    Does much happen at easter time, and is it very busy?
    In particular the easter half term? That's when we are planning to go in 2010.

    Re: Easter Time

    Well, yes. It is quite busy at Easter as it is encompassed by Spring Break. There isn't too much special in particular for Easter itself, but you'll run into the random egg hunt here and there. One year they had one in EPCOT, and one year at the Swan.

    You'll want a plan, at least an idea of where you want to go each day, and what you want to see in each park.

    Don't forget those blasted ADRs if your family wants table service.

    You'll be fine!

    Re: Easter Time

    Easter is a really expensive time to book flights Josh. We thought about Easter but it was actually cheaper for flights in December, although we are going before the school holidays though.

    Re: Easter Time

    It's very very annoying, my dad is factory manager in park hampers and he can't get any time off around christmas time, my mum works in a school and can't get any time off... knew I should get parents with better jobs.

    Is it more expensive/busy than July?

    Can't speak to the expense, but it would be nearly as busy. Depending of course when you came. Fourth of July week (it's a Saturday next year) can be jammed nearly as much as Christmas.

    The summer holidays are cheaper than Easter. I wouldn't go as soon as the school holidays start though, it's normally chaos at the airports.

    We've been in July at the beginning though and it was nice. We stayed clear of the parks though on the 4th July.

    Oh, we where there from 2nd july-17th of July so it was pretty much full.
    She has a week off school in feb, but she can't get the week before that off too

    Is June a nice enough time to go? my uncle went in June (whilst I was at home with his sick dog, I was scared out of my wits something was going to happen!) and said the longest q was 30 mins.

    June isn't bad. Not all schools are out yet for the summer and the queues don't get terribly long.

    We were there a couple of weekends ago (or more, sometime in June) and walked on Splash Mountain, BTMR, PoC... we didn't get there at opening either.

    Re: Easter Time

    Sounds like it just might work ok for you. The rain in the afternoon usually starts in June, so be prepared for that. It would be happening in July too, so no big deal, eh?

    Get some Crocs and a Poncho and you're good to go!
