We are planning a trip to DLR this Sunday for Easter. Something we have never done before. Was wondering if anyone has been before and what kind of crowds should we expect? Also, do they do anything special for Easter?
There is an Alice Easter breakfast. It's $55 for adults. Don't know the children's price.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
Gosh, I know I worked on Easter one year, but I can't remember anything about it. Seems like there was some sort of Easter Egg thing, but i might be rong about that.
Should be crowded though.

We went on Easter two years ago and the place was pretty deserted until 11:30 or so. It was great. We had lunch reservations at Blue Bayou and got great seats, so that was our "Easter meal" of the day. There were no special things happening in the park for Easter.....but on Arbor Day (the same week) the kids got stickers. Go figure.
But that year, Easter was the third week of April. This year, it's right in the middle of two major Spring Break weeks. Oregon's spring break ends on Sunday, Washington's begins this weekend and lasts through next week. Many Cali schools are split around it. I would think it would be pretty crowded.
Attendance may be through the roof this week and next. I check out hotel prices at Hotel.com and some hotels are quoting $300 a night plus rates. Many large hotels around the park are sold out. One 2 star hotel is quoting $1000 a night rooms. Usually, this is not a good sign.
I visited on Easter Sunday last year for my birthday. It was sort of crowded during the day, but most people decided to go home in the afternoon - maybe to enjoy Easter dinner. The crowds started to die at around 3 or 4 and it was pretty leisurely after that. I was pleasantly surprised.
