The third week of August? Too hot, too crowded? As you all know we just got back five days ago and i need a plan for next trip.

From what I know still hot and crowded! - Ariel42  262.9 #35 6:43PM
Thanks ariel. - Bakerjars  252.7 #37 7:16PM
I usually go in August & it is really hot, humid & crowded. I've been at other times of the year & I've found (at least fir me) the best times are Jan, May & Oct. I'm planning for my next trip & trying to get something together for May or June. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 7:21PM
I don't know if you can but if schedules allow it I would try to go around a different time. Aug is very hot and very crowded! - Schramke  682.9 #12 7:23PM
I went the third week of August this year! I had so much fun, but yes very hot and humid and crowded! My friends and I found that we got exhausted easier because of the heat. Maybe try for another time, but in the end either way you are at Disney! - LonghornGirl  4.6 #483 7:43PM
We like to go right after labor day day but before the beginning of October. The crowds are not as bad and it's usually cooler - this year it was hot!! - toogrumpy  142.4 #61 8:00PM
Horribly hot and humid, to crowded for me. If you can go another time. - Lelundrial  711.1 #282 8:07PM
January is my favorite :) - mzdisnee  568.7 #15 9:14PM
Mine too!!!  - Schramke  682.9 #12 9:36PM
Thanks guys. Not sure what we will do it was really hot last week when we were there but light crowds. - Bakerjars  252.7 #37 2:34AM
If you can go any other time except spring break and summer, do it! - justGoofin  162.3 #56 3:48AM
We've been going in the summer the last several trips out of necessity because our kids are older. We still have a great time but we've learned how to work around the deadly heat & the crowds. I would say that, while your kids are still young enough to go during the school year, stick to that so you can enjoy the milder temps & lighter crowds. - SueBoo  18.6 #179 4:13AM
Went in august 2001, never and I mean never again! We are going to try early June, it is slightly cooler. - DizneyGirl  967.5 #8 5:37AM
When my husband was a kid his parent took him and his brother in august. They all hated how hot and crowded it was. And when we have our first meeting to plan our family trips my mom-in-law always says the summer is not an option. We love early to mid Nov or early to mid Dec. I am a fall lover and we are partial to Christmas time at wdw. But whatever works for you and your family is the way to go!! - Jazdaz88  66.1 #92 7:34AM
What are thoughts on taking kids out of school - Bakerjars  252.7 #37 7:46AM
For us, what grade they are in matters. For example I wouldn't take a child out of high school and prob not junior high. We have used labor day weekend to our advantage the past few years. My 3rd grader has that monday and tuesday off, so she only misses 3 days. Next year we are going over winter break because my littlest will be going into kindergarten and I wouldn't want her to miss the 2nd week of school her very first year. so, after all that, it really is what works best for you and how your school feels about it, some would frown on a kids missing a whole week to go on vacation. maybe consider the 1st week in june it'll be cooler and less crowded than august. - DizneyGirl  967.5 #8 8:01AM
Very hot and humid! - PixieDust76  93.4 #77 10:32AM
We took our kids out Jan 2009 for our first trip. I am a teacher and parent. Looking at it from both sides, family vacation is more important. My kids got their work (kinder and 3rd) and did if while we were gone. Don't feel guilty :) - mzdisnee  568.7 #15 11:12AM
Love you guys you are always so helpful. That's what I thought about temps was hoping someone would disagree. I like the idea of labor day. We are also limited with my job because I have to spend some major holidays with my work family. - Bakerjars  252.7 #37 7:49PM
We took our 6 year old daughter the 2nd week in september and it was great! She did her school work on the plane. Also crowds were really low. No more than 20 minute waits and most were just walk-ons. Also we got to do the Halloween party which was awesome. Florida is just too hot for us in the summer. I'm from the south, but I can't imagine doing Epcot in that extreme heat. - Cydsmom  23.1 #158 8:23PM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105844 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6436.2 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127453 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3566 1:02PM
Ours is blank too with no plans anytime soon. That's why I come to ☺️☺️☺️ - DisneyMom13  311.8 #874 7:30PM
