How busy in Mid-March???

Ok, I may be a glutton for punishment, but DD and I are going to Disneyland March 13-17. We'll land in LA late Sunday night and plan on spending M-W at the parks. How crowded can I expect it to be? I know it's Spring Break season and even though So Cal may not be on break then, other places will. Anyway, just trying to get an idea from others who've gone around the same time in previous years. We are so excited!

Spring break is pretty busy. Although the question is kinda subjective.

This poll is showing that mid march should be the peak of spring break.

Where will you be coming from? If from the Central or Eastern time zone the time zone difference will be your friend. (easy to get up & at 'em)

Even if the parks are packed (normally not till after 10am or 11am), one can be very productive the first couple of hours of the day....especially if you are one of the first thru the turnstiles & have a good FP & touring plan.

Read all of HG's FP threads.

Have a great time at Walt's park.

Yep, we are coming from Arkansas, so time will be on our side...except when we land in LA...will be 11:30 our time But we plan on being at the park good and early each day! We've got a pretty good plan so far...what we want to ride, shows to see, where we want to eat, etc. I've read on some other forums that March may not be as crowded as usual since a lot of spring breaks are closer to Easter, which isn't until late April this year. Will be fun either way!
