    Hi! I am a teacher and can only vacation during school breaks. Worried about crowds. Choosing between week before Easter (Mar 23-30) or Aug 13-20, 2013. Not crazy about Aug heat, but will deal with it if crowds will be a lot less then wk before Easter.

    If crowds are your concern, April, I would definitely advise you to travel during that second/third week of August.  It will be hot and humid, but crowds during that time of year are very tolerable.  You run a much higher risk of encountering really high crowd levels in March as spring break crowds will likely be out in full force.  Another perk of traveling in August is that you can probably take advantage of some great promotional discounts during that time of year.  Keep an eye on the special offers section of the website for updates as the dates get closer.  I hope that helps!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
