Is late April still a busy time?

I know it is hard to predict when it will be "crazy", but I was wondering if there tends to be a time when things settle down at Disney? We were advised to wait until after Easter when it goes back to "regular" season, so we have booked April 25th-May 1st. Does anyone go this time every year where they have something to compare it to?

Hi there,

We go every year and this time and love it! The weather is absolutely beautiful and unfortunately the crowds are hit or miss, at least from my experience. The first year (3 years ago) we went the day after Easter and it was NUTS! We have been going the last week in April/first week of May every year since then and found it to be busy, but not crazy! I also found Universal and IOA to be less crowded than Disney. Animal Kingdom was the least crowded, followed by Epcot. MGM was also very crowded. Hope this helps and enjoy your trip!

You should be fine. Most, if not all, kids should be back in school. Enjoy!
