    We are traveling to WDW & staying a PO French Quarter in early April with our 2 boys (5 & 2 1/2 yrs old)... any suggestions on must see attractions, and how are the crowds and weather at that time. I know its the beginning of spring break for most

    Hi Frank - You are right that April can be crowded, as many schools do have spring break throughout the month.  I would definitely recommend that you do research before you arrive, so that you'll know exactly which attractions are must-dos for your family.

    I'm not sure how many days you are staying, so I don't know if you'll be visiting all of the parks.  But here are some attractions in each of the theme parks that should appeal to your children:

    Magic Kingdom

    Pirates of the Caribbean
    The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    it's a small world
    MIckey's Philharmagic

    Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Toy Story Mania
    Disney Junior Live on Stage
    Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set
    Star Tours (for the older child)
    Muppet*Vision 3D

    The Seas with Nemo and Friends
    Journey into Imagination with Figment
    Gran Fiesta Tour
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    Spaceship Earth

    Animal Kingdom
    Kilimanjaro Safaris
    Finding Nemo - the Musical
    TriceraTop Spin

    Weather in April tends to be in the mid 70s, but keep in mind that the weather does vary quite a bit, so make sure you check before you leave.

    Have a great vacation!
