    If you are a student late summer is a good time to go, but early december is as well. Check out Walt Disney World - A Complete Guide to Walt Disney World, there you can find what are the best times to go.

    If your biggest concern is the lines, the best time to go is Janurary, April or September.

    Jackets and sweat shirts in mornings and at night; shorts and shirts during the day. I can't wait to go. I've only been in October and have wanted to take a winter vacation for a long time. Thanks for the tips!

    We only make it down once a year, and this will be # 7
    We always try to go the last week of October or the 1st week of November. This year we are going a week early. The crowds are not bad at all, and the most I've ever waited for any ride was 15 to 20 mins if that, most we just walk right in.
    The weather is always beautiful mid 70's to low 80's during the day, and mid to upper 60's at night. and in all the time weve gone down there it's only rained twice
    so we took in a movie at Pleasure Island, and the only other time was while we were in the Great Movie Ride, we came out and everyting was soaked around us, but the sun was back out again and hot, so we missed it.

    (keeping my fingers crossed for next week)

    I definitely think early October is the best time to go. No lines, and the MNSSHP! Plus, Food and Wine.
    We are going next in February though, so I hope it is just as great.

    It totally depends on what you're looking for (i.e. good weather, short lines, best events, etc.).

    My favorite time of year to go was always this week (Columbus Day Week). The crowds are light, the weather is a little cooler, Food & Wine Festival going on at Epcot... just a nice time to go. Early spring is also great but it can be down right cold. The best events however usually bring heavier crowds.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Late Jan, early Feb is usually when I go. Nice a warm during the day but not too hot, small queues and often cheaper.

    Hah! Proof I'm used to living in the south... I think you're nuts to say it's warm during the day in Jan/Feb. We went in Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar and April the year we had passes and we were wearing sweatshirts and jeans and gloves and hats each time. LOL!!
