    In a word...Yes! Plus the weather is less brutal. Me? I love 90 with lots of humidity, but no everybody feels the same way.

    September is my favorite time to go! School has started again so the crowds are much lighter.

    In my personal opinion, the end of April til the second week of May are very good times to go. The temps aren't that bad and the crowds are very tolerable. Hardly a wait for anything.

    I have gone so far in october and during spring break and by far october was the best it's nice and cool and there really wasn't that many people there. By the way im going this year in december and was wondering how the crowds and weather are in that month.

    My favorite time of year is the week after Thanksgiving to ten days before Christmas. Crowds are light, temperatures are not just tolerable, but downright pleasant. Christmas decorations are up, guests are in a festive mood, and most attractions are up and running.

    I was going to say the exact same thing. I like the last week of April for all of the same reasons. Oh, and you can almost guarantee that you won't have rain.

    My family and I have gone in January, and plan to go again this coming January. While the weather is a little cooler during this time of year, and some of the attractions may be down for refurb, we have really enjoyed going right after the New Year. Lines are very short, the crowds are light, and there is very little humidity in the air, which are all major pluses for us.

    I've gone in January and it was great - a little chilly in the evening just need to remember to bring a sweater. I have also gone in October and March. March had quite a few spring break folks around. October was good but had shorter park hours (Jan. does too). This year we are going the week before Thanksgiving (Fri - Wed) and I am wondering just how busy it will be? Has anyone been at this time?

    Mid to late January
    The first week of February
    Mid May isn't so bad
    Mid to late September
    First week of December (although you will have to contend w/ Mousefest and Pop Warner) ... 2nd week might not be too bad either.

    I'm a huge fan of going in September. the weatehr is still great, the crowds are smaller and refurbishing hasn't usually begun yet.
