Easter 2012 at Walt Disney World
By Dave Shute
EASTER 2012 AT DISNEY WORLD
2012 Easter crowds (and prices!!) at Walt Disney World will hit a very high peak in the week beginning March 31, 2012, and be as high for most of the week beginning April 7, 2012.
Try your best to avoid Walt Disney World during these two weeks.
For specific 2012 Disney World Easter events (as they are announced)–ranging from where to find the Easter Bunny at Disney World to Easter Sunday services at Disney’s Contemporary Resort–see this page on MouseSavers.com.
For off property Easter services, see this for places of worship near Walt Disney World.
At Walt Disney World itself, typically Easter services are held in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny greet kids at the Magic Kingdom, and Epcot has Easter Egg hunts.
In addition, many Walt Disney World resort hotels hold “candy scrambles” Easter morning.
Check with your resort when you check in for more details.
WALT DISNEY WORLD CROWDS DURING THE EASTER SEASON
Disney World Spring Break crowds are driven by several factors.
The most important is the timing of younger kids’ school breaks, which, while distributed from early March to early May, strongly peaks the weeks before and after Easter.
If you can only attend Disney World during the weeks before or after Easter, use the Easter itinerary.
If you wish to see more on other Spring Break weeks besides those immediately around Easter, see this page.
