    Keeping in mind, weather, crowds and budgets(deals) is it better to come to WDW, the first week of December, End of January, or around Valentines's Day?? I have a 3 yr old and 7 month old. Thank you so much for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Tracie,

    My personal preference would be to visit in January, followed by the first week of December and then Valentine's Day.

    January - possibly our favorite month to visit.  Weather still allows for shorts and swimming during the day, layers for cool evenings.  Very low crowds (lowest early in the month and getting progressively busier), very short waits for rides, easier to secure dining reservations.  And it's so fun to leave the snow and cold and go to Florida!

    December - the biggest perk of this month is all the beautiful Christmas decorations!  (Be sure to visit the deluxe resorts as well as the theme parks!)  Crowds are lower as well, and again it's usually warm enough for shorts but cool enough that it isn't uncomfortable.

    Valentine's Day - much busier than the other two options.  Weather would still be great, but crowds levels are increasing.  They are still lower than most of the year so this is still a great time to visit for sure, but out of the three options it would be the busiest week and therefore my last choice.

    Good luck with your decision, and have a great vacation!
