Guide to Going to Disney World in April
Crowds at Disney World in April
If you take a look at any of the Disney crowd calendars you will see that April is usually a pretty quiet month to go to the parks.
The only difference for Disney World in April 2020 is that Easter falls in April and this means that many schools will have off the week prior to Easter or the week directly after.
Spring break can be one of the busiest times of the year at Disney World so crowds in April will be impacted those two weeks.
AVOID DISNEY WORLD APRIL 4th-19th 2020
The last week of April would be the BEST time to visit Disney World. You can expect little to no crowds since most people traveled during Spring Break Week.

Weather in Disney World in April
The average temperature in Disney World in April falls between 80°F to 84°F.
It is cool in the mornings but quickly warms up early in the day. I
t is not nearly as humid as in the summer months, so most likely you won’t experience much in terms of rain.
Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t think you should bring a poncho to Disney. I think that the poncho is a must pack item for Disney if not for the rain, for the rides that you might get wet on (Splash Mountain, Kali River Rapids, etc).
What You Should Wear to Disney World in April
When you are creating your packing list, you are going need to know what type of clothes to pack for Disney World.
When travelling to Disney in April, you will want to make sure you pack plenty of shorts and tops.
While the day does start off cool and can also be cooler in the evening, I don’t think you need a sweatshirt or jeans. Instead, I would pack a lightweight sweater or light jacket to cover your arms.
