Between Thanksgiving and Christmas school holidays (think first 2 weeks in December) it is dead. You can walk on any rides with no wait whatsoever, or worst case a very limited wait. I have in-laws in the area that are big Disney people and Disney World at its emptiest is about the only way I can deal with that place.

Unfortunately, Disney has crowds all year round. They may be a little less at certain times of the year, but Disney will offer promotions for that time period, or have conventions or pee-wee football tournaments to bring the guest numbers up. Also, during the "dead" times, Disney will bring rides off-line for refurb, so you don't get the fullest experience.

I don't know about Disney World, but we happened to be at Disneyland one day when it was grey and drizzling. Not enough to get us wet, but there were very few people there. It was great!

Mid-January, first week of February, third week of February, first two weeks of December. The last week of September can be pretty slow as well.

Rides can go off-line at any time of the year. Going peak season is no guarantee everything will be up and running.

I will be going during the first couple weeks of December. Good to hear it will be not as crowded. I heard the week of Christmas is insane.

We went 2 years ago the week after Thanksgiving. I won't say the park was empty but you rarely had to wait to get on any ride. The weather was in the 70's - clear and sunny except for one day of downpours.
