    Hello!! I am planning to visit in the middle of march how are crowds typically and would u suggest a different time like April or may?

    Greetings Shayna,

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! It will be here before you know it. Although crowd levels can vary greatly, they are typically higher from the middle of March until the end of April due to spring break. I have visited in March, April and May and have always felt like we experienced everything that was on our "must do" list. That being said, I usually avoid the days leading up to and following Easter. 

    If you have your heart set on visiting in March, I think you will be able to experience everything you would like by planning your trip in advance.  The parks are historically more crowded when schools are not in session. If you are choosing a date based on crowd levels alone, then you may want to visit in early to mid-May when most schools are back in session. You may also want to visit touringplans.com to view their crowd calendar when choosing specific dates. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. If you have any additional questions regarding your Walt Disney World vacation, please don't hesitate to visit us again. Best wishes for a magical trip, Shayna!

    Happy Planning,
