March is Music in our Schools Month and so Disney invites bands and choirs from all over the country to perform at various venues (DH did 8 of them). Each day can feature as many as 6 choirs and 6 bands. It's a wonderful gesture and there is some amazing music. The number of kids is amazing, just about as amazing as the number of kids trying to wear flipflops for the first time of the year (they are either carrying them or covered in bandaides by the second day). The weather is nicer, but all those young adults are amazing and, sorry to say, not that aware of their manners.

So we will in the future pass on March but would love to see Flower and Garden sometime.

This may seem awful to say, but it has been my observation over the years - I don't mind the American groups as much as the groups of young people from other countries.. I know it's been covered on here in the past, but the foreign groups are very loud, they chant and sing and tend to be rude and demanding, pushing through lines with 100 fast passes. I don't notice that with the US groups. Just my observation. Seems like American groups there now for spring break, not sure when the other groups will invade.

We hit part of the Pop Warner Football/Cheerleading thing in December. I assure that the American cheerleading groups have the ability to be just as annoying with their chanting, walking 27 people abreast, randomly screaming, etc.

awesome I couldn't agree more alicemouse!
My DH and I went to WDW a few years ago when my niece was competing in the UCA National All Star Cheerleading Championship. Her squad was staying at All Star Sports and we went to visit her there and walked around Epcot with her squad. For a VERY short amount of time. I love my niece dearly, but I was ready to jump in the lake at Epcot just to get away from the chaos of 30 VERY LOUD, red blooded American teenage girls!!!!
Even Mary Poppins would lose her temper with most of the large groups of teenagers at WDW, no matter what country they are from.

My DW and I went on our Honeymoon the week after Labor Day and it was SOOOO SLOW! Ive been to WDW a few different times of the year, and had NEVER seen it so empty. The only time we saw a line was for Toy Story Mania, and it was only once, and for 45 minutes. Most of the time there was no line and we ended up doing it 4 times! BY FAR the best time to go!

Darlin! You just made my day! We are there mid Sept. Of course, aside from March Music in Our Schools Month Madness, my husband claims the only bad time to go to Disney is when you're dead. wheelchair

I went Sep 28-Oct 4th last year and walked on all rides. There were very few rides that had longer than a 15 minute wait. Now TSMM had a 60-90 minute wait but it is not a ride that I have any interest in. In Epcot I walked right on to Soarin and could have gone back again.

I know a few Happy Haunts that would disagree! laugh

I agree with Ken after the winter that we have had to endure I will not complain about hot and humid again. Of course remind me of that when it is the middle of July and it is 90+ degrees with 100% humidity. laugh
