    In your opinion and if you had to choose one, which is the better week as far as crowds, cost, and weather? April 19-25, 2025 (Magic Kingdom on Easter Sunday) or May 27-June 2, 2025 (week after Memorial Day - Magic Kingdom on Sunday, June 1) Thank you!

    Hey Paula!

    Ah, the eternal question of timing your Disney adventures! It's like trying to choose between a Mickey Ice Cream Bar or a Dole Whip—both are fabulous, but which one gives you that extra sprinkle of magic?

    Now, let's break it down like Goofy trying to solve a puzzle:

    April 19-25, 2025: Easter Sunday at the Magic Kingdom! You've got the whole shebang: pastel-colored eggs, bunny ears as far as the eye can see, and enough chocolate to make even Winnie the Pooh blush. But hold onto your mouse ears because it's also peak season, which means more crowds than Cinderella's ballroom. However, the weather? It's like stepping into a fairy tale—warm sunshine and just a sprinkle of pixie dust.

    May 27-June 2, 2025: Ah, the post-Memorial Day bliss! The crowds are likely easing up like Genie out of his lamp, and you might just find yourself strolling down Main Street USA without bumping into as many fellow explorers as during the Spring Break season. Plus, the weather? It's like being hugged by Olaf himself—warm, but not too hot, with a hint of summer excitement in the air.

    Now with all that being said, I don’t think there is ever a slow time at the Walt Disney World Resort anymore, and that’s ok! With the arrival of special events like the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, Disney After Hours events, and even Disney H2O Glow After Hours at Typhoon Lagoon, it’s hard to stay away from the magic. 

    Regarding pricing for your vacation, while I can’t tell you specifics about cost, I can recommend that you pay attention to any Special Offers that may be available. These Special Offers are often quite lucrative and help my family get the most bang for our buck!

    So, if you're up for the challenge of Easter Sunday extravaganza and don't mind sharing the castle with a few extra princes and princesses, April might be your cup of Mad Tea Party tea. But if you prefer a quieter kingdom and a gentle transition into summer, then May might just be the hidden Mickey you've been searching for.

    Whichever week you choose to visit, I hope that you have an incredible time!
