    Nicole from NY Asked

    Hi There, we are planning a trip to WDW in the Spring of 2019. Is there much a difference in crowd levels between the week of 4/28; which is one full week after Easter and the week of Mother’s Day 5/12?

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! I’m glad you’re hEAR! I tend to visit Walt Disney World Resort at various times of the year, and I never really know what kinds of crowds to expect until I do some research. I have seen crowds grow through the day and wait times be both minimal and soaring.

    My favorite tool to estimate crowd levels has been Undercover Tourist’s Crowd Calendar (you can Google that). You can look up any day of the year (in your case, you should look up your exact vacation dates) to see how crowded the parks will be on a scale of 1-10 and which parks you may want to avoid and which destination you should aim for. This will give you an exact answer to your question. Typically, Easter crowds can be very thick, nearly the level of Thanksgiving crowds, so FastPass+ and dining reservations will be your best friend as a break from the hubbub. If you need to visit during a peak park time, use these methods coupled with early mornings and a mid-day break to make it more tolerable.

    If I can help you find a new favorite place to eat or off the beaten path activities, please let me know. And always let your conscience be your guide! ~ Lindsey P.
