We’ve traveled to WDW in every month but April. Our favorite times are October-November and early May, though it has mostly been summer trips lately. And we were able to take a late February trip this year and that was very enjoyable. I just always worry about snowstorms that time of year in our neck of the woods.

Mid-November through Christmas; I love Disney best when Christmas festivities are in full swing.

Either around February or Christmas time! During the beginning of the new year, usually the lines aren't long at all and not many people there, but the spirit of Christmas at disney is unbelieveable

We've been during Sept, Nov, Dec, Jan, March and April - hard to pick one. We liked them each for different reasons. Late Jan was great crowds and weather wise. Shorts and tees daytime and shorts and hoodies nighttime.

We like mid-May and mid-September, so we can hit the Flower & Garden and Food & Wine.

I like the May weather better than September though.

Only been the end of January, but would be fine basically going anytime between mid September to mid May avoiding the week between Christmas and New Years and most of March and April depending on when Easter falls since that is when the rest of the country has spring breaks spread out. We haven't had one in my area since the 2001-2002 school year instead someone came up with the bright idea to do an early out day every other week in the middle of the week usually on a Wednesday so you can't even plan a trip to some place that might be 6-8 hours drive away because you can take off work early and leave when the kids get out of school before 1 and still get there in time to get everyone to bed at a decent time. No instead it's rush to figure out child care for the parents. Not me though since we homeschool but we try to avoid traveling in the summer except for a week every 3 years when we have a family reunion as that is prime overtime for my husband.

Early December because it's the cheapest DVC season and the parks are decorated for the holidays. We've been going for the last 13 years at that time.

The end of the summer is the best time. Not so hot, and good ending of holidays

I like January for the weather. I'm not a fan of very hot or humid conditions.
