The kid's last day is June 3rd. They go back the third Monday of August.
Thank you both so much, just want to plan my days around it as i know it will more than likely be very busy. The School holidays over here are from late July Till The Begginning of Sept.
I would go the last week of August or the in September (trying to avoid Labor Day). Our schools in Northern US, go back around Labor Day but most do not travel right before school starts and they stick close to home for labor day picnics.
LondonDolphin Lover, in 2007 my husband and I were in Orlando from August 18th - Sept 1st and found the parks to be really uncrowded. By getting to the parks early and using fastpass, we only had to queue once or twice (and that was when there was a problem with the ride). I think a lot of the school kids have gone back (or are getting ready to go back) to school at that stage.
For next year, we have booked August 22nd-Sept 5th, so I'm hoping that will be even more quiet. Don't forget though, this is prime hurricane season in Orlando, so it's a bit of a gamble foing at this time!
We've been in late August and yes - the crowds are pretty light. The only downsides are that, even if there are no hurricanes, you're likely to encounter some heavy rain, although that can happen at any time of year so I guess it's not too much of a consideration.
The other thing is that, as soon as the American kids go back to school, Disney starts to wind down a bit - certain rides will close for refurb and parades, etc may not happen every day, so you need to get hold of a weekly schedule and plan which parks to visit on which day.
Thanks for the replies, looks like we will have a busy time when we go, We are going 27th June till 11th July 09, counting down the weeks and cannot w8. This will be our 2nd time To Florida n Disney, our 1st time was End Sep 07 and everything was great, Especially the weather and the parks were about as full as any UK theme parks. 28 + 1/2 weeks to go. YAY!!! Wendy x
