    We are planning a trip to Disney arriving April11th around noon and leaving the 17th. There are nine of us and include a 2 &5 year old. We have hopper passes & meal plan. Would you suggest any particular park on any particular day to avoid crowds?

    Hi Marjorie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If you want help planning to avoid the crowds as much as possible, I suggest visiting the independent website TouringPlans.com.  That is the website for the research team behind the tour book "The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World".  They are famous in the Disney fan community for producing a crowd calendar that predicts the crowd levels in the various parks on specific days.  They are also famous for producing touring plans, basically step by step instructions on how to tour the parks in such a way to minimize your wait in lines.  Their recommendations are based on a lot of math and years of data collection.  As an engineer, I am a huge fan of their work.  Definitely check out their site!  A small subscription fee is required, but I think it is definitely worth every penny.  They even have a mobile wait time application that you can put on a smart phone to help you in the parks!

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
