I have my daughter for Easter this year. My ex has our daughter for school vacation which starts on Good Friday. Would holiday supersede the vacation?
Neither of these "supersedes" the other unless the agreement says so. Since the vacation is uninterrupted time, my (and this is me personally) would think that the vacation would actually trump the holiday, not vice versa. Work with your ex to trade easter for another holiday and resolve this among yourselves if possible. Going to court on this will not be looked favorably by a judge.

The language in the parenting orders governs which takes priority. If the court order does not establish a priority then you and your ex either need to reach an agreement to solve the conflict or address it with the court. First option is the most expedient and cost effective way to handle it. Best wishes.
A properly worded agreement would address this issue. Each has equal force if the agreement is silent on the subject.
