    planning a trip in April 2023 14-24, what will be going on at the parks

    Hi Constance! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited to hEAR you are planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth in the new year! April is a beautiful time to visit Walt Disney World, with the weather being one of the biggest contributors. You will find the parks to be a bit busier during this time due to Spring Break for many schools around the United States. But with the proper planning, you should be able to navigate the parks with ease! 

    Although this has not been announced, I highly anticipate the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival to make a return during this time. This festival typically runs from early March until the beginning of July, so April will be a great time to catch it. There is a perfect mix of outdoor kitchens and beautiful topiaries scattered throughout the park, many of them around the World Showcase. The Garden Rock Concert Series was a big part of the festival during this past year's event, so I'm hoping that Disney will bring this back again next year. If you are a fan of live music, this is the perfect place to take a load off and enjoy a variety of different bands.

    If you plan to bring your running shoes, the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend is taking place April 13th-16th. There is a variety of races over a few-day span that is bound to be a blast! The courses are always tied into the Disney Parks in some aspect, so it is a great chance to see the parks from a different vantage point. If you are interested, I suggest following the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements regarding the registration dates for these events.

    One exciting experience to keep an eye out for is the opening of the newest attraction at the Magic Kingdom, TRON Lightcycle Power Run. While there is no definitive date yet for its opening, it's not inconceivable that this ride will debut sometime in early 2023. I am optimistic that this will be the case, and if so, it will need to quickly be added to your must-ride list! There are already so many attractions that fall into this category, including the recently debuted Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but TRON will be another one to put on!

    Constance, I hope you find this information helpful when planning your upcoming stay! Stop back and see me again at planDisney if you think of any additional planning questions!

    Have a magical day!
