I’ve always been a frequent Disney parks visitor and I’ve been to various parks probably a gazillion times. Ok that might be an exaggeration but you get my point. Anyway let me share with you some awesome things you can do if you’re visiting Disney World this spring.
The weather this time around is typically lovely in Florida because it’s not very hot and humid yet. Spring is also a “slower” season if you exclude spring break.
1. Visit Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
Spring is the perfect time to go to Typhoon Lagoon. It’s one of the 2 water parks in Disney World, but this one’s what I enjoy the most.
In spring, the lagoon is usually pretty warm but because it’s not vacation season, there are smaller crowds which means the wait times are shorter.
Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is home to the biggest wave pool you’ll most likely ever see, and you definitely could spend an entire day there. Don’t worry, you won’t get bored at all since there is an array of slides, family raft rides, body slides and yes – a lazy river.
2. Check Out Disney’s Fantasia Gardens mini-golf course
This golf course is open year-round but you’ll enjoy it most in spring because of the perfect weather it brings in Florida. You won’t be in a hurry to finish playing your 18 holes game since there won’t be a big crowd waiting for you to end your game.
3. Festival of the Arts is a must-see Epcot event
Usually, Floridians kick off Spring season in February and many head to Epcot’s Festival of the Arts to celebrate. You’ll find food booths all over the World Showcase.
You should also see the Deconstructed booth, which offers nicely plated dishes divided into their individual components.
The Festival of the Arts also showcases art booths displaying sculptures, chalk drawings, prints, clothing, paintings, and so much more. You’ll also be able to chat with the artists at their booth if you’re lucky.
And there is also an animation class at the American pavilion, where you will be taught how to draw your favorite Disney characters. And be sure to drop by the massive paint-by-numbers mural in Future World as well.
4. Don’t miss the Disney on Broadway Concert Series
Disney on Broadway is a series of concerts showcasing Broadway stars belting different songs from famous Disney musicals. These include “Frozen,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King” among others. Music fan or not, this is something you should include in your itinerary.
5. The Flower and Garden Festival is the hallmark of Spring
In the festival, you’ll find an assortment of gorgeous flowers and topiaries. It runs from March until summer. It’s kind of like the Food and Wine Festival which happens in fall, except that you’ll see a lot of beautiful flowers instead of food.
There are many lovely topiaries of beloved Disney characters everywhere, and it’s really nice going through the World Showcase and looking for every single one of them. Disney also tends to sprinkle colorful flowers throughout the park during this time.
Moreover, during the Flower and Garden Festival you can also attend the Garden Rocks concert series at Epcot.
