Here is some helpful tips and information for vacationers that are looking into visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the month of March 2016!
The top three questions that everyone always asks is; how’s the weather, is it crowded and how much will it cost me? Well keep reading because I’m about to tell you!
During the month of March you will experience some average crowd levels and some times pretty heavy crowd levels as well as some warm and cool temperatures. I like to say that March is the kind of weather when it’s winter in the shade but summer in the sun?
– Holidays/Events –
There is only one Holiday throughout the month of March and that is Easter. Pretty much all of the schools are out for their Spring Breaks throughout the month of March and on into early April. Easter falls on March 27th this year so expect the heaviest of crowds for March to be somewhere around that time.
March is also the start to EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival. The event is free with your admission ticket into the park. You will have to bring extra cash to purchase the food and drink that is limited to this event only. To find out more about the Flower and Garden Festival click here.
– How’s the Weather? –
Like I said earlier, March’s weather is when it’s winter in the shade and summer in the sun. You can expect to have a pretty chilly morning and evening with a very warm midday. You might even pack a bathing suite and try out your resort’s pool! The National Weather channel has a average high for Central Florida at 78 and the low at 56.
– Advanced Dining Reservations & FastPass+ –
If you are planing on getting advanced dining reservations you will need to book your reservations 180 Days from your arrival date in order to get your First choice restaurants. Your 180 Days out mark for March vacations is in September.
Also, if you are staying on property you can reserve your FastPass+ 60 Days before your arrival date. Your 60 Days out mark for March vacations will be in January.
– Let’s Do the Math! –
