    My family and I were there last October during the Food & Wine Festival. We thought the crowds were average. We're planning a trip for early 2014. What would the crowds be like in late February or early April compared to what they were mid-October?

    Hi Erik!

    Congratulations on planning your next vacation to Walt Disney World in early 2014!  Typically you can expect to see crowd levels similar or slightly less in February than what you experienced in October.  The only exception to this is if you plan on traveling near President's Day weekend, the parks will certainly be more crowded during any holiday or school break.  The crowd levels will continue to increase with the approach of spring break for many schools and colleges so expect the parks to be more crowded during this time of year especially as Easter approaches.  I would recommend visiting during the last part of February (with the exception of President's Day Weekend), the weather is more comfortable, park crowds are more manageable and you can possibly see better rates and discounts this time of year.  

    I hope you have a magical vacation and please visit us again if you have anymore questions!

    Happy Planning!
