    February

    Hi all,

    I have always taken my trips to Walt Disney World in November and once in April. I have to push the trip I had planned for November back to February 2011 but hey at least I'm still going

    I have never been in February before and I was wondering what the crowds/weather etc might be like? It's probably going to be the first week in February.

    Any info anyone can give me would be really helpful.

    Thanks

    Victoria

    Re: February

    We visited this past February and had a brilliant time. The only thing was it was much colder than it should have been due to all the snow they were getting on the East-Coast, so no swimming for us! Crowds were very low and we got to do everything we wanted to with very little wait. Would definitely go back in February again.

    Re: February

    February is great, if you pick the right times. Due to the holiday, if you time it correctly, you're set. Parents are more likely to take their kids out of school if they can incorporate an existing day off. The earlier in the month, the better, usually.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    It always depends on your definition of cold, too. Where I'm from, 50º is put on your shorts. I've been to places where it's 75º out and people are wearing sweaters

    Re: February

    Living in Orlando, I've gotten to know the crowds pretty well. First week of Feb should be relatively dead in the parks. The week of President's Day is school vacation for lots of areas and the parks get absolutely slammed with people and stay rather busy through mid-April due to various spring breaks.

    As for weather, Jan and Feb are the hardest times to guess. It can be 70s or 40s. Definitely plan for cold nights though... easily in the 30s.

    It's a good time to visit and I'd recommend it. Just be prepared with layers and warm stuff for after dark.

    Re: February

    It will certainly be warmer than the UK, but cooler than you are used to in Florida. Unless some arctic air blasts through, I think you will find the weather pleasant and sunny, and the crowds very manageable.

    Hi Victoria,

    I have Feb trip experience and spent a great time. The Feb climate usually colder however I think it is a good time to visit to WDW because it isn’t a crowded time and you can get everything easily, that you want.

    Good luck!

    Best Regards,
