    Hi! With Passover & Easter being the same week for 2010 (Passover 3/30 & Easter 4/4), does that mean larger or smaller crowds that week (3/28-4/4)?? Deciding between this week, Presidents Week or summer. THANKS!

    Hi, Kim!  Easter week is typically a very busy week regardless of when Passover falls.  Most schools do not take Passover into consideration when scheduling spring break, however many schools do use Easter week as their spring break week.  I have done Easter week many times at Walt Disney World, and usually find the early part of the week is busier, but it's generally a busy time.

    If you are able to take off at the end of the summer to go, that is one of the best times in my opinion if you want to avoid major crowds.  Many southern schools and a lot of colleges are back in session the week of August 24th, and that means people are home getting their kids off to school.  We have always felt the crowds that last week of August - before you hit Labor Day - was a great time to go to avoid some of the longer lines of summer.

    Presidents weekend can be quite busy, but it does drop off a bit at the end of the week.  My kids usually get a four day weekend for that holiday, so whenever we have gone then, it's always been a Friday through Monday stay, or we might add Thursday or Tuesday to extend, but we wouldn't keep them out of school a whole week.

    Have a great time, whenever you decide to go!
