Hello, I am trying to plan a trip to hit the Orlando resort but hate dealing with super crowded parks. What is the best time to go for the lightest crowds?

Hard to say right now... It seems there's going to be a lot of demand for local travel for the next year and Orlando is one the top spots for that. In years past - it was always late Aug to pre-Thanksgiving (outside of Labor Day/Columbus Day) and mid-Jan to end of Feb (outside Pres Day)

Usually the first two weeks of December are slower weeks for the parks because people generally travel for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas so they generally don't travel between them, plus the weather is usually perfect.

super bowl weekend is usually a good time to go in my experience. Especially if you don't mind missing the game.
