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
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.
