    Aside from the Presidential holidays, it is generally slow. Both times I've gone in February it has been coldish.

    Layers and a locker.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    And amazingly it was 85 Friday in WDW. Ya just never know. My DS had done the CP, August to January a few years back and it warmer on NYE than it was at Thanksgiving.

    We were mostly in jeans and hoodies during the day but it was really pleasant, sure beats August.

    Re: wdw in feb?

    I went once in February, in 2008. It was during the week of Presidents Day, because my high school has an unusual week off in February, which most schools in the area don't even have. So my family went for a week then. Granted it was Presidents week, so there were crowds. Not empty like you would expect, but also nowhere near the crowds of mid-summer. Most e-ticket attractions, such as Test Track, Splash Mountain, Rock n Roller Coaster, at peak times had no more than 45 minute waits but bearable working around with fastpasses.

    But, first week of February should be even less crowded, and you will have a great time then. Weather can vary. When I was down that week of February it was pushing 80 most of the week. But it can be cold, just have to keep checking.

    So...basically all that Gabe said.

    Re: wdw in feb?

    I am going the last week in Feb (Feb. 26-March 3) for my birthday this year...anyone ever go around this time? I assumed the crowds would be minimal, but after reading this thread I am getting nervous! I know the weather is something you need to watch at that time of year though. My usual game plan is a tank top with a sweatshirt to carry in case we need it (I say tank top because I want a tan if possible :-) )
