    We'll be in WDW from 4/28 - 5/5 without a park hopper.We would like to take advantage of extra night hours at parks (since we can't hop) but really dislike crowds. Are parks crowded during this week anyway? ADR for CRT (lunch) on Sun., should I change?

    Hi, Diana!  A Spring Vacation in Disney sounds fabulous!

    With your arrival date of April 28, you should be past the spring break rush and before the summer vacationers, so the crowds should be manageable.

    I really enjoy the evening Extra Magic Hours.  The temperatures are cooler and I love seeing all the lights around the parks.   In my experience, it seems like the first hour of Extra Magic Hours is a bit crazy, but then the crowd seems to thin out.  To best avoid these crowds, perhaps schedule a late dinner in the park, and by the time you finish eating, the park will be welcoming for you!

    A lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table is a real treat.  This is a fun experience and a great chance to feel like royalty!  I would keep this reservation if I were you, but you know what you will enjoy the most!

    Enjoy your Disney vacation!
