April at Disney World
Fantastic weather with peak crowds and prices for part of the month, and low crowds with moderate prices the other part of the month

April often starts off busy for a couple of weeks due to Easter and Spring Break crowds and then ends with light crowds.

Some tips for traveling in April at Disney World:

  • Traveling to Disney World during a busier time means you have to be extra diligent about having a good touring plan. As long as you're zigging while other people zag, you'll do fine.
  • Weather in April at Disney World varies from nice to warm. Check the forecast before your trip so you'll know what to pack.

  • Tips from our ground crew

  • - In general, we recommend avoiding parks with Extra Magic Hours (EMH) because they tend to be hte busiest parks that day.
  • - Magic Kingdom usually sees a surge on Saturdays, so other parks are usually a better choice.
  • - Exception: Animal Kingdom because it's usually not too bad, even on EMH days.
