    Planning is still in very early stages, but what month would be best for 2 adults and a 3 year old.

    The last time we went was for our honeymoon in 1990 and that was in early October and it was fairly quiet which was quite nice.

    What time do you prefer and why :)

    Well you can give the school holidays a miss with a 3 year old. :D

    We went the first two weeks of December once and loved it - the parks were all done up for Christmas and the temperatures were very manageable. Not the quietest time of year to visit but it was certainly very doable.

    The other times we've been out of school holiday times is the latter half of September - very low cards but still very humid and hot with awesome thunderstorms.

    Our two favourite times to visit WDW are in April/May or September/October.
    The weather is usually a bit cooler than in the height of Summer and normally much less humid.

    I enjoy going in mid February or anytime in October.

    The temps are very nice in February (mid 70's) and the parks are pretty quiet.

    October is another great time. I little warmer than February so still good swimming weather and the parks are just as quiet.

    We like September/October the best. We have been in May, which was nice with the Flower and Garden Festival and also in July, which was hot and wet.

    When we have been with friends who have children, we have been in December which for us is a bit cool, but it is pretty seeing all the decorations :yes:

    If we are going down for the Food & Wine Festival we like the October/November time frame. If it is for Christmas then November/December. Those are our favorites.
