    we are looking at going to wdw around march 19-27 2013. We have a autistic son who's birthday is on the 20th of march and we where wondering if the crown levles are around what they are at the end of october? we usually go around that time of year.

    Hi, Bill!

    I've been to Walt Disney World during both late March as well as in October and can say that the crowd levels aren't too bad up until Friday March 22nd, the Friday before Easter.

    However, according to, a great unofficial source of crowd prediction, March 19-22 should have a crowd level of 7 or 8 out of 10, but will top out at an average of 10 out of 10 for the rest of your stay. The end of October runs significantly lower, with crowd levels averaging 7 out of 10 at their highest and as low as 2 out of 10 on other days as well.

    As with other holiday weeks, because the Easter holiday falls just after your trip, crowds will be a bit higher than at other times of the year. While you can certainly get a Guest Assistance Card for your son, to make entrance into certain attractions more tolerable for him, there will still be many more people in the parks during that week. Let me know if you'd like more information regarding the GAC card, as well as any other questions you may have about your next trip to WDW; I'd love to help!
