What to Expect at Disney World in March

What to Expect at Disney World in March

Disney World in March takes on a spring break vibe. Spring break = mega crowds! Since you are thinking of traveling during this busier time of year, you are going to want to make sure you are diligent in putting together your plan. I recommend using our FREE printable daily Disney World planner.

While this month is busy due to so many Spring Breaks happening at schools around the US, the good news is that at last, Easter has moved again to April, so the insanity of the previous couple of years should subside. Despite the crowds, this is still one of the best times to come to experience Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. During the first week of March, everything for the festival is freshly planted and primped to photographic perfection!

The Weather in Disney World During March

Visiting during this month, it’s essential to keep a close eye on the weather forecast leading up to your trip. The weather, on average, ranges from the 60s to the 80s. It’s a good idea to pack as you would for summer during this month. The temperatures start climbing in March, and it can get quite toasty. Sometimes the early mornings and late evening can get rather chilly; I recommend packing a light coat if you plan on being out during these times. As always, it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast before you leave.

Disney World Events in March

Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival

The Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot is one of my favorite times of the year to visit. Though my allergies will disagree with that statement, it’s worth the sniffles to see the topiaries. The displays are just stunning and something you want to get a chance to experience at least once.

This year the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 4th to June 1st, 2020. Of course, every year, the festivals at Epcot seemingly get longer and longer, and we love it! The festival has a little bit of something for everyone in your family. There is a fantastic lineup of concerts, food booths scattered across Epcot, special tours, and gardening tips and exhibits. For a full look at the Flower and Garden Festival, read our coverage!
