    We (8 total) are planning a trip to Disney (3rd) the week of Easter. 8days. I'm concerned about crowd levels. We traveled before in Dec & Feb when crowds are low. Will we have trouble seeing everything? Long lines? How does Easter compare to Thnksg/X

    Hi ya, Jenny! The parks will be packed like the amount of talent that comprises NKOTBSB. And while keeping New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys together forever is somewhat out of our hands, the ability to see everything during crowded times like Easter is totally in your control.

    Let's break it down.

    Crowd levels around Easter are second only to Christmastime. That doesn't mean your hands are tied though. To accommodate the peak crowd levels, Disney will extend park hours by opening earlier in the day and staying open later at night. For example, Magic Kingdom will likely have multiple mornings when it opens at 7:00 a.m. (Extra Magic Hours) or 8:00 a.m. the week of Easter.

    You can have a super productive morning by arriving prior to park opening and following a touring plan (see Take a midday break when the parks are busiest and then take a more relaxed approach when you return to a park later in the day.

    You'll have no problem seeing everything with your 8 days and efficient mornings.
