We are booked (as of last week) for April 26-May 3rd.....I'm really hoping for low crowds and nice weather as well. We went the first week in March last year and it was the most crowded I've ever seen...EVER! And the weather was pretty bad....chilly, very windy and cool when you got out of the pools. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a great week!!

We are going the 20th-27th. We chose that in hopes of not melting (we are Canadian) or being trampled by mass crowds. Here's hoping!

What were your dates last year??? We were there 3/4-3/10 and did not experience anything that you experienced. Especially the weather. We thought the weather was perfect pretty much everyday. The crowds really were not too bad either.

BTW we are goin 4/28-5/2 and then hopping on the Dream. Hope all is well with weather and crowds.

We went April 16-21 of 2012. It was definitely more crowded than our October, November or January trips but still not very bad. I'm not a crowd lover and there weren't too many ppl for me to stand it. The weather was great. We didn't get any rain but we were only there 5 days. I think if you went the last week of April crowds would be great because almost all Spring breaks are over by then.

The 7th -- 14th. The first few days were great...then around the 10th and 11th it was bad.....I actually posted about this a few weeks ago...and someone posted the crowd calendar for the week we were there last year....it started out as 6's and then quickly went to 9's and 10's. A friend of mine was there the week before Feb 27-7th and she had amazing weather and NO crowds!

I posted this on the Disney Resort board. For those looking for low crowds, it may not be this time period.

All Star & Carribbean Beach April 25-May 5 (Cheerleaders)

Accommodations is listed on page 11, the five night dates are April 25 - May 1st. Some teams may add additional days.

http://usasf.net.ismmedia.com/ISM2//...eer_Packet.pdf

As some posters have stated they wish they knew about these major cheer competitions... this is one of the major ones, considered the Olympics of Cheerleading. Keep in mind, not every team will choose to stay at these resorts. The visiting spectators will make their own reservations.

There is also "The Summit" at Disney May 4-5. Website thus far only lists the All Star Resort. Again, teams may choose to stay elsewhere.

We plan to go as cheerleading spectators. My daughter loves to meet and take pictures with her favorite "Cheerlebrities."



Want to know more about this competition, here is a good video about one of the Cheerlebrities that CNN did a story about.

This year it should not be too bad as Resurrection Sunday (aka easter) is at the end of March. By mid-April, the park crowds should really settle down.

We are looking at anytime after April 15 and during the first two weeks of May for 2014. Any recommendations? This will be our one and only trip to Florida, so hoping for the lowest crowds and best weather possible in our time frame. Especially since we most likely won't be able to access Fastpasses by then
