    I am arriving March 8-13th. I have been before 9 times, but am bringing a 10 yr old for his first visit. Is this a crowded time of year and how do i know which park to go to on which day for least crowds? thank you

    Hi Barbara,

    I'm going to send you over to an independent website that tracks crowd levels at the Disney parks. Head on over to and look for something called the "Crowd Calendar." This will give you very educated estimates of what you can expect to find during your visit. 

    For the dates of March 8-13, the first few days will be fairly moderate (a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10), but the last few days (when the Spring Break season starts) will be quite crowded (a 10 on a scale of 1-10). If you take a look at the crowd calendar, you'll find suggestions for which park will be least busy on each day.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have more questions.
