WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- An early Easter means less time to book Spring break travel.

"In this more compact travel season with this high demand, we typically see that the hotel rooms and the airfare seats book out sooner," says Orbitz Senior Editor Jeanenne Tornatore.

According to the travel Website, the top Spring break destination for families is Orlando, home of Walt Disney World.

For alternatives,Orbitz recommends the beaches of Saint Petersburg, Florida, family-friendly resorts in the Bahamas and London, which is still in its off season.

Cruises are popular. And the recent drama on the Carnival Triumph has done little to curb bookings.

Tornatore says, "We haven't seen any changes in terms of bookings or cancellations due to recent events, and think that it's still one of the most popular vacations out there right now. People are still taking advantage of the deals they can find."

Although we're experiencing the tail end of Winter weather, you should still plan for possible disruptions.

"Even if you're planning on heading to somewhere like a great warm weather destination, you want to prepare yourself for any connections that may cause you trouble and make sure that you have anything you really need for 24 hours packed with you in your carry on," says Orbitz.com's Tornatore.
