We have done Easter week several times. You have to do rope drop if you want to get on several rides. We would get to the park early every morning, finish around 11:30-12, get lunch, go back to the resort. Then back to the parks for fireworks.

If you show up at the parks at 10 or 11am, you will face hour waits for every ride. So use your Magic hours!

ps, I wouldn't do holidays if I wasn't staying onsite. You need the EMH to survive.

1999 and never again!

We got engaged that trip. We arrived the Saturday before Easter, the week before. The beginning of the trip the crowds were fine. I noticed it a bit more crowded on Holy Thursday and then Good Friday. I remember being in the MK Saturday before Easter. We left early! We weren't married, had no kids so it was just dh and I. The lines were horrible. I had always gone and closed the park, never left early. Every ride had a long line.

So I said never again (unless I get an all expense paid trip!). We are headed to fl this April and our April vacation ends on Easter, well the Monday as long as there is no S or no Hs in the forecast!

I looked for one night at the poly, no park on the day we get there (taking the auto train) so my kids could swim. That was before I found out the pool was going to be closed or possible be closed. But with the 35% off it was still to pricey. I looked at the BC for the pool and the same sticker shock. Oh well, we will stay for free at my sisters and go to the beaches down there. I just can't afford anything other then value season these days and we only like the poly.

I agree with this. I've gone many times at Easter time and the trade off of the crowds for the better weather is worth it. We usually go in the summer and have to deal with the heat. I wouldn't hesitate to go at Easter!
