Hmmmmmmm like your name . . .Anyways, just some quick advice: We went to WDW last Spring Vacation which happened to start on Good Friday. We went the previous year the week after Easter. Here is the difference: Last year (Easter Week) We arrived on Good Friday and left the following Friday. WDW was extremely crowded, BUT, I enjoy Disney no matter what the crowd situation. Yes, you had to wait in longer lines, and yes it was a little harder to get PS's at the times you wanted (should of done that before I left) I learned from my mistakes. BUT, you cannot beat the weather in April and my children are older and could handle the waits. In 1999 we went during Spring Vacation which happened to be after Easter, and the parks were DEAD, no waiting, hardly any crowds, same beautiful weather. Hope this helped a bit.

Two differnt years we went right before Easter and left on Palm Sunday (the sunday before Easter) and found the weekend before Easter to really get a lot busier..so I would say the saturday of Palm Sunday weekend is when we noticed the big crowds starting to arrive...
