We went this time of year two years ago and it wasn't bad, only a few rides had long waits. Weather wasn't too hot either. Hubby wanted to go again in September next year instead of June but my sis in law and I don't want to take kids out of school. We went in feb back in 08 and it wasn't very crowded you have to make sure you don't go during Mari gras or Presidents' Day holiday. That's when L  More...
We went the week of dec. 4 a few years ago and there wasn't a crowd at all! It was a little chilly though. I think most rides were 10-15 minutes long. - disneyworldsbiggestfan  54.1 #89 1:41PM
Sounds HEAVENLY!!!! We are here now and I have already started saying we should come back for My little one's bday Dec 10... - brittandkell  371.3 #529 1:43PM
That would be a good time! I think we flew home on the 19th which was when it started getting busy!!! - disneyworldsbiggestfan  54.1 #89 1:44PM
We've always had great luck in very early January. Even with the marathon weekend - timonT  256.0 #26 1:59PM
The very first part of September is not busy, if you went the 2nd week, you went a week too late to experience low crowds. Β I found that only the 1st week in September is low crowds, the 2nd and after start picking up. - DizneyGirl  600.2 #8 5:26PM
I always heard jan/feb was a great time to go. My husband and I went during Memorial Day for our first trip. We didn't think it was bad at all (but it was just us 2 and we were young) :). We went the first week of December in 2009 and didn't think it was bad then either. This time we are going in January, during MLK weekend. But we will be there for 9 park days so even if the crowds are a little heavy over the weekend we have plenty of time to do it all. We are used to walk to wall people at times at DL so the crowds we experienced at WDW were never as bad. But we always use fp and don't wait in lines longer than say 20 mins or so either - brodysmommy  334.7 #627 5:36PM

We didn't have a stroller for our 4 yr old. I had planned to rent one but hubby said no she could walk. She did fine he carried her a couple times for a few minutes but she did much better than I expected. She is big for her age. Now he has already said out some who will be a couple month shy of his 4th birthday next summer on our trip will get a stroller, because he's so much smaller and does  More...
I think every kid is different. Maybe they know he or she can handle the walking? - missmimi90  1381.5 #90 4:58PM
My baby is 2 year old and he fell a sleep everyday of our 17 days in august. They can always buy a over price stroller in the park. Lol - 5disneylovers  856.0 #4 5:03PM
We bring our double and plan to for WDW in January. And we have Brody sit in it (5 1/2 will almost be 6) for a good majority of the time so then he doesn't get tired and cranky. And he doesn't mind it. Sometimes even asks to sit how when he's tired. Brooklyn will be almost 3 and her too. We plan to have them in the stroller and I'll carry Blake in my ergo (he'll be 1). It's so much easier for the kids to have a place to sit and relax and not have to always walk and get cranky and tired faster - brodysmommy  334.7 #627 12:55PM
Thank you for all the feedback. I didn't want to push my opinion if I was in the minority. I've always said your success of a day at Disney depends on the stroller. My son loves his stroller and it's always made our days easier. Especially when we're hurrying to something. He always took good naps in his stroller and he has a place for his own drink and snack. We usually bring lunch or at least snacks so we like the storage as well. I think I'll suggest she rent one on our busier/longer days - timonT  256.0 #26 2:09PM

I know it's probably frustrating , I'm very short and there were many times as a kid I couldn't get on rides , I was in 6th grade and still couldn't get on the bumper cars by myself at a local amusement park πŸ˜‚ but this is really for everyone's safety , and this rule that should be respected and followed , the time will come soon enough and he will be able to go on everything :) - tracsant  949.1 #2 5:14AM

I sure hope he hits a growth spurt though for his sake so he doesn't have to miss out. My daughter is really tall for her age so she's been riding the bigger rides for a few years. Hope your little guy is too heart broken if he can't ride. - txdisneymomma  81.7 #68 12:36PM
I would not risk my child's safety over an attraction. I saw one man arguing with a cast member when his son didn't measure tall enough for Indy in DLR. I think some parents just don't care. I felt bad for the CM and the child (he looked embarrassed). I know at least at DLR they sometimes give front of line passes to kids who want to ride but aren't tall enough so that when they return tall enough they don't have to wait in line. - missmimi90  1381.5 #90 3:54PM

I am Dwan (like Swan but with a D). People always think it's a typo and should be Dawn. I also joke no my parents made a typo. Our family friends and neighbors called me Doobie-Doobie Dwan which got shortened to Doobie-doo, they still call me this on occasion. As I got older I became Da-one and by one nephew Wan cause he couldn't get the D out. That was my nickname in his family for years. I'm   More...
Judith but mostly get Judy or Jude. My Mom called me JudyBug for years but now goes with Jude. She is 87 so she can call me what's she wants. Lol - jbzdogz  11.2 #216 7:08PM
My mums name was Elizabeth ( now my daughters middle name), she hated the way people shortened or changed it so wanted to give me a name that couldn't be shortened ( mmmm). I was christened Jean which became Jeany giraffe (?) and eventually Jeany, which has stuck through the years, lthough my mum always called me Topsy and my friends mum always called me little Tinker Bell - she still does.. So.... If anyone ever does call me Jean I always think I'm in trouble and we now have a cat called Topsy just to keep the name in the family lol!! - rink2  76.3 #74 6:30AM
I am Elizabeth named after my great grandmother, however she hated the nickname that was stuck to her so I have been Betsy since birth, I hated having a legal name different from what I was referred too unless I was in trouble or the first day of school. When I had kids they got named what we would call them, Keenan and Haley. - Betsyboo  19.4 #156 4:53AM
