Sorry to hear next year is off, but glad your still going back.:hug2:
Never been at easter but my friend went this easter and said it was very very busy. 2 hour waiting lines and fast passes ran out very early in the day. But maybe your used to that I don't know, we never have long lines when we go.

Easter is very busy, Mick. It's nearly as busy as Christmas and has seen the parks (MK) close a time or two.

Not that you can't do it with some planning, but just be prepared. It's a whole different experience from October.

The heat won't be much different, maybe a bit more humidity.

Easter IS a very busy time. We took my dad during Easter one year. Even delaying the trip by a week will make a huge difference.

sorry to hear that Mick.. however, I think its great that you DO have a trip planned.

I agree though, Easter is really busy, because its srping break and easter break in the US, and its also easter break in Mexico and most of Latin America... and most kids get 2 weeks of school!

Last 2 weeks of August was fine Mick - especially the last week as the Florida schools went back on the 25th ish. Even before that it was perfectly managable and a lot better than I thought it was going to be. It is very hot though if thats a factor. :unsure:

Another vote for end of August. We were very surprised at how light the crowds were.

As a rule of thumb we only use Owen's GAC for queues over 30 minutes. The only rides we needed to use it on were Soarin', Toy Story at DHS, Test Track and Space Mountain. The rest were less than that.

TS ride is similar to Buzz Lightyear but way better IMO.

I'd go with the last 2 weeks in Aug. It's hot but lines aren't bad.

We booked a fly drive through Virgin Holidays and it was about 3700 for the 4 of us including car, insurance etc.

The longest queue was Toy Story Mania without a doubt - 90 mins most of the time - the queue for the Fast pass machines was probably 30 mins
:lol: Other than that the usual suspects like Soarin', Everest etc could have an hour or more if that gives you some guide. Other rides like Buzz etc around 15 mins. :yes:

Parks are wonderful during Easter. Lots of fun. See everyone there. Look for the deals at WDW during this time of year.
:yes:

I looked into Easter of 2010 year before I decided on July. I was actually looking at my kids Spring Break week & when I was quoted the points it would cost I was jaw dropped! I said to the CM 'wow!' or something that showed my shock & she said, yeah, that's Easter Week. So I thought d%#n! Just my luck our SB is during EAster. So not only did the thought of crowds scare me off, so did the DVC points I'd have to use!

I have heard the crowds are pretty bad during that time.

rides are not really a problem johnie, as its only the 2 of use i doubt we will do that many

but if crowds are really high then maybe late august would be best....thx :D
