OVERVIEW: JULY 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
Because pretty much every US school kid is on break in July, July overall is the most crowded month at Walt Disney World.
Prices begin the month low at the deluxes, OK at the moderates, and high at the values. Moderate and value prices stay at this level all month, but at the deluxes prices drop to even lower levels on July 7.
Weather is miserably hot and humid all month long.

OVERVIEW: MAY 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
Earlier May is a great time to visit Walt Disney World, with low crowds, moderate prices, and good weather.
Crowds build over the month, and the end of the month sees high crowds from Memorial Day, and the beginning of humid and rainy summer weather.

OVERVIEW: APRIL 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
The late Easter in 2017 and the pattern of pricing and spring breaks before and after it means that the only period in the month that I recommend is the end of the month–April 22 and later.

OVERVIEW: MARCH 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
The first week of March can be a great time to go to Disney World, and is so in 2017, up until March 10. The rest of the month will be lousy–with high prices and high crowds.

OVERVIEW: FEBRUARY 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
Early February 2017 will have some of the lowest crowds and prices of the year, but also the risk of ride closures.
The end of the month brings slightly higher prices and crowds, but better weather and few closures.
In between–in 2017, the period from Thursday the 16th through Saturday the 25th–we will see high crowds and high prices.

OVERVIEW: JANUARY 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
Early January 2017 will be dominated by holiday crowds and prices, but after the 6th, most days will see low crowds and low prices–with upticks around the Marathon (weekend of the 9th), the Martin Luther King Day three day holiday weekend, and possibly during the days before the Pro Bowl on January 29.
January is not recommended for first-time visitors who may never return, because of ride closures. For returning visitors–and first timers who know they can return–it’s usually a great time to visit, but the Pro Bowl does add some uncertainty to 2017.
