April might be a little chilly for beachy stuff, or I'd recommend taking a kite-surfing class or stand-up paddleboard class.
So.,.you can take one of the tours on the Queen Mary...the Ghosts and Legends one is fun and campy, and takes you to parts of the ship you don't see otherwise. Brunch on the ship is also great. The Aquarium of the Pacific is an awesome aquarium. Go on a whale watch or harbor tour from one of the kiosks along Rainbow Harbor. There is a free bus, the red Passport, that takes you to the Queen Mary, Aquarium and Pine Avenue.
Rent a Segway (or a bike) and go along the bike path along the marina and the beach and get to Belmont Brewing Company for lunch by the waves or go window shopping in Belmont Shore. Take an architecture tour...the Art Deco buildings are featured in lots of movies and TV shows (Dexter, CSI Miami, etc.).
At night you can grab a bite on restaurant row...lower Pine Ave...where you can get Greek, Italian, Spanish, Indian, seafood and crepes in a 2-block walk. All great restaurants. Or go up to Cambodia Town (along Anaheim St.) for authentic Cambodian food. Or try At Last Cafe, which was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
You can continue partying until 2am at Sgt. Pepper's Dueling Piano Bar and the Auld Dubliner Irish Pub for drinks and music, or grab a stand-up comedy show at the Laugh Factory (all down by The Pike), or Sevilla and Alegria on Pine for salsa dancing and flamenco shows.
Disneyland and Knott's are about 30 mins away without traffic.
