    Our family would like to visit WDW next March but I’m wondering if it’s typically busy mid March.. it’s our daughter’s spring break from college and she’d like to come along with us and our other adult children and first grand child! Thank you!

    Oh, Susan, you had me at first grandchild. I'm so in love with our first new grandbaby!

    While I think any time is a good time to visit Walt Disney World, I totally understand that it's important to know how crowded it will be so you can make the most of your vacation. Many schools still do the traditional spring break based around the Easter schedule, which in 2019 is April 21st. I would say the weeks closer to Easter are going to be the peak of busy in terms of theme parks. 

    Even during busy times, there are some tips to keep the gang moving. Definitely book your FastPass+ attraction selections as soon as you can. If you are a Walt Disney World resort guest, you can make your selections 60 days in advance. 

    I like to arrive at the park first thing in the morning, as soon as they open. I hit the top attraction picks for my family, knowing that I have the FastPass+ selections for later in the day. I like the morning extra magic hours, which give resort guests an extra hour at one of the theme parks in the morning before the park is open to the general public. You can get at least a couple of big things out of the way in that hour.

    Plan any table service dining reservations well in advance. I just booked a character lunch with Winnie the Pooh and friends for my sweet little guy. To have the best selection of times and dining locations, you can begin booking those reservations 180 days in advance.

    Enjoy a magical family vacation, Susan! Thanks for your question.
