How busy April ??

I am trying to sort out dates for my girly trip with my daughter and it looks like the only week we have free is mon-fri 29th April. This is during UK school time but have found out its zone c's French spring holidays and a bank holiday on 1st may
Was hoping it wouldn't be busy after a really really busy Xmas trip where we didn't get to ride hardly anything!
Is this week a definite no go?
Also this week we can get 4 nights in disneyland hotel direct with disney for £1126 which I think is a really good deal? We do have APs but seems more expensive through expedia etc.
really want to get something booked before the deal ends but not sure what to do now?

I don't speak from experience but yes I would expect that week to be especially busy. Are you restricted to school holidays or can you go anytime? If it were me I be trying to postpone until May half term or later in the year.

The does sound pretty good for 4 nights at the DLH. You probably know this, but is that price just for one person? As you have APs you only have to book for one and add the other one at check in.

The 1st of May will be busy yes as it's May Day and no one works unless they are in a service industry and can't get out of it and the school holidays are on for zones b/c ...but it's not like Christmas where every European country is on holiday and therefore can go to DLP

Thank you for the replies! No I am not restricted to school holidays, want to go in term time which it is in the UK that week.
Ahh can't decide what to do now seems like a really good offer for the DLH but don't want to spend all holidays queuing!

Have checked diary and could do the week before that but looks like they will still be on holiday but not the bank holiday. Another option I have is the 13th May? Anyone know of any holidays in this week

13th would be good as all 3 French zones will be back at school - Paris etc is off from the 27/4-13/5

Public holidays in May this year are the 1st/8th/9th/20th

Question

Sorry to hijack the thread but my question is related so I thought it better to post here rather than start another.

Our APs run out on 11 April so we're thinking of squeezing another trip in before then.

When would be the best times to visit in March/early April?

Are there any particularly busy times?

Also, there seem to be a lot of ride closures in March - is April likely to be better?
