    This will be my family's first visit we have the choice of March 7-12 or April 4-9 whats tha best bet for lower crowds and what kind of weather can be expected at either time?

    Hi Renee!
    Isn't it great to have choices?? Since different parts of the country have different school breaks, it is a toss-up as to the crowd part of your question. For example, I am from Massachusetts, and we have a week off from school in both February and April, but my sister's kids in the Midwest have a single (longer) break in March. Disney crowds begin to shake off the cold for "spring break" from approximately late February throught the Easter holiday (which is after your stated trip dagtes for this year, so tha's a plus). I would suggest booking the trip with the dates that are most convenient for you and your family, as the crowds should not be overwhelming during either time. The parks won't be empty, but they will not be as crowded as many other times of year.
    Weather in Florida really starts to get nice in March and April (although evening temps can still get fairly cool). Daytime highs average 78 degrees in March and 84 degrees in April.
    I wish you a Magical trip (be it March or April)!! :)
