First trip -staying at BLT 3/2 to 3/9 with DH, DS (5) and DD (2) - is swimming in the afternoon realistic at that time? Is a park in the AM and a park in the PM too much for 5 and 2? Should we do MK first on 3/3; will go MK on 3/4 with EMH in AM.

Congratulations on your first trip! You are going to have so much fun! I'm excited you are staying at the Bay Lake Towers. It is a beautiful resort AND linked up to the monorail. This will really be an asset since you have a 2 and 5 year old. You know your kids best but if they need a nap in the middle of the day, hopping on the monorail is a cinch. You can get to your hotel room and back to the parks in a flash--even with a stroller. You definitely want to have rested and happy kids.
As far as swimming in the afternoon, the weather in March is usually in the low 70's. You'll have to decide if that's too cold for your kids---but if they are like most, they won't mind swimming in that (or any) temperature!
The Extra Magic Hours for the Magic Kingdom on Thursday are the way to go! You will feel less crowded that morning. However, Wednesday is typically a low day for the Magic Kingdom. So,whatever you choose and whenever you go, it will be magical!
