There are plenty of people who have expendable income to travel.
You know my thoughts on the Easter/Spring Break season. As everyone has said, plan but do remain very flexible. Taking a break is great, midday. Particularly if you have the sort of accommodation that allows you to return to it and have a lunch. We always plan breaks when we have someone with us who is under ten or so. It can make all the difference.
You'll be fine, honestly. It's busy sure, but it's busy the other times of the year you mentioned, as well. One of the benefits of Easter time is that the weather "should" be nicer. Not so very hot, and not the seasonal rain of summer. Humidity should be pretty ok, too.
Bringing Ben for the first time will be the wonderful part of it all.
No quiet times? Well, all that depends upon who you ask. According to a few friends we have who work for WDW in different capacities, there is a 'thought' out there that WDW is bit like a huge train. Tough to get going, but once you do it's full steam ahead. Then, of course it's equally difficult to stop. There is some feeling that the "economy" and all its ills will catch up with WDW, it's just that the full steam ahead momentum is still in effect.
There is a pretty strong feeling that with WDW's perceived "turning its back on the locals" that the train may take a slow down hit. We'll see.
There are slower times, but they are harder to predict.
This is very interesting Tink, a very different point of view too
Well we will make the best of what we get. Can't expect quiet but if we are well prepared and book a ton of ADRs then we should be ok. If it all gets too much we will just retreat to the villa/hotel.
Pretty sure the last couple of times we went the WL was pretty much full to capacity anyway so presumably they can't get much busier than we knew it anyway.
We tend to have our meals early right from day 1 anyway so that won't be a problem. Character meals are an absolute must book.
See? You've already got it well in hand.
