April 2015 - Yes or No?!

Hi everyone,

I'm planning a trip to WDW with my mother and daughter for April 25th until May 1st.
Can anyone advise what the weather is like that time of the year? What about the crowd levels?
We were there 2 years ago in October and it was really nice.
But I am not patient enough to wait till October 2015 which is why I'm thinking about April.
Hope you guys can give me some advice and/or ideas.

I like April in the world! I have gone the past two years in April and October and find them nearly perfect for temps and humidity.

Here is the April crowd calendar from easyWDW. I find his predictions spot on.

And May!

I'm booked for my first trip ever in the 2nd week of April. I think it looks like a great mix of moderate crowds, weather with the highs of low 80s and lows of low 60s, and it's flower and garden!

We are planning a trip that week too! 4/27-5/2. I think it will be a great week overall! I have read sources that say there will be runners present in the Animal Kingdom on 5/2 for the Expedition Everest Challenge, but it is after park closing. However they may be scouting out AK that day. But we don't plan on AK for the last day of our trip.

My family is going for our second trip the week after Easter. There's supposed to be heavy crowds the first day of our trip, then the next 3 days it's supposed to be moderate crowds, and the last few days of our trip is supposed to be light crowds. I'm very excited to see the flower and garden festival.
I hope you enjoy your trip!
