Best days in early April
I'm hoping that someone can help me decide on dates for our Disney trip. We plan on visiting the parks for 2 days. Unfortunately they have to be between April 9 and the 13. I know this is a busy time of year to go due to spring break but it's our only option (we've also been there a few days before christmas so I'm prepared). At first, I thought the 9 and 10 would be the best as its during the week but then I thought the weekend might have longer hours -- I really like to get to the parks early to beat the crowds! So, which dates should I choose? We are also really looking forward to seeing Cars Land and riding Radiator Springs Races if that makes any difference in terms of dates.

The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

I would expect the hours for the week you are considering to be comparable to the hours posted last year for the week of April 16. I would guess that DCA might open at 9 AM though rather than 10 AM. I would probably go with weekdays still rather than weekend days. Your week should be better with regard to crowds than the two preceding it since those two weeks are the ones surrounding Easter.
