The first two weeks of December are wonderful.....low crowds, good weather, lower rates, the whole world is decorated for the holidays and there is MVMCP. Magical!

Enjoy!

We went to DisneyWorld and Universal for 3 weeks in November in 2005 and in 2000, and it was wonderful.

Temperature was nice, but not red hot (80's) and there were virtually no queues for rides or food.

Even the most popular rides only had a 10 minute wait.

We went the first 3 weeks in November (after the hurricane season should have finished).

I'd go in November everytime!

(If I could afford it!!!).

I've been in September, October and November and November is by far the best time to go if you want to avoid queues! The weather is very pleasant to walk around the parks without feeling too hot, but is still warm enough to wear shorts etc.. September and October were both very busy times.

We've been in Jan, Feb, Mar, Sept and Nov and like Nov the best. Last year we were there the first 2 weeks and the weather was great, no bugs, no cold days. The second week (from the 12th on ) had the least amount of people and we got to go to one of Mickey's Christmas parties and also see the Osbourn Lights. It was the first time that we've been there to see all the Christmas decorations.
