    Hello!! My fiancee and I are planning on staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort sometime in mid to late April 2016, with Easter being Mar. 27th. Will the parks be busy at this time? Also, do you suggest sticking to 1 park a day or park hopping?

    Hello Christina!

    How exciting that you're planning a Walt Disney World vacation for 2016!  I have visited the Walt Disney World Resort several times in April and have always found the parks to be more manageable and less crowded during the last two weeks of the month. Many schools schedule Spring Break holidays between March and mid April, so the parks are historically more crowded at that time. 

    I do like having the flexibility that comes with adding the Park Hopper Option. For example, you could visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Park during the morning and then park hop to Epcot that evening to enjoy an amazing dinner at one of the Table-Service restaurants in the World Showcase. That being said, my family tends to park hop more on extended trips rather than a one day visit or short weekend, due to the time it can take moving from one park to the next. 

    I hope this information helps. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical trip, Christina!

    Happy Planning,
