April gives new meaning to stop and smell the roses … The flowers are beautiful, the weather is lovely, it’s just about the perfect time to visit Walt Disney World.
April Walt Disney World Events
In April there is one big Disney World event. The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival takes center stage. The Festival is complete with some great vintage rock-and-roll bands, beautiful flower exhibits and lectures from celebrity chefs and TV personalities. There’s also the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side (Disneyland gets The Light Side…).
April Crowds at Walt Disney World
The month will start off to heavy to very heavy crowds in all the parks as the last of the Spring Break crowds clear out and the Easter crowds hit the parks. The middle of the month will have weekend locals that will swell the crowds to a fairly heavy level, but the weekdays will be moderately busy.
