Which would people recommend...thinking of AOA LM room.
Feb 20-28
or
Feb 28-March 6

Kids are 4,6 and will be 9 months old at time of trip! LOVE MK and haven't done Epcot yet...will do resort days and not commando days for sure with our youngest girl.

Thanks in advance

Flights are going to be with two different airlines too as the times are morning arriving with one and evening with the other and I would rather get there at 10am vs 10pm!

Since the first week is closer to Presidents Day I would say the 2nd week should be much less crowded. We went last year right in between those 2 weeks and the start of the week was very crowded and it was extrememly quiet in the parks by the time we left. Have fun!

Check out: http://www.easywdw.com/category/calendar/02-february-2013-crowd-calendar/

This site shows February 20 - 23 with crowd levels mainly at 8 (5 being average and 10 being high)!

This site says:
■February 18 23 is Peak, the second most expensive of the major seasons.
(http://www.easywdw.com/disneybest/disney-world-calendar-of-crowds-cost-weather-events/#more-935)


Feb 28 - March 6th: Looks like the crowd levels are ranging from 3 - 6 but mainly 4's.

The same site says:
■March 1 7 is Regular Season, which has prices that are about in the middle of Value and Peak Seasons. For example, a resort that is $100 during Value Season and $150 during Peak Season would be about $125 during Regular Season.

I'd go with the late Feb/early March timeframe! The early 2013 discounts haven't been announced yet but that might affect your choice as well. If free dining or a room discount is offered one of these weeks that would be nice. However, I would assume if Feb 18-23 is "peak" like Easywdw states then I doubt they'll be many offers that week.
