Mom With Kids After Run

    We are planning a vacation the first week in April 2014 (3/31 - 4/5/14) and I am a little nervous about the Spring Break crowds. Do you know if they are usually bad during this time?

    Hi Jill,

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel. While no crowd is ever "bad" at Walt Disney World (you won't be able to count the amount of smiles you'll see), there are times of the year when things can get a little congested. March and April are 2 of the busiest months during the Walt Disney World vacation season, due to everyone being out for Spring Break. I'd say, if you are nervous about crowds, be sure to plan as much as you can. Make your FastPass+ selections and plan your meals around your selected times. Spend your evenings at your resort, taking in some pool time or watching a free Walt Disney Movie. If a park has Extra Magic Hours, try to visit that one on another day. Many guests will venture to the park that has Extra Magic Hours and stay for most of the day, leaving other parks with less crowds. Also, this may be the time when you'll visit some of the classic attractions, shows and meet and greets. The queues won't be as long and you may be able to enjoy them more than once while the crowds hit up the more popular attractions.

    All and all, just remember to have fun and feel free to bow out and relax at your resort, if need be. Some of the most magical moments of a Walt Disney World trip tend to happen during your down time.

    I hope this answered your question, Jill. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask us at any time. We're always here to help you.
