    We are planning a trip for March 5-10 of 2016. I have seen mixed information about whether these dates have large crowds or not. Thanks for any info Moms Panel!

    Hi Casie,

    Ah how sometimes I wish I had a crystal ball!  I will chime in with my opinion about the crowd level during this time period but please keep in mind that at the end of the day it really just is an educated guess and many Guests like you are still deciding upon their plans for next year.  Having given my "broken crystal ball disclaimer", I believe the crowd level during the period early March 2016 will be considered moderate.  My reasoning is because early March is a popular time for spring break for many schools, but it is still early in the overall spring break season for the entire United States.  Historically spring break crowd levels continue to rise throughout March and will usually peak late March and will also peak during the weeks surrounding Easter.  Since Easter next year is also in March, specifically March 27, I do not think you will experience the high crowd level in early March like you will experience during Easter, but neither will you have very low crowd levels because it is during spring break season.  Therefore my estimation is the crowd level will remain moderate throughout the early part of March.

    If this is your first visit or if you have not visited recently you will be happy to know that even during very popular timeframes you can still have a magical and memorial vacation.  Since Guests are now able to make FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance (and Resort hotel Guests up to 60 days in advance), your family can spend more time making memories and less time waiting in line.  If you combine your FastPass+ selections with some of our suggested vacation strategies which we discuss in here with this Panel such as arriving to the theme parks prior to opening you will not be bothered by heavy crowd conditions.
