I agree, March would be the better date. Up here in the Northeast, grade schools (k-12) also have their April break on the 2nd week of April and it seems like every other child when asked what you're doing on break they say "my parents are taking me to Disney". The school year up here goes from Labor Day to late June. With 1 week breaks in December (Xmas to New year's), February (usually 3rd week), and April (usually 2nd week). I've always stayed away during those weeks. The best week I've ever spent in WDW based on crowds was a week beginning in late April that ran into early May. Easter had passed, Spring break was over, all schools (local and afar) were still in session,..... Rates were still good, lines were pretty non-existent, dining reservations were plentiful, weather was fantastic, and what made it greater was that I brought my entire family down including parents and in-laws and I looked like a genius because the plans worked so perfectly.
