BTW... just got an email from TouringPlans, the crowd levels for end of April have all dropped by at least a point or two!!! Most days are now 4-5 instead of 6-7. I'll take that!!!
I think the smaller crowds are going to be a shock to our systems! We usually go during some of the busiest times during the year. I am so excited!!!

We booked room-only, so we won't make our final payment until we check in.

We were there in 2009 and the weather was nice. If anything, I thought it was a bit warmer than I expected.

We booked room only for the 1st time (usually do package), but ironically I actually paid this off even before the package payment would have been due....I'm so anal/OCD about having balances due, I couldn't handle it anymore and had to pay it off.

we have been the last few Aprils, and yes its beautiful! hardly any rain and if it does it was a downpour then it stopped. Warm but not overly humid. One day last april though I was freezing in Epcot! I needed a fleece it was windy and I was cold! anyone that was there heard me crabbing in search of a hot coffee near canada!

I think we were there the same week and our Epcot day was SO. HOT. I even gave in and bought DS one of those way overpriced spray fan bottles for like $100......or whatever ridiculous amount they charge, lol.

As far as weather goes...our last trip was the last half of July.....that was HOT.

I am very much looking forward to April weather.

Double digits for me too!!!

And I don't even want to discuss my balance. I'm getting nervous about my February deadline. Fingers crossed for a fabulous tax refund. That's always our vacation money.

I would imagine a LOT cooler and a lot less rain than in August. I remember going in August once years ago... I swear it was like 120 degrees (well, that's what it felt like)

It was pretty hot! Didn't rain as much as they had predicted, which was nice, but it did rain a few times. I'm happy it'll be a bit cooler and drier this time around! Maybe I'll be less sweaty and gross lol

We spent this same week last year in Panama City. The weather was nice and breezy in the morning and never got ridiculously hot. There were many afternoons I was sitting by the pool in a hoody because it was so breezy.

We're also from Georgia and usually go in June, so I'm excited about an average high of 80.

83 days to go. Found flights for my parents from Long Island, and for my brother out of DC at great rates. Found a low rate for DH and I to get TO Disney, but the flights back are insane. Clearly Disney is telling me to move there and get a job instead of returning to Philly!!
