We went at that time this year and it was great hardly any waits i think the most we waited was around 30 minutes for rock n roller coaster i really like this time of year. The weather is good and there is hardly any rainfall.

WOW Fantastic, im glad you had a lovely holiday.

Im soooo excited now!

Easter is early next year, the beginning of April so thats why we decided to go on 23rd April.

Im not sure if it is Spring Break during this time though

Too late for spring break. Spring break times usually start in late February, March, and then into the first part of April (depending on the date for Easter).

When you are going is great because schools aren't out yet, and it is a nice time of the year before it gets too hot and humid.

You have picked an excellent time to catch the "in between" seasons: after spring break, yet before summer breaks begin.

Weather should be great, crowds should be moderately low, and you should have a wonderful time.

Oh WOW thanks everyone, i am really pleased that we have chosen a good time to go.

I can get away with going on holidays during school time as my daughter dosnt start school until next September.

Means less crowds and cheaper holidays. I dont know what we will do when she starts school! Eeeeeeek!!

Just been reading up about weather, i am glad it wont be over hot when we go.

I dont mind warm, but if its too hot it makes u tierd so quickly and i know that we wont manage doing the parks all day in really hot weather.

You have definately picked a great time to go. We went this year from 24th-1st May and it was fantastic, crowds were low, maybe a little busier on the weekends and the weather was perfect, hot but not too hot and we didnt have a single drop of rain the whole time we were there. Were hoping to go again next year around the same time if we can get a good deal so may see you there. Oh and our dear daughter starts school next September as well, yikes!!!

Thanks everyone, i am sooo looking forward to our very 1st trip to WDW :-D

Hi cfalc27, i am glad you enjoyed your holiday last year ;-)

Im pleased we have chosen a nice time to go.

If you book for next year, we will prob see you there hehe! Theres some good deals out for that time of year next year.

Out of interest i priced up the same holiday, Villa etc for August time and i could not believe that the price actually 'TRIPLED' its very naughty really, not fair on parents with kids at school.

Yes my daughter just missed this school year as she is a November baby, so she will be one of the oldest in her class next year, although like you, i really cant believe my baby is starting school next year, time goes so quickly! Yikes!!
