    Im planning a trip to Disney World March 5-12 2018. Could you tell me what the crowds will be like?

    Hello, Paula,

    Isn't it so much fun to begin planning a trip to Walt Disney World?  During the spring, the months of March and April are more popular since many schools are on spring break.  However, the first part of March may not have the higher number of guests that the latter part of the month could bring, especially with Easter on April 1, 2018. 

    Since my family is limited to visiting during school breaks when crowds are often bigger, we do a lot of careful planning to make advanced dining reservations and utilize FastPass+ reservations to help reduce our waits.  We are also a morning family, so we get to the parks when they open; for us, this is a huge benefits as we can walk to a handful of attractions during this time.  Extra Magic Hours for Disney resort guests can also be a great perk. 

    As you continue planning your trip, please let us know how we can help.  Wishing you a magical trip!  -Kara
