A Disneyland Spring Break in 2022 is a great choice for couples and families with older kids. Springtime has plenty of exclusive events and themed celebrations.

Best Universal Spring Break 2022 Destinations

Dear Harry Potter enthusiasts, Spring Break can be a crowded time at the park, so we recommend heading for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley first. Enjoy a butterbeer for us!
Universal City, CA
Universal Studios Hollywood is home to some of the classic attractions such as The Simpsons Ride, Jurassic World, and Revenge of the Mummy. With its recent additions of Despicable Me and the Secret Life of Pets, it’s a park perfect for those who aren’t fans of the humidity in Florida and still love entertainment.
It’s located in gorgeous Southern California. Spend a day or two at the park and then head to the infamous Venice Beach about an hour away.

Myrtle Beach is both budget-friendly and a blast for the whole family. The city has beautiful beaches, boardwalks with arcade games and thrill rides, and plenty of museums to explore.
Myrtle Beach is also known for its delicious foods. Be sure to research what the local favorites are for its signature South Carolina dishes.
Amelia Island, FL
Escape to the sunny, sandy beaches and quaint town of Amelia Island for a relaxing Spring Break 2022 vacation. Nearby Fernandina Beach has shallow waters and public playgrounds to keep your little ones safe and entertained.

Spring Break isn’t too far away… we say as we stare longingly at our computer screens full of amusement rides and bright beaches. So, we plan instead!
You can expect larger crowds at any Disney or Universal park during Spring Break, but due to COVID-19 health and safety measures, we don’t anticipate it will be as packed as in recent years. Disney World is expected to limit capacity to 35 percent. That being said, we suggest you grab your tickets before they go!
