Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Our family is making its first trip to Disney this Spring, with two preschool aged boys. The first day of our trip happens to be Easter. Can you tell me which park might have the lowest crowd on Easter day?

- Disney does not release specific park attendance numbers for specific days, so I can't tell you exactly, but my advice would be to avoid the Magic Kingdom on Easter. I'm guessing that most families with young children will find this classic experience the best way to celebrate the holiday. Thus, I would stay away from the crowds there and maybe choose one of the smaller parks, Animal Kingdom or Disney's Hollywood Studios, as an alternative.
The entire two weeks surrounding Easter are one of the most crowded times at WDW. You can have a great time then, but I would strongly encourage you to plan ahead to make the most of your trip. Make sure you have advance dining reservations. Also, during the busy seasons it is very important to be at the parks early. During holidays, the parks can be crushing by late morning. Go back to your hotel by noon and take a nice swim, then venture out again for an early dinner and a few more rides. Just a little planning like this can make all the difference.
