College Spring break a factor?

Hello, this is my very first post on disboards. Sooo..I apologize in advance if I am not posting this question in the right place. I am planning my family's second trip to WDW. I am 20 weeks pregnant with our 4th child, so we only have a few months to squeeze this trip in before the baby comes! We had looked a few weeks. The one week we are leaning towards (The w/o March 16-20) seems to have VERY few elementary schools around the country on Spring Break but a lot of colleges are off this week. So my question is- is WDW a big college spring break destination? My kids are young (4, 3, 21 months) so we'd probably be in different areas of all the parks as college kids, but just wondering if anyone has experience during college spring break? Hope I'm not rambling...thanks!

That's the same week my daughter is out, I would love to know too. We had to go without her last time because her schedule is just too hard to work with, she may never forgive me if I do it again LOL.

Easy wdw has crowds at a 7 that week (10 is the most crowded with 1 being the least crowded). The crowd calendar at easywdw will not only give you the predicted congestion, but will give you the best park(least crowded) to visit on each day and will explain why. It really is a great trip planning resource when traveling during a crowded time. Touring plans.com has one as well. Sometimes the information differs and there is debate on here often about which is best.

My husband is a college professor so we have gone during college spring break weeks a few times. It's crowded but not horrible. In my opinion, it's not really a college destination but lots of communities do have earlier school spring breaks. This is true of many college towns, for example.

The weather is wonderful...usually in the 70's to low 80's during the day with only a light jacket needed in the early morning or evening hours.

I hate the heat and humidity so for me, it's great.
