Is Disney World Crowded in March?
March can be a great time to visit Disney World, with most days typically being pretty manageable as far as crowds go.
Crowds at Disney World have been steadily increasing recently, but that doesn’t have to stop you from experiencing the magic of the parks!
Spring Bread crowds will increase attendance from mid-March through the end of the month.
How to Beat the Crowds at Disney World in March
Although there will be some crowded days in March, there are some things you can do to maximize your time in the parks and lessen your time waiting in line.
Although it annoys me to no end, I recommend purchasing Genie+ to get the most bang for your buck. Genie+ has replaced the old Fastpass+ system, but at a cost of $15 per person per day.
This service will allow you to select a return time for certain attractions to avoid waiting in the stand-by line. You can read more about Disney Genie+ here.
Another strategy to beat the crowds, is to rope drop, which means arriving to the parks about 30 minutes before it officially opens to be able to get started right away.
Visit on a Weekday
This strategy can vary by week, but in general, visiting the parks Monday-Friday will have lower crowd levels than on Saturday or Sunday.

Here are a few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Walt Disney World in March.
Pack an Umbrella, Poncho, and Stroller Cover
The weather in Orlando can be very unpredictable. Rain storms can appear and disappear quickly.
If you are taking a stroller with you to Disney World, I recommend purchasing a stroller rain cover or bring along 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!
What to Wear to Disney World in March
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.
I would pack jeans or lightweight leggings to stay warm and comfortable during the cooler temperatures.
Wear a cute short-sleeved top and bring a light jacket or sweater that can be kept in a backpack or worn around your waist during the day.

Right now, there is not an official list of closed rides from Disney. For current information check Disney World’s website.
March can be a great time to visit Walt Disney World with smaller crowds and warm weather. Just make sure you are prepared for the potential rain and plan accordingly with my tips above.
