Mom And Daughter Resort Room

    Kathryn from TX Asked

    My husband of almost 42 years and I will be returning to WDW next year. We would like to make this visit when it is best to avoid the largest crowds/children. We also want to stay in a very nice, large, quiet room on the Monorail. Any suggestions?

    Hi, Kathryn!  What an inspiration you are to be married for nearly 42 years!  I have 22 years in with my husband, and am grateful for every day we get to spend together!

    The best times to go and avoid crowds are usually right after school holidays.  If you don't mind the heat, the last week of August or the first week after Labor Day in September are pretty low crowd times.  Another good time is right after New Year's, when everyone goes home after Christmas break. 

    You can sometimes find lower crowds starting the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, but people are catching on to that magical time.  All of the holiday festivities are taking place then, so people like yourselves, who don't have to worry about school, are starting to go this particular time.  You might also find the first week in May is pretty good, too.

    My favorite monorail resort is the Grand Floridian.  The Sago Cay section is closest to the convention area, and often times, this area is filled with adults attending conventions - meaning lighter on children.  Avoid Big Pine Key, though.  It's pretty close to the pool and beach, so it can be busy with families in that area.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
