    This will be our family's 21st Disney vacation on property. We have stayed at all values, mods and AoA. We usually travel in January. I have done a lot of research about the first week of April 2014 and Spring Break crowds. I have found that 70% of schools have their break the week before or after Easter. This leaves 30% to have their break at another time, like us, which is always the first week in April. My concern is not actually the Easter crowds, but the possible cheerleaders or a sports groups. We really want to stay at ASMu but are afraid the resort might be too busy. Our favorite mod is POFQ and I know it would not attract tour groups. However, I do like to be conservative with my money and POFQ is $700 more.(Using rack rates before AAA or any other possible specials) I would love to put that money toward our food budget.

    What do y'all think? I looked at the Disney sport schedule and didn't see anything. Is there anything I am missing?

    I'm trying to decide the same thing. Our spring break is then as well. My daughter is 2 and I keep going back to where we stayed when we took our son on his first trip...AllStar Movies. Since then, we've gone three more times and stayed deluxe each time. I know she will adore the TS section, but I keep asking if we will be happy there?
