Depends when you are going! Spring break/Easter can be very busy. If you have a rough plan and ADRs you will be good! (my DS break starts March 26 - April 5 and my DDs break is April 1 - April 12). Of COURSE they couldn't be on teh SAME break! LOL! So we are taking a long weekend BEFORE they get out officially (and their Dad returns from an 8 month deployment so I find it excusable to miss two days of school and do the homework)!

A lot of March depends on when Easter falls. This year Easter is the first Sunday in April. Our spring break is March 22-26, two weeks before Easter.

Because so many school systems base spring break around Easter, then the closer you get to Easter, the more crowded it is.

If I could go any time in March, I would pick the first week as it will be the least crowded.

Unfortunately, Spring Break is when we have to go, and for us (and about 25% of the rest of the country), it's the third week of March.

We went the same week last year, and it was crowded, but the weather was fantastic. And we had a great time!

We went on our March Spring Break last year and I found it very manageable.

There were crowds, but thanks to a good plan and FP's we never waited in line for anything.

Same here. We went last year in March as well, we used FPs like you wouldn't believe, I think there wasn't a time where we didn't have a FP in hand. Plus we always looked at the stand by times and if they were more than 30 minutes, then we would move on or get a FP for that attraction. We are going again this March (3/23-3/29) and since Easter is on 4/4 this year, it may be a little more crowded than last year, but if we go into it with the same mentality as last year, then we should be fine. Also, we love the weather that time of year, it is not too hot and not too cold
