    We are planning to go to Disney World March 5-9 and have never been here this time of year. Is it MK more crowed then in Nov? We are thinking of staying at animal kingdom, is it too cold yet for a lot of the animals to be seen from the room?

    Hi, Sandra!

    While there is no hard-and-fast way to "predict" the crowd levels at Walt Disney World, there are some historical data that can give a rough idea of how it might be.

    You're coming to the World at a beautiful time, The weather is just starting to warm up, so you'll definitely be able to take advantage of your Resort pool during the day, while the nights are still cool enough that you might want to bring a light sweatshirt or jacket along for your activities.

    After Presidents' Day weekend in February, Disney attendance does see an uptick. School calendars often start spring breaks in early March and roll through late April, and Spring Breakers (and their families) do love to spend time at Disney during vacation! It's quite possible, however, that your early March arrival will miss the bulk of the Spring Break visitors.

    But November can be busy as well; people start their winter holidays just before Thanksgiving and head down to Florida.

    For the most part, in the beginning of March, you'll have sunny days in the high 70s, nights in the low 60s. Those daytime temperatures are certainly warm enough to lure lots of the animals out to enjoy the sunshine.

    Have a wonderful time on your adventure!

    See you later, celebrator!
