back again and planning mode
Last time we went in Summer and it was madness, huge queues, this time we'd like to go sometime much quieter? Would December be a good time?
the first 2 weeks of December is my favourite time to go, it's usually pretty quiet during the week - we found it a bit busier at weekends especially around the festive things like the christmas lights in Hollywood Studios. The weather is much better for me to be able to enjoy the parks for longer, i can't take too much walking around in the heat. Last year it was very pleasant, tshirt and shorts in the day and sweater at night during fireworks etc. We had a couple of cloudy days when the temperature did drop and it isn't the warmest time for swimming but i guess that's a personal thing. This is traditionally one of the cheapest times to go too.
I'll second Britchick's advice. However, it has almost gotten to the point where there is no quiet time any longer.

Anytime from October through the first two weeks in December (with the exception of Thanksgiving week) is my personal favorite time to go. The humidity has lessened, and there are all the special events (depending upon the time you choose).
There are slow times, they are just not as predictable as they once were. You kind of have to "get lucky" any more.
Well I LOVE the Halloween time to go.... the decs are just gorgeous. I've done Christmas and glad I've done it but will not do it again, the queues for everything took the joy out of it, it was madness, even shopping malls were full to bursting and the parking was horrendous.

I would like to visit during October.
I've been during mid-Dec and it was crazy. Also been during the summer…again crazy. Also been during May, the early part, and it was nice. Starting to get warm though.
My most recent trip was in October and I loved it. Not nearly as hot as my July trip and not as cool as my usual Jan/Feb slot.
I didn't visit WDW (the trip was mainly villa-hunting) but I did take an evening out to see Halloween Horror Nights at Universal - boy, was that awesome!
