    We have decided to take my daughter to DW for the first time for her 5th birthday on 4/2/11 thru 4/8/11. I have noticed from reading that this is one of the most busiest time in regards to crowds. Do you have any advice on how to make it less stressful?

    Hey April!  I can absolutely help you with this as my middle daughter's birthday falls this same week and it's always spring break for many schools in the South.  So each year we go and fight the crowds, but I am going to be honest it has never been horrible.  The best recommendations I can make is to start your days as early as possible.  Be there when the parks open and hit the more popular attractions first.  Also take advantage of FP.  This will truly help to make your day less stressful.  Grab a FP for an attraction that has a long wait time and go enjoy an attraction that allows a great deal of people to go in at one time.  I have found this helps to break up the wait times and gives you a chance, in most cases, to enjoy some nice cool AC. 
    Honestly, I have gone that very week at least 6 times and I never felt like we picked the wrong week.  Enjoy and remember you are going to be at WDW!
    Thanks so much for the great question, and I hope these tips help.
