Easter week/Comfort Stations

So our next Disney venture is 6 nights camping in a rental pop-up before heading on our first Disney Cruise for 3nt over spring break, not sure which part of the trip I'm more excited about!!! Obviously I know it will be busy, we've been to the World twice in the summer months but found the crowds managable with some strategy. We also only plan on one Magic Kingdom day, water parks, mini golf, DTD, and of course down time to enjoy the Fort! But as I lay in bed last night with insomnia, I had sudden images of the comfort stations being overwhelmed and me standing in line with my 2 Dd's for a shower! Again, I'm willing to implement strategies such as bathing the kids at night and hoping to catch non-peak times, but I'm just looking for reassurrance that the stations can accommodate the volume!

The times I've used the bathhouse I have not had an issue. You are correct about using the off-peak times. The most crowded times will be an hour or so before the parks open and probably an hour or two after the parks close.

Sounds like something a camping trip could cure

It would also depend on which loop you were in.

Comfort Stations

We have camped at Fort Wilderness both over the 4th of July week and Easter break. We have a popup but choose a premium loop which is filled with mostly big rigs. We have never experienced a crowded comfort station. Maybe in a loop of mainly tents and popups it might be more of a problem, but we haven't run into it yet.
