to me and I am usually not that computer illiterate. Any advice in this area would be apppreicated.

    Anyhow, we are planning a trip to WDW Augues 16th through 20th. This is because my husband is having a conference there and our room (Downtown Disney Hilton) will be free. This was such a wonderful surprise right after our trip in March. I am concerned however because of the heat and the crowds. My main concern though is...this will be the last weekend before Orlando school start, on August 20th. SO, will that increase attendance or decrease it because people are getting ready to go back to school.

    Thanks in advance for any information or advice you can give me. Due to my newfound obsession with Disney I think this board is perfect for me. i have already learned so much.

    I would pick the last week of April. There will be a significant difference in the weather. Personally, I like it warmer. It can be still jacket weather in Feb/March. I think the crowds won't be a factor, not too much of a difference.
