    I am trying to plan a vacation to WDW in either November or March, was wondering if there's any reason to purchase the water park option during those months or if the weather will not be warm enough?

    Hi Tara,

    I was in Disney about three years ago during early November and it was very warm.  In fact, we spent two out of our five days visiting Blizzard Beach and much of the other time in Uzima Pool at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (where we were staying at the time.)  While temperatures during that particular trip were unusually warm, average November and March temperatures are actually quite similar to each other, with highs in the mid to high 70s and lows in the mid to high 50s.  While the weather in a particular year, month or week can vary from historical averages, I would use averages as one factor in deciding how to allocate your vacation time.  Obviously your own ideas about "ideal" or even tolerable swimming weather and the place the water parks falls on your family's preference list should be considered.

    I might also consider buying either Magic Your Way Base or Park Hopper Tickets and consider upgrading to add the Water Parks and More Option once you arrive when you can watch local forecasts and finalize your itinerary's details.

    Whatever you decide, both November and March are great months to visit.  The moderate temperatures make traversing the parks delightful.  Have a great trip!
