When to travel


#1

end of february travel or last week in april 2016? , passover is the last week of april and northeast schools are off


#2

If you can avoid traveling at a time when schools are off, I highly recommend it. I'd go with the end of February.


#3

When deciding travel days the Crowd Calendar is always my first stop http://touringplans.com/walt-disney-world/crowd-calendar


#4

Don't love periods when schools are off... but Jan-Feb is the period that sees he most ride refurbs, and the weather is so cool that swimming at your hotel (and the water parks) is chilly.


#5

Massachusetts will be off the week before, but yes, New York and New Hampshire have that week- don't they?


#6

The end of Feb will be post Mardi Gras. Not sure about spring break as I no longer have school age kids. So it should be low crowds. Agree with Brian, look at the CC and see what it looks like. Keep in mind a "slower time" also means shorter park hours.


#7

End of February will be New Hampshire school vacation as well- right?


#8

One thing to bear in mind about school vacations is that the schedules for school systems that can have a significant effect on crowds are taken into account when making the CL predictions. There was a good TP Blog post about this, but I can't find it right now...

EDIT: Found it! They track the 100 largest school districts http://blog.touringplans.com/2015/03/05/spring-break-2015-crowds-walt-disney-world/
