Disney now allows you to schedule a time you want to ride a specific ride. My advice is to schedule all your favorite rides so you don't wind up waiting forever to ride it.
Also if it is raining the park will not close. If you know the forecast calls for showers go by a cheaper poncho at the Kissimmee Walmart.
Relax and have fun, and you'll find the memories will be something that brings you happiness for years to come.

This is the first time I’ve been to Disney during Spring Break. It was insanely crowded. This four star review is for the awesome 12:00-2:00 a.m. extra magic hours. Please take advantage of night time EMH if you stay on property. It was cooler, way less crowded and the lines were mostly 30 minutes or less. The morning EMH are good, but full of families with little kids. My teenage daughter loved the after close Extra Magic Hours.

I have seen a lot come and go in the 25 or so times I have been to Disney World. I have raised 11 children and I have 20 grand children. And no matter how many parks the add, The Magic Kingdom will always be the best. I bought another annual pass this year. It’s just such a happy place and the best is seeing the kids eyes light up when they see it for the first time or even like my oldest granddaughter who hasn’t been in several years and she’s 13 yrs old. She was so excited as we walked in the gate she was almost shaking. It’s my favorite because there are more rides there for the whole family.

This is my family’s 5th visit, the first over spring break. We usually come in December, before Christmas. Wow!! The people! So crowded! That said, the cast members were happy and helpful. The park was kept clean. The new “Once Upon A Time,” which is shown on the castle and replaces “Illuminations,” was wonderful. The technology has improved noticeably, and it’s worth stopping the see. The new parade was beautiful, too, and worth seeing. I do hope they bring another electric light parade at some point, as that’s my favorite so far, although the Halloween parade is a close second. Use your fast passes, people! They’re so helpful in insuring you can ride the things more important to you. If you think you’ll be able to go from ride to ride and get on everything, I’d say that’s highly unlikely. Reserve your fast passes as early as possible... like, really early. I don’t recall how soon that is...weeks or months in advance. But, at the very least, days. I also thought this years merchandise was nice. Sometimes, I cannot find anything I’d be interested in. This year, there’s lots. Be sure to buy your mouse ears! Disney is the only place adults can dress and act like children, and it’s welcomed. Wear a tutu if you want, Grandma! Just be sure to wear come shoes! NEVER wear NEW shoes, and cute and all “matchy” is nice and all, but go for comfortable shoes! Your feet will probably still hurt at the end of the day, but you might be able to recover overnight. Bad shoes will ruin your entire vacation. Oh...and sunburn will, too. So slather on the sunscreen!
