Well....like I said, we don't really use them. I only happened upon a few several weeks ago when I was trying to get the park hours, and they were all 4's. I just looked some of them up again and see 4,5, and 6's.
We are there 4/18-4/28. Either way, it's still much better than the 10's we are used to!

April 13 Blizzard Beach. counter service Lunch, Dinner Sanaa or Cape May

April 14 DHS/ Epcot. Dinner Biergarten

April 15 Typhoon Lagoon. counter service lunch Dinner? any suggestions?

April 16 AK/MK Lunch Tusker House. Dinner Columbia Harbour

April 17 MK/Epcot lunch BOG, Dinner Tutto Italia

April 18 AK/Epcot lunch back at AOA. Dinner Chefs De France.

April 19 swim AOA lunch Lof, flight out??? or next morning ?? Not sure yet here.

really depends on if we leave the 19th or 20th.. wondering if we should eat in MK on our arrival day since we are arriving later?? Save travel time and move the Ohana to a different day?

i was just looking at them yesterday and didn't remember seeing any 4s so that's why I was wondering if there was a calendar that I didn't know about. I'm fine with 5-6s, definitely better than 10s!

Undercover Tourist only has one 4 now (on 4/24) and the rest 5 and 6's.
Your first visit to WDW website actually shows 1,2, and 3's and shows most of April as the best time to visit all year!!!

Well, I just looked at something on the first post and realized that more of us are arriving in the third week (April 14 - 20) than any other week in the month. I am hoping that this is because we are DISboarders and know the ins and outs of planning a Disney vacation. We know that crowds go down the week after the week after Easter, right? Somebody tell me I'm right!

there's a spring break poll out there someone and I believe that week was one of the *least* popular weeks out of all of March and April. At least it was the last time I looked

Well, there are alot of us New Englanders on this thread, which is when all of our spring breaks appear to be scattered through, so that might explain it.

Our school vacation week is actually 4/22-4/26, but we are taking the girls out for 1.5 days to arrive on 4/18...

We do the exact same thing... We have the last week of April and always pull our boys out for two days so we can get a jump start on our vacation by leaving on Thursday.

Just booked the WDW portion of our trip so it feels more real now! Booked the Nemo section. Used my new Southwest Visa so hopefully I'll be able to work something out for flights with the rewards. probably not gonna tell the kids 'til right before again. First trip we went the last week of February so we surprised them on Valentines Day. This year we'll probably do the same on Easter. This past year when just ODS and I went, I didn't tell him 'til that morning as we were about to get in the car.

My official trip dates for the first post are:

4/13-4/18 - AoA
4/18-4/21 - Disney Dream
