    We will be in DW March 27- April 2. Wondering which parks to visit on what days? And, what is the best way to avoid the crowds?

    Hi there, April! The weather in central Florida is absolutely fantastic at that time of the year; you are sure to enjoy the warm days and cool nights! That is, of course, Spring Break season, and you'll find plenty of families coming down to enjoy vacation time at Walt Disney World. Crowd levels, while higher than average, are not that of summer vacation season, so you should find wait times to be manageable. While there is no way to avoid the crowds altogether, you can certainly make effective use of your time. Web sites and apps like can help you develop a "plan of attack" based on predicted crowd levels and historical data. Perks like Extra Magic Hours, reserved for Guests of the Resort, also allow more flexibility in trip planning. From the start, I would urge you to consider visiting Magic Kingdom and Epcot on the weekdays of your trip. Normally crowd levels see an uptick on weekends, and these two popular Parks definitely reflect that trend. Perhaps you could start with Magic Kingdom on the 28th, then move to Epcot on the 29th. The Parks that are usually not as busy during that time - Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios - should not see too much of a marked increase during the weekend. If you'd like to drop me a line with some of your family's "must-dos," I'd be glad to help create a more specific itinerary to maximize the magic. I hope to hear from you! See you later, celebrator, -Deborah B.
