    Just wondering how packed you think arriving April 8th and staying for a week versus a later week in April 2018 will be. Do you think Easter/spring break crowds will be leaving by then or do you think that will still be a crowded week? Thanks, Holly

    Hi Holly,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    My family often visits Walt Disney World during Spring Break. As our daughter has gotten older, we find that it is best to take our vacations when she is off from school. Many school districts do build their Spring Break around Easter, so right around Easter is often a time when many guests visit Walt Disney World. Easter is April 1, 2018, so the week before and after that are the weeks that I would expect to see them most guests at Walt Disney World.

    You mention that you might arrive on April 8. By then, I think that the bulk of the Spring Break visitors will be leaving, and that the rest of April will be pretty similar in how many guests are at Walt Disney World, with perhaps the number tapering off a bit through the month.

    No matter when you plan to visit Walt Disney World, I do suggest that you take advantage of the Disney FastPass+ system. When you make Disney FastPass+ selections, you are able to experience some attractions each day with shortened wait times. It is a great way to do more on each Disney day!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Holly. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
