WHAT IS MARCH LIKE AT DISNEY WORLD?

Early March can be a great time to go to Disney World, and is so in 2020. The rest of the month will mostly be lousy–with high prices and high crowds.

MARCH 2020 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

March crowds begin at moderate levels  but quickly skyrocket, following the patterns of 2020 spring breaks.

On a crowd scale of 1-11, the week beginning 2/29 has a ranking of 6/moderate, 3/7 7/ moderate-plus, 3/14 10/higher, and 3/21 8/high-minus.

MARCH 2020 RESORT HOTEL PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

March hotel prices bump around quite a bit.

  • Resort hotel prices begin the month 25-30% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 15-20% higher at the moderates, and 20-25% higher at the deluxes,
  • Prices go up 3/6 to 35-50% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 25-30% higher at the moderates, and 30-45% higher at the deluxes.
  • On 3/22, prices drop a bit, to 25-30% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 15-20% higher at the moderates, and 20-25% higher at the deluxes.
  • On March 29, prices go up to 35-50% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 25-30% higher at the moderates, and 30-45% higher at the deluxes, and stay at this level for the first few days of April

MARCH 2020 TICKET PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

March 2020 Disney World ticket prices have no low dates. Early and late in the month we see some average prices, but most of the month sees higher Disney World ticket prices.

See the image–where green is good, and lots of green particularly good, and red is bad, and lots of red is particularly bad.

Deals for the general public are available for March 2020. You can find them here.

MARCH 2020 WEATHER AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

March weather shifts from the variable and cooler temperatures of winter to the higher and more predictable temperatures of spring.

For example, at the beginning of March, 80% of the time the daily high will be 70 or better, but it will be higher than the lower 80s only 20% of the time. By the beginning of May, 80% of the time the daily high will be 80 or warmer, and it will be 90 or higher 20% of the time.

Tornadoes can be an issue during this period. See this for more.

DISNEY WORLD SPECIAL EVENTS IN MARCH 2020

The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will begin March 4th and continue through June 1.

MARCH 2020 OPERATING HOURS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Park operating hours vary by the day, and sometimes change without notice. It is rare for hours to be shorter than Disney has publicized, but Disney may lengthen them in response to unanticipated crowds. Opening hours may change to 8a.

The best way to keep up with operating hours is to check Disney’s official calendars, usually available about six months in advance. Major hours updates–often with later closes–can happen a month before.

These calendars can be found by clicking this link.
