    We are planning to visit Walt Disney World during either the last week of April 2016 or the first week of May 2016? I am looking to receive advice as to if one of these weeks is a good time to come? We are concerned about crowds etc.

    Hello Lawrence,

    You are getting a head start on planning your trip for 2016.  The peak time in spring is around Easter and Spring Break which should be avoided if you're concerned about crowds.  In 2016, Easter is on March 27, so you'll be fine.  The weather is very nice during these months and you'll be able to attend the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival.

    To view crowd calendars, my expert resource is  It's a bit early for the 2016 calendars, but for 2015, your planned weeks are at a crowd level of 4 to 5, which I think is optimal.

    We'd love for you to come back and see us when you start to finalize your plans for next year.  We've got lots of advice to help you plan a fantastic vacation!

    Be Magical,

    Leanne T.
