    Can you please tell me what weeks you consider high traffic "spring break" weeks for 2010?

    Dear S:

    As a rule, the week between Palm Sunday and Easter tends to bring the highest traffic to Disney World during Spring.  In fact, it would probably be second only to the week between Christmas and New Year's for crowds.  From there, the week before Palm Sunday and the week after Easter are also busy. 

    And you don't have to take my word for it.  The rule of supply and demand bears this out....Disney's perception of the crowds can simply be seen in their designation of "Easter" rates which ran this past year from the day before Palm Sunday until the Friday after Easter.  These rates were their highest of the year except for the week between Christmas and New Year's.  (It also should be noted that Easter rates were higher than the peak rates that began running in mid-February all the way up to the Friday before Palm Sunday.)

    If rates alone are an indication of crowds, then the Saturday before Palm Sunday to the Friday after Easter bring the highest traffic of Spring.  With my own experience from last year, after the first full week of March, crowds tend to pick up.  So if you're looking to go during Spring when crowds are lower, look before the first weekend of March or toward the end of April.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
