Well . . . it's getting close to the time where I need to set a date to go home to WDW. We have again considered over winter break, which in 2013 would be December 22nd through about January 1st. I've kept my eye on the crowd levels and wait times and I sadly have to say I just don't think I can do it :( I'd love to see all the holiday lights again (it's been a long time), but we are spoiled going in September. We are thinking we should quit taking the kids out of school and now that I work for the school that's another problem :( This leaves us with winter break, spring break (done before, won't again) and summertime. I think we'd enjoy going for Star Wars weekends, my 10 year old daughter LOVES Star Wars . . . . so I'm thinking the last week of May into the first week of June (but we'd probably wait until 2014 for this). How many of you have been during this time and what do you think? Advice, etc?

Aww sorry your not doing the holiday, I wish I could. I have been leading into Memorial Day weekend and it was fun. It also is a very busy time but so much fun. We would go the week before to try and catch the flower garden festival also. You'll get to see the reminants of it. Have fun planning - mmddgp  1316.4 #5 8:02AM
I have seen the flower festival, love it! Star wars weekends is somethingI haven't. In about 13 years I can go anytime :-D - DizneyGirl  1151.4 #8 8:31AM
I think we are going end of feb into March so we can catch spring training, flower garden festival( oz theme) and mardi gras at universal - mmddgp  1316.4 #5 8:39AM
That'd be awesome! - DizneyGirl  1151.4 #8 8:55AM
Go late Nov, early Dec, we loved it!! All the decor, no crowds!! - mrsincredible  1380.4 #4 9:35AM
We love September, no crowds, but we can't keep taking the kiddos out of school, our 10 year old is getting too old, not going to have her miss middle school. - DizneyGirl  1151.4 #8 10:38AM
😒 That's why we chose early June, the only time of the year crowds aren't too bad and kids are out of school. - mrsincredible  1380.4 #4 12:12PM
For next trip, I mean. - mrsincredible  1380.4 #4 12:12PM
Let me know how the first week of June works out for you! - justGoofin  165.7 #57 1:49PM
We've always gone the last weekend of Star Wars Weekend and it was great, not too busy (for Disney) and warm for swimming but cool enough to enjoy long days at parks! - ariel116  103.7 #71 9:57AM
Glad to hear it. I've looked up the weather and it seems fairly similar to when we go in September, maybe even a bit cooler :) Glad to hear you like going then. - DizneyGirl  1151.4 #8 10:39AM
Same boat here. Don't want to pull kids out of school, but can't beat the deals Disney has in Sept. or Oct. Can't stand it to be to crowded you can't move. - purplelooney  10.7 #245 11:06AM
I've been three times to Star Wars weekend and its really not as terrible as you'd imagine, except at the park with the Star Wars events. I can tell you more details, if you want to ask me about it. - ally  509.0 #18 12:27PM
Just txt me with your email and I'll write some info. - ally  509.0 #18 12:34PM
We went for the 2nd week of SWW this year. It was also our first trip to Disney. I was crowded but not too crowded and hot but tolerable. My youngest son LOVES Star Wars. The 2 days we spent at HS were his favorite part of our 9 day trip. - nightmaresally  10.7 #246 1:05PM
We have gone to WDW twice the last weekend of Star Wars weekend. We left right after school on their last day of the school year. We went 10+ days both times. HS is busy because of Star Wars weekend, but everything else was ok. It didn't get crowded until The weekend after. I think half the schools got out a week after us. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #650 2:47PM
This would be our plan - DizneyGirl  1151.4 #8 3:32PM
My husband and I went in late may, right before the Star Wars weekend started. They were getting ready for it. We thought the crowds were very manageable but it did seem to get busy the last day or so with the Star Wars starting. But depending on how long you go maybe if you squeeze in a few days before or after to have lighter crowds that could work - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 3:42PM
Sorry. We go in August because I hate the cold. I want to be able to use the pools. It's a great end of summer vacation threat for the kiddos. - 5disneylovers  1254.3 #7 6:10PM
Hehe, I am the opposite. I do not like the heat and August is to taxing on me. Looking forward to going back in December. - Lelundrial  817.9 #249 7:14PM
