February/Mardi Gras Question
Hi all! I am brand new here and it is so nice to meet all of you. I have been reading and now have a question.
I just about have DH convinced to move our Disney trip from Memorial Day (5/23 - 5/31) week to Mardi Gras week. We would arrive on Feb 1 and leave Feb 9. So what's the scoop on this time of the year? How cold is it? I know we may have to skip the Popeye water ride at Universal but if the crowd is lighter and the rooms are a tiny bit cheaper it may be worth it.
I know many Louisiana folks head to Disney at Mardi Gras but I would not think that it would make a huge difference.
Since I am new, here is a bit of a background. We were last at Disney for Christmas 2005. It was so crowded that we were miserable. We want to go back at a low attendance time. We would have to take our kids (6 & 8) out of school for 4 days so all this is contingent on the school board allowing it. Our plan is to split our park time with 4 days at Disney (mostly at MK) and 3 at Universal all while staying on the Disney grounds.
Oh, I can forget this important part......Feb 3 will be our 12 year anniversary. I would love to spend my anniversary at Disney. :tigrbnc:
Thanks in advance!
