Stuck between dates! HELP!

My family is currently stuck deciding between dates. We live in NY and our districts spring break is the April 14-21. And we don't want to go during that week because none of us "kids" are in school. We will also have 2 kids (2&3) on this trip and it will be their first time. We don't want to be with MAJOR spring break crowds. So the weeks we are debating are April 4th-10th, 24th- may 1st, or May 2nd-8th. The past 13 years we've gone for spring break. So I need opinions! Which week would be better? Thank you in advance!

Somewhere on here is a poll about when Spring Break is for people this year. Because Easter is so late, it's kind of spread out all throughout March and April. Plus the Flower and Garden Festival... it might just be busy all around.

But, of those weeks, I would choose May 2nd through 8th. No Spring Break crowds then, F&G festival still going on, and should be relatively nice weather wise, but starting to get into the really hot weather during the day.

May 2nd through 8th is so much better than your other dates.

Weather is nice, spring break crowds are mostly done.

For choice number 2: April 24 through May 1st. But that choice is a far, far 2nd to the first dates because it's more crowded.

We were at Disney May 6-10 this year and it was perfect, fairly low crowds and short SB wait times.

Hands down May 2nd - 8th! We go every year in May! The general rule is not to go the week before Easter or the week after!
