Disney World Crowds in March 

As you can see from the crowd calendar below, March is a great time to visit Disney World.  All of the days are pretty manageable, as far as crowds go. The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival begins in March and is beautiful. Small Spring Break crowds increase attendance in the middle of the month. 

March Disney World Crowd Calendar

When looking at crowd levels for Walt Disney World it’s generally the case that whatever park has Extra Magic Hours that day, will be the busiest park. If you don’t plan on taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours, then choosing a different park will be the better choice.

Weather at Walt Disney World in March

The weather at Walt Disney World in March is very mild.  The temperatures are warm and the forecast is mostly sunny with a few scattered clouds.   The high temperatures are in the 70s and low 80s.

What to Pack for Walt Disney World in March

Knowing what to pack for a trip in March to Walt Disney World is important. You don’t want to be unprepared and end up having to use your vacation budget on things that could easily have been brought from home with a little planning. Make sure you check out my post on How Amazon Can Save You Money at Disney and The Top 10 Disney Park Bag Essentials! Here are a few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Walt Disney World in February.

Pack an Umbrella, Poncho and Stroller Protection

The weather at Walt Disney World can be unpredictable. Rain storms can form and dissipate quickly. Be prepared with a small travel umbrella or a poncho. A poncho can also come in handy to wear on rides like Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids to keep your clothes dry. If you are taking a stroller with you to Disney World, I recommend bringing a plastic shower curtain liner to cover your stroller while on rides and clothes pins to secure it. I did this on our last vacation and it was a life saver!

Pack Sun Protection

The Florida sun can be brutal, even in the early spring months. Make sure that you are ready for the UV rays by packing some sunblock and a hat. Also make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!

Pack a Travel Blanket

A travel blanket is also a good idea to bring along to Walt Disney World in February. Not only will it keep you warm on those chilly February Disney World nights, but it can also serve another purpose. It can be a great to sit on while watching a parade or fireworks show.

Pack for both Warm and Cold Weather

The mornings and evenings at Walt Disney World can be pretty chilly, but the days will be warm. This makes packing clothing for Walt Disney World in March a little tricky. Pack jeans or long pants to stay warm and comfortable during the cooler temperatures. Wear a short-sleeved top and bring a lightweight jacket or sweater that can be kept in a backpack or worn around your waist during the day.
