With the arrival of March, spring is officially in the air -- and the theme parks are hopping! Many families take advantage of their respective spring breaks to make the visit to Disney World in March. After all, after the chill of winter, the prospect of a springtime visit to sunny Orlando warms us right up!
We like March in the theme parks, because there are all sorts of spring-y events, including Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival, Universal's Mardi Gras, and SeaWorld and Busch Gardens' Bands, Brew & BBQ are some of our favorites. For sports fans, the Atlanta Braves Spring Training is in full swing at ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Disney World.
With spring break, March is one of the busiest months of the year. Because of staggered school spring break schedules across the country, crowds are high normally starting after the first week in March. We highly recommend you plan for higher crowds. Make sure to follow the advice outlined in the SECRET to Avoiding Disney World CROWDS and get to the park ahead of opening. Download our wait-time apps before you leave home.
To make planning easier, our Crowd Calendar is available a full year out! We recommend you check the Crowd Calendar when you begin planning your trip to find the best travel dates and then revisiting it again as you get closer to your actual trip to pick the recommended park by day.
In March, temperatures are on the rise, with an average high of 78 and a low of 60. There will be plenty of warm days and very low rainfall chances, so don't forget the swimsuits. You might still need a jacket for the evenings and mornings. Here is the packing list for this time of year.
There are a ton of events happening in March. Here’s the rundown of what’s happening this month. Be sure to check out special events pages for Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando for full details.
