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 #30 6:43PM
Thanks ariel. - Bakerjars  251.6 #35 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 #18 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  544.9 #15 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 #480 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  141.8 #59 8:00PM
Horribly hot and humid, to crowded for me. If you can go another time. - Lelundrial  614.8 #324 8:07PM
January is my favorite :) - mzdisnee  558.0 #13 9:14PM
Mine too!!!  - Schramke  544.9 #15 9:36PM
Thanks guys. Not sure what we will do it was really hot last week when we were there but light crowds. - Bakerjars  251.6 #35 2:34AM
If you can go any other time except spring break and summer, do it! - justGoofin  156.2 #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 #175 4:13AM
Went in august 2001, never and I mean never again! We are going to try early June, it is slightly cooler. - DizneyGirl  889.6 #7 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 #89 7:34AM
What are thoughts on taking kids out of school - Bakerjars  251.6 #35 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  889.6 #7 8:01AM
Very hot and humid! - PixieDust76  93.4 #75 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  558.0 #13 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  251.6 #35 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 #155 8:23PM
