    Hi my bday is 4/16 & my daughters is 4/20. We were going to plan a trip 4/15-22 but then I saw the Star Wars run is scheduled that wkend. Do you think the parks will be full bc of this? Should we come 4/18-25 instead ok to miss my bday but not hers!

    Hello Christina! Welcome to planDisney! I love that you are planning a two-birthday celebration for you and your daughter! That will be such a memorable experience for both of you!

    Predicting crowd sizes is a bit of a Disney-science! Any time I hear "April" and "Disney" in the same sentence I first think of Easter and spring break. Your trip is for later in April, so you do avoid the crowds associated with that holiday in 2021. You should be prepared for some Spring break crowds any time in the month of April.

    When planning your visit you should also keep in mind that Disney Parks are doing a great job keeping park capacity at a reasonable level. This is being managed through the Disney Park Pass System. This feature is keeping crowd size in parks low and wait times for rides and attractions relatively short. While the runDisney Star Wars Revival Run Weekend is scheduled to take place during your planned visit, I don't believe that crowd capacity will be overwhelming at the four parks. You might expect a bit more activity at Disney's Hollywood Studios due to the level of interest in Star Wars themed events and attractions at that particular park!

    Happy birthday to both you and your daughter! I hope you have a magical birthday celebration together! For some extra planning fun with your daughter, be sure to check out the list of amazing Disney Dining experiences for you and your daughter to enjoy together! I celebrated a big birthday at Be Our Guest Restaurant with my family. It was a wonderful night out! I hope you and your daughter have the same experience!
