March Disney World Crowds Calendars and Advice

Is March is a great time to be at Walt Disney World? Let’s see…

In March, Spring comes to Walt Disney World and that means Flowers and maybe a few people?

March Disney World Crowds

February ends with slow crowds, but that all changes when the calendar turns to March. March starts out a little busy, but when Spring Break hits things get a little crazy.


Dad’s Crowd Calendar Disclaimer


This calendar is based on historical facts, as I know them today. The Walt Disney World Resort is an ever-changing environment and you might find things significantly different from below.


(There, Mr. Dad’s lawyer, are you happy?)

The first week of March, Disney World crowds can be absolutely delightful. (Watch, since Dad suggests this, the first week of March will be packed. The power of Dad…) UPDATE: Yes, the power of Dad. Now the first week of March has become pretty busy. Just because I recommended it one year. (Not really.)


Now you can expect moderate and sometimes heavy crowds all month.

Spring Break

Spring break crowds start arriving right after the first week. The weather is beautiful, the kids get out of school starting in March, Disney World crowds start building from moderate to heavy and sometimes out of control. But it’s still a great time to visit Walt Disney World.

Spring means flowers start popping up. Several years ago, Disney thought it would be a good idea to celebrate spring with a Flower Festival. Good idea.


The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival kicks off in March. The Flower and Garden Festival includes not only flowers, gardens and topiaries, but some really interesting food and some great music.

March Weather

One of the big reasons for big March Disney World Crowds is the weather. March may be the best month of the year weather wise.


The average high in March is around 78° F/26° C. Lows are a comfortable 56° F/13° C. It rains on average 7 days per month. Nice.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Spring flowers, great music, some great weather it all adds up to a bunch of March Disney World Crowds. But it also adds up to a great time at Walt Disney World.
