    Okay I can't decide if we should go in October for my daughter's 7th b-day? Or in December for Christmas?
    Here are my weeks of interest:
    (and yea I know they are so long off why am i bothering to do this so early well cause I'm a disney nut)
    October 10th~15th 2011 (MNSSHP,no school, cheapest, possible crowds)
    December 2nd~6th 2011(MVMCP school is in session and less days)
    December 12th~16th 2011(MVMCP, school's last week crowds worry?)

    :scared: Very WORRIED ANY HELP? :flower3: WILL BE GREAT:sad2:

    Good but you can still encounter some real hot weather and above avreage crowds.The early Dec. is also great you can see WDW all decked out for holidays and many great live Christmas shows.Early Dec, weather is a toss up can be real hot to very cold.I think crowds would be about the same. We have been first part of Dec. each year since 1991 and is our favorite time year to visit WDW.Crowds were small for a long time but nowthe crowds are what I would call average.Have agreat vacation no matter the time you choose to visit WDW.:goodvibes Danny

    Any of them are good, but if you haven't seen WDW decked out for the holidays, it is a real treat and not to be missed! :cool1:

    Also, December books fast, so if you decide to go then, make your reservations as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

    Oct gets my vote!

    It's my favorite time of the year to visit the World. The weather is good, crowds are lower and Food and Wine Fest makes it a perfect vacation!

    All of those dates are great opportunities. You can't go wrong. The holidays and parties are great.

    October --
    • Epcot Food and Wine Festival is going on. This may make Epcot a bit busier on Sunday, October 10th, but very little effect on weekdays.
    • October is a bit warmer, which is good if your family enjoys water parks and pools.

    December --
    • It could be cold. Don't have your hearts set on swimming every day.
    • Crowds for both periods should be negligible. (Crowds only really become serious after December 16, and reach insane levels December 25-January 2.)
    • Pop Warner Football and Cheer-leading competition at ESPN Wide World of Sports December 4-11. This has minimal effect on theme park crowds, but may have impacts select value resorts and one of the moderate resorts. (Pop Century? All Star Sports? Port Orleans Riverside? Details not released yet.)
    • Remember that parks may close earlier during the off season. If you're staying off-site and can't take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, this may be a concern.

    Definately a tough call. October with the Wine and Food Festival is great.

    However, being from a snowy place, celebrating Christmas in in Florida is fantastic.

    We have stayed at the Beach Club and every year they make a chocolate and gingerbread carousel for Chrismas. It is huge!

    Grand Floridian did a two story gingerbread house.

    Christmas trees everywhere and the castle is lit up with icicles...Osbourne Festival of Lights and DHS as well...

    My vote would be December.
