    Vacation planning for 2006

    If you had to choose between President's Week (February 2006) or the last week of June....what would you choose? This is the only time I can possibly take my nieces.

    February. The parks are packed during the summer and the humidity in Florida in June is miserable!

    The best places are probably already taken for February 2006, and air fare will be very $$$.

    So even thought it will be hotter, I would say June. My brother just took his kids there this past JUne and survived

    It depends on whether you mind the heat or not and Florida in June is pretty toasty. I would go in Feb vs June hands down jus for comfort sake.

    Being a native Floridian and living about two hours from Orlando, I say February is the better bet. The weather in north central Florida is brutal during the months of June and July. Not only is it hot, it rains almost every day. And if you're lucky, you won't be struck by a hurricane . I say February and just start looking for hotels and airfares. I'm sure you'll find some good deals. Good luck and keep us updated on your final choice

    I would go with Feb, hands down. That week there is some pick up in attendence but nothing near the amount of people during the summer. ALso the weather rocks during feb. The only real trade off is the parks are not open as later in the night, but u dont need them to be open since there are less people and u can ride and see what you wanna see.

    Feb. agian hands down just like eveyone else has said. Your talking way less people and that means shorter ride lines and that means more fun.

    Wow! Planning already? Now that's organisation! But seriously, I would have to agree with everyone about the time to visit, you don't want to run head-first into huge crowds early in the day.

    We went for two weeks this past February and loved it. There were a couple of very cold days, but all in all it was in the 70's and perfect. I don't think you absolutely need to rush out and make reservations. I don't think the hotels ever fill up during that time of the year. We rented a house about two weeks before we went and got a great deal because there were tons of places that were empty.

    I'd pick Feb. This last year, I was there in both early Feb. and in June-low crowds in Feb, and although the weather is iffy, I prefer that to the 100 degree heat. And can't beat the no to low wait on rides!!!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!
