Planning for Disney World in April

by Leap on April 1, 2014

Disney World in April sees abundant sunshine and plenty of special events, making it an excellent time to visit the parks if you can swing a trip! We especially love that the two biggest events of spring, Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando and the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, are included with regular theme park admission.

Crowds at Disney World in April

Disney World in April - Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

Crowds at Disney World in April are largely dictated by Easter. Many school give off a few days leading up to the holiday with some schools holding spring break the entire week. For this reason, the week before the holiday (and to a lesser extent the week of the holiday) sees the highest crowds of the month. The rest of the month is generally neutral. If you're visiting during Easter, check out our survival guide. Those of you visiting during the first of the month and these days will want to take advantage of our wait-time apps. Getting to the park before opening is always a good idea, but it's even more crucial when crowd levels are high.

To make your planning easier, our Crowd Calendar is available a full year out! We recommend you check the Crowd Calendar when you begin planning your trip to find the best travel dates and then revisiting it again as you get closer to your actual trip to pick the recommended park by day.

Weather at Disney World in April 

Temperatures are on the rise in April, with an average high of 83 and a low of 60. There will be plenty of warm days and very low rainfall chances, so don't forget the swimsuits. You might still need a jacket for the evenings and mornings. Here is the packing list for this time of year.

Events at Disney World in April

There are a few major events happening in April. Here’s the rundown of what’s happening this month. Be sure to check out special events pages for Disney WorldUniversal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando for full details.

Hi, We are 2 adults who are visiting 14 April for 7 nights. We are staying at the Floridian, so transportation is not an issue, however will the parks be a bit quieter ? We understand their is a flower festival at Epcot, does this make a difference? Thank you in advance. Marina and Ian.

Hi Marina,

Check out our Crowd Calendar. You will see medium crowds during your visit. Disney's Grand Floridian is absolutely spectacular! You will love it.

We are planning our trip for either the last week in April, or the first week in May. What is the difference in crowd sizes for these two weeks? We will be hitting all the parks over 5 days.

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

Crowds will be very similar, although they look slightly better for the last week in April.

Keep hopping!

Hi Tina,

How wonderful! He will be free to get into the parks. Although you can rent, I would definitely bring a stroller as well as any other regular gear for him. The parks do have everything you could possibly need in the Baby Care Centers, but it's always best to bring everything you think you will need. Don't forget hats and sunscreen!

Keep hopping!
