April is a good time of year to visit Disney World because of the guaranteed hot weather, however it's still a good idea to bring a light raincoat as "April showers" can still occur from time to time. Although, you must be aware the crowd levels are very high at this time of year during the Easter weekend and the spring break holiday. The best time to visit is usually at the end of the month because most spring break holidays will be over for schools by then and prices generally tend to be lower.
