4 Reasons to Visit Disney World During Spring Break

by | Apr 2, 2024 | Typhoon Lagoon, WDW Blog

You’ve probably heard you should avoid Disney World for spring break. But, we’re sharing four reasons to consider visiting Walt Disney World Resort instead!  

Spring break at Disney World is often advocated as a time to avoid. From the crowds to the kids and everything in between, it’s considered one of the most hectic times of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. 

Why to Visit Disney World During Spring Break

But what if we told you there are some great benefits to visiting the resort during this time of year? We’re here to tell you our top four reasons to visit Disney WOrld during Spring Break. If you decide to visit during spring break, we also have plenty of tips on how to avoid Disney World spring break crowds!

EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival

Springtime at Disney signals two things: Spring Break Crowds and the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. From gorgeous topiaries to delicious food, this festival shouldn’t be missed. While this festival does run for a few months, spring break is a great time to visit. 

Nothing beats a stroll around the World Showcase while being able to see some amazing Disney-themed topiaries (which you can read more about in this issue of WDW Magazine). This year, in 2024, some must-do topiaries you should check out include the all-new Wish movie topiary at the front of Spaceship Earth, Figment with Flowers at the back of Spaceship Earth, and an adorable Groot over at Guardians of the Galaxy. 

But that’s only a few of the things to check out during this blooming festival. The Garden Rocks Series at the America Gardens Theater is also in full swing, entertaining such as The Pointer Sisters. 

For some more information about the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, check out these posts:

Comfortable Weather

Aside from the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, the weather is another perk of spring break. While it’s not fully summer yet, the temperatures are definitely rising, creating a perfect combination of comfort. 

Expect average temperatures in the high 70’s. Plus, the chance of rain in March is actually super low, so it’s a perfect time to use those resort swimming pools to your benefit and avoid the crowds. With that said, you can expect some cooler weather in the mornings or at night, but it’s so comfortable. This makes navigating crowds and walking around the theme parks really comfortable. 

After Hours Events

Another perk of visiting during Spring Break is attending a coveted Disney After Hours Event. That’s right; during spring break, parks such as EPCOT host After Hours events. These events are a great way to visit and ride your favorite attractions without the wait.

These events typically take place between 10 PM and 1 AM and allow guest access to rides such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and even Frozen Ever After. Plus, ice cream, popcorn and bottled beverages are all included in the price of your ticket. Talk about a great deal! 

While you do have to pay extra for this, it’s a great event to consider if you are visiting during Spring Break since that’s the time of high crowds typically. 

Typhoon Lagoon is Open

After a hiatus, Typhoon Lagoon is open. From the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool to the Crush ‘n’ Gusher and Miss Adventure Falls, Typhoon Lagoon has fun available for the whole family. Since both water parks aren’t open at the same time, if you are a Typhoon Lagoon lover, this is the time to visit. 

Hours at Typhoon Lagoon are quite long, making this a great escape from the theme parks. While crowds are quite high, we recommend spending some time over at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for some fun in the water and just a bit of relaxation.
