    Hi! Had the pleasure to visit 4/28-5/6/12. Was thinking about next year (maybe). Looked on touringplans, but when were were there in 2012 it was perfect. Trying to think between 4/19-4/26/13 & 4/26-5/5/13? Any known events then? Leaning towards 4/26


    For special events, you can always assume that Disney has something up their sleeve. So knowing anything can happen, you do still have a few regular events you can expect, like the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival (March thru May, typically).

    Star Wars Weekends should not happen until after your two windows, so that is not something you will have to content with.

    If it were me, I would aim to the earlier of your two time frames. I think that the crowds will be somewhat lighter then than in the later week that you listed. While neither time is going to be empty, you will get more pockets of light crowds and shorter lines in that first week than in the second, making it easier to get more done, and to spend less time in lines.

    BOTTOM LINE: You know what you had this year, so if you pick the second time frame in 2013, you should be able to expect much the same experience. But if you have the latitude to adjust to the one-week earlier time span that you listed, you might get just a bit better experience through slightly smaller crowds. In either case it sounds like you should have a great time!

    Have a magical vacation!
