While there are no exact dates for Spring Break at Walt Disney World Resort, this time period is largely framed around public school Spring Break dates, as well as Easter calendars. Crowds in the four Walt Disney World theme parks, especially in the Magic Kingdom, can swell to capacity. This often causes theme park reservations to not be available during this time period.

During this busy time of the year, Disney employees a number of strategies to disperse crowds. This includes offering additional entertainment at alternative parks other than the Magic Kingdom, as well as opening or offering seasonal restaurants or additional dining options.

Top Tips For Visiting Walt Disney World During Spring Break

  • Make sure to make Spring Break Disney Park Pass Reservations early. This is especially true if you want to visit the Magic Kingdom.
  • While visiting during the Spring Break time frame, consider purchasing Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane options. This will allow you to potentially get on attractions quicker,
  • Guests looking to dine should make Advance Dining Reservations 60 days in advance. This is especially true for popular restaurants. In addition, Guests will want to utilize Mobile Ordering at counter service locations. This is due to the fact that standby ordering will see extremely long lines at most locations.
  • Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels should take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry. This opportunity allows entry into all four Walt Disney World theme parks up to 30 minutes early, giving you the chance to experience popular attractions before most Guests even arrive to the park.
