If you need ANY tips or tricks on how to survive just Private Message me and I will be more than happy to share and to answer any questions.

Also I know that the week after easter some schools around DLAND are on spring break and the Socal pass is unblocked so that may pose a problem but not sure how much of an impact it will have
Hey disneyfreak202 my family is coming to Disneyland April 29- May2. Everything I have read is that it will be not crowded. I was wondering your opinion on that? I would never go during spring break but I know schools will be back in.

Spwhoney: Schools around DLAND are back in, spring break is over, I think it will be fine. Possibly a few crowds but not as crazy as spring break but not as empty as Jan. would be. I know colleges are still in session. Should be a good time to go.

DH just found out that he got his vacation time approved!!!!
We are leaving on 3/23 and staying in Carlsbad. We are going to Legoland and Safari Park (first time) from 3/23-3/25. Then we are going to DISNEYLAND!!!!
We are staying at the Hyatt from 3/25-3/29, can't wait. It will be our first time at Disneyland during Spring Break but we have been there during Christmas time and summer when Carsland opened so we are prepared for the crowds.

So in the next few weeks it will officially be spring break time at dland. I consider next week to be the start of it myself but everyone starts it differently. I'm heading to the parks next week one day (havent decided which yet) around 1 so I can let you know how crowds are looking for those coming in the next few weeks during the week.

Granted it could get crazy busy fast over the next few weeks. SoCal Passes being blocked out the last week of march and 1st week of april will help out though hopefully

Thanks in advance for the info! In general, do most AP holders buy the SoCals vs. Premium/Deluxe? I know the general mix is much different than Florida, sounds like the majority of guests are always "locals."

Awesome, awesome! I feel like I've been planning this trip FOREVER, now I'm starting to panic I don't have time to get everything done!

Do you already have your tickets/APs? I'm trying to decide if I should buy in advance or buy onsite at the hotel. I probably won't do ARes - I could save $20 on the 4 tickets, but if I use my Disney Visa on Disney purchases I"ll get about $200 in reward dollars, so we'll probably buy direct (vs. $100 if we buy from ARes).

Any downside to waiting to buy at the hotel?

I think it's a mix. However with prices raising last year a lot of people who I know including myself went from always getting a deluxe to getting a SoCal to save money
