Disneyland Weather March Averages, France
In March, the weather begins to warm up in Paris, France. The temperatures rise; there is more sun seen on a daily basis; and there is less chance of rain than in winter. It does still get cooler in the evenings, though, so make sure you wrap up warm if you're venturing out at night.

March is the first month of the year that has daytime high temperatures in the two digitsn the afternoons, you can enjoy highs of 12°C. Nights are still cold, though, with lows averaging 4°C.

It receives 35mm of precipitation and has 12 days with rainfall. This number of 12 rainy days is the annual low; also observed in May, June and July.

Light rain comes in second and moderate snow third, respectively occurring on 11% and 9% of the rainy days. Snowfall is most likely in the beginning of the month, a 9% chance, while March 31 only has a 3% chance of snowfall.
The amount of sunshine hours per day is 5 in March, a two-hour increase since February. This is due to a huge decrease in cloud cover in the course of the month (from 81% to 69%) and the lengthening of the days. Every day in March is 3.5 minutes longer than the previous one.

Only a ten-minute ride with the free shuttle from the park's gates, the Vienna International Magic Circus Hotel is a well-equipped 4-star hotel.

Facilities include the L'Etoile Restaurant, Le Bar des Artistes, a heated indoor pool, a fitness centre, a beauty centre, outdoor and indoor play areas and a video games arcade.
The 'Lady and the Tramp'-themed Pizzeria Bella Notte in Fantasyland is one of the most beautifully decorated of all counter-service restaurants in Disneyland Paris. As a pizza and pasta restaurants, the unforgettable scene in which the two dogs share spaghetti and meatballs and kiss couldn't apply better. The restaurant's murals feature this particular scene and many others. The food is certainly nice, but it's the atmosphere and décor that make this restaurant worth visiting.
Another great place in Fantasyland is The Old Mill. This is not a sit-down restaurant, though, but rather a place to grab a quick snack. Its menu consists of hot dogs, pastries, baguettes, ice cream, Belgian waffles, cakes and beverages.
