Danielle.... Could be very busy, especially for the first week in the run off after Easter hols. US school spring break varies but it could be around this time.

My guess is that it will be much busier than September. The weather will be warm without being oppressive.

Hello we went from the 29th April for two weeks, still very hot but bearable. However we did have very bad rain for the first few days. Crowd wise we were very lucky some days, some days not. One day we went Universal and our longest wait was 15 minutes. Other days waited an hour. We enjoyed it though!

I think it's a pretty good time. Do be warned, though, Florida starts getting hot in April. Not as hot as June-August, obviously, but it can be toasty. The retirees in the northern US who head down there for the winter pack it up and come home at the end of March.

As for spring break, obviously it varies nationwide, but it's almost always in March, so I would not be too concerned about that.

Easter is April 20th next year. I would avoid the week immediately before and immediately after Easter. Two weeks after Easter should be fine.

29/4 may well be late enough to escape the crowds. I was thinking a week earlier. If you can get decent flights then definitely consider.

We went last year 27th April - 4th May. Was very quiet for orlando. Never waited more than 10 minutes for a ride and didn't see one drop of rain. Was perfect :) xxx

Weatherwise end of April beginning of May is perfect - we've been many times to Florida then. Lovely and warm and generally just before it gets too humid. You do sometimes get a day when it rains but on the whole weather has been great.

Hi

We are booked to fly out 2nd May 2014 for 2 weeks.

I believe the spring break is early April next year (we originally wanted to go before easter but were advised not to due to spring break).

Just out of interest where are you looking to stay? We have got a great deal through Monarch to stay at The Peabody for 2 weeks.

Have fun x
