    We are headed to WDW the second week of April. Arriving Friday night, so our first day will be Saturday. I know it will be crowded, but what park is the best option?

    Hello, Frances!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I am thrilled that you and your family are about to experience what the MAGIC is all about!  Historically, crowds are quite heavy during your time of travel.  However, attendance levels can always change year after year, so I will keep my fingers crossed that this year is the exception.  We can always "WISH UPON A STAR"!

    In my opinion, Magic Kingdom seems to attract large crowds on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Epcot seems busy on Fridays.  Hollywood Studios trends towards the busy side on Sundays and Wednesdays. Disney's Animal Kingdom tends to show high numbers on Tuesdays.  Now please note that these numbers are based on my observations from many years of visiting the parks.  I would highly recommend Disney's Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios for your first day. For the remainder of your days, utilize my advice as to which park you will visit each day.  I hope this helps.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
