The Florida sunshine is simply gorgeous (and warm!) during springtime at Walt Disney World. Flowers, smiles, and magical experiences are blooming in every park and resort.

And as spring arrives, pastel colors explode! It’s a whimsical time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth.

Also, springtime in Walt Disney World brings the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Spring Break, Easter, and the Star Wars Half Marathon.

Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival

Even before the official start of the season, Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival gets underway. It’ll be offered February 28 through May 28 this year. I can’t wait to see what’s blooming this year.

Here, you’ll want to dig into the tasty bites at the Outdoor Kitchens. Or listen to a concert. My favorite part of the festival? The stunning topiaries! This event is fun for all ages.

Spring Break

Spring Break is a popular and thus crowded time to visit WDW; this makes the month of March very crowded. You’ll find springtime touring less chaotic in 2018 from around the second week of April to mid-May.

Easter at Walt Disney World

Look for treats, eats, and customized baskets. Buy a pre-made basket or build your own!
