    We are planning to go to WDW from march 31 to april 5, 2012 with my 1 and 4 years sons. Please, let me know about the weather and crowd for this season. Also I will like to know about suggested schedule for my trip, no water parks at this time. Thks!

    Hi, Ana!

    You're coming to the World at a beautiful time, The weather is just starting to warm up, so you'll definitely be able to take advantage of your Resort pool during the day, while the nights are still cool enough that you might want to bring a light sweatshirt or jacket along for your activities.

    After Presidents' Day weekend in February, Disney attendance does see an uptick. School calendars often start spring breaks in early March and roll through late April, and Spring Breakers (and their families) do love to spend time at Disney during vacation!

    With children as young as yours, I would suggest a very relaxed approach. Consider planning out your absolute must-dos in advance: is there an attraction or a ride that the four-year-old is finally tall enough to try? Does the one-year-old have a favorite character? Keeping a list of Park priorities and not feeling like you have to do absolutely everything .... that might be the way to go.

    Allow yourself to go slowly. Your children will love the sights and sounds of the World just as much as they'll get a kick out of the rides. I find that just soaking up the atmosphere can be invigorating sometimes!

    Build some time in your day, perhaps, to go back to your Resort for a nap or a swim -- some daily quiet time in general can be helpful. This will refresh all of the members of your traveling party, and prepare you all for the incredible nighttime offerings at the Parks.

    Have a wonderful time on your trip!

    See you later, celebrator!
