    Hello~ I am trying to plan vacation for my family. This will be our first time staying in Disney (3 days or 5 not sure yet). I am sure spring break will be crazy, but I am planning to get there on saturday April 7th. How busy is it around this time? Vicki

    Hi Vicki!

    Congratulations on planning your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World (WDW)!

    I use the tool on touringplans dot com, which is affiliated with the "Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World" book series, to review estimated crowd levels. For a small fee this site provides you with calendars and information on the best time of year to visit WDW, which park to visit and more! I think it is well worth the small price and it pays for itself.

    The Spring Break timeframe, specifically April 7, is typically a busy time of year for WDW. School spring breaks are staggered throughout March and April, so both of those months tend to have heavier crowds. That doesn't mean that a Spring Break vacation is out, Walt Disney World is magical no matter when you visit, but just know that you may need to plan for fewer activities per day or a longer trip so you have more time to do the "must-see" attractions.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
