How busy is Disney World in March?

Most of March has heavy crowds due to cheerleading competitions held on property, spring break, and Flower & Garden Festival starting at EPCOT.

When is the best time to visit Disney World in March?

We highly recommend seeing EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival which starts midway through March. The topiaries and flower beds are some of the best in the entire world. You might be able to save on your resort if you stay before the festival starts.

How long does EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival last?

Disney World is very busy for New Years Eve. Every Park besides Disney’s Animal Kingdom has a firework show at midnight. Therefore if you are looking to explore Disney’s Animal Kingdom with lower than average crowds, check it out during New Years Eve!
