    My family is in the process of planning a trip to Disney in the spring. Being that Easter is late this year we were wondering what week would be best to visit (least amount of crowds). We are debating between March 31, 2014 8nights or April 24, 2014?

    Hi Cynthia:

    There are two big Disney rules that I believe in.  The first is to wear comfortable shoes.  The second is that crowds tend to be lightest when schools are in session.

    For a lot of schools in the North East, Spring Break occurs mid April, which is in-between your proposed dates.  Between the two dates you choose, I honestly believe that the crowd levels will be extremely similar.  However, since you asked the question, I feel obliged to give a real answer.  Given late Easter, if I had to pick between the two dates, I would sliiiightly lean towards starting your trip on March 31, 2014.  But I honestly believe either date will have similar crowds.

    Enjoy your vacation.
