    Hi Ikeyla!

    I'm so jealous of your vacation plans.  March is my absolute favorite time to visit Walt Disney World.  Just wait until you see the flowers at Epcot during the International Flower & Garden Festival.  So beautiful!

    Complimentary Disney transportation starts running from the resorts to the theme parks a full hour before the parks open.  If you catch that first bus of the day, you'll certainly be at any of the four theme parks well before "rope drop."  Taxi service is available too but the Disney buses will drop you off closer to the entrance gates at the Magic Kingdom than a taxi could.  Taxis drop off fairly close to the entrance of Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios but they can be very expensive when used frequently.  Perhaps it would be worth pricing a rental car for your travel party.  That option may actually cost you less than frequent cab rides. 

    Since Easter is in April this year, I think you'll find early March theme park attendance at moderate rates.  The weeks before and after Easter will be much heavier.  That's another reason I love to visit in early March.  Attendance rates will climb as more and more spring break visitors arrive but the crowds will still be manageable during your stay.

    Wishing you a truly magical spring visit to Walt Disney World, Ikeyla!
