    What are your top tips for surviving the crowds in Walt Disney World during Easter week?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Tricia ~

    I have made trips to Disney World during every peak season. Easter is Sunday, April 5, 2015 so that week will likely be very crowded. Perhaps not as jammed as New Years, but spring break levels are typically pretty high as well. Here are some tips that may help you before and during your trip:

    * Use the Disney Parks Moms Panel - we'll be here to help you with all of your planning questions so you are ready to go.
    * Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible to ensure you get what you want. This will also give you access to Extra Magic Hours that are only available to Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel.
    * If you stay on property, purchase your tickets in advance, and link them to your My Disney Experience account, you can take advantage of Disney FastPass+ service (FP+) and make your FP+ selections before your trip. Disney Resort Guests can make them 60 days in advance.
    * Make Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs). These can be made be made up to 180 days prior to your trip. You can make reservations through the link above or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
    * Select your 3 "must dos" in the parks you're visiting and do those first.
    * Unless you have ADRs, plan to eat lunch and dinner earlier than usual. This will help you avoid some of the crowds.
    * Bring your own water and snacks to avoid waiting in line for them.
    * Keep breakfast items in your room so that you can grab a quick bite and head out early.
    * Plan some adventures outside of the parks - we can help with ideas.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
