    My parents and I are taking my son who will be 8 months old to WDW sometime durning the last week in August through the first week in Septermber. Will this be a busy time? Should I be concerned about the heat and my little one?

    According to Disney's calendar, you've chosen a great time to visit as far as crowd levels go.  My family typically vacations at Disney World during the month of September and we don't find the crowds to be overwhelming at all.  The heat is another story though.  August and September are still very warm months in Orlando and the humidity makes it worse.  The temperatures are definitely bearable though if you go prepared for the heat.  Be sure to bring sunscreen, a hat, and a covered stroller for your baby to protect him from the sun.  You might also find it helpful to purchase one of those battery-operated fans mounted on the top of a spray bottle.  We find those to be great tools that offer instant relief from the heat.  You'll also want to take a mid-day break to give your son a chance to rest and refuel. 

    You can certainly 'beat the heat' if you plan accordingly.  Have a great trip!
