    When are the crowds typically lower during the mos. of Mar. through May?

    Hi, Jack!
    Thanks for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I've had a chance to visit Walt Disney World Resort during all three of those months and I would say during the weekdays, the crowd level is moderate. The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival brings in a steady number of people and the crowd can sometimes be dramatically bigger on the weekends. 

    Some school districts across the country have Spring Break over March and April, but the crowd size can start to get bigger in May when schools start to let out for the summer. I like to follow my best tip fo managing crowds no matter what time of year I'm visiting: Get to the park you want to visit before it opens. Fewer people take advantage of the parks when they first open. It can be super empty and enjoyable no matter the season!

    I hope that helps with your planning!
