Seriously thinking of Feb 25th - Mar. 1st - How are crowds?
 
I had a wonderful week at Disney beginning Dec. 6th. I am now lonely for Disney again. Am I crazy to even think of doing it again so soon ?????
My regular vacation is 7 nights. So ..... I was thinking of a shorter trip - maybe for 4 nights. I think I may be able to get a 35% discount.

So .... I have never been there in February. I was seriously thinking of February 25th for 4 nights. How are the crowds then ? Do some schools have spring break that early? This will be a solo trip.

Thanks so much !

Crowd levels will be low, it's a week after Presidents weekend and all schools are in session. Excellent time to go:thumbsup2

I took my son there at that time 2 years ago. Crowds were great and the weather was nice.

We'll be there 2/28-3/5. Crowd calendars show 3 to 6 at worst.

Thank You, Everyone!

It wouldn't be Spring Break for schools, it would be Winter Break - however that usually coincides with President's Day which is the week before. Colleges have Spring Break in March, but it would start a week or two after your dates. I think you're safe!

We have done that week a few times and the crowds are always low and the weather is perfect for me. It's my favorite week to visit!!!

We are going a few days that week. I think it'll be horribly crowded--no one should go! Millions of people! Crowd calendars say 10! Everyone stay home!!! :lmao: Kidding of course...looks like it's a good time to go. Just want to scare off everyone else! :)

It should not be very crowded, but just so you know, Feb 24 (the day before) is the Princess Half Marathon.

Our school system is out Feb 25th-Mar 1 provided there is no snow. They built in a week for snow make up. We 're scheduled for the Poly 2/23-3/3 but if it snows, we'll have to push it back a couple of days.

Hoping for no snow!!

Hoping for lower crowds as we will be there Feb 24th to march 1st. (Its our school winter break)

creativeamanda 12-23-2012 08:55 AM

Again, those of you there on the 24th might want to look at how the Princess Half could affect travel plans. It runs directly from Epcot to Magic Kingdom and back, so there will be road closures. Y'all will just want to be prepared for that.

We went around this time last year (Feb. 29-March 6, 2012) and it was great - weather very warm and low crowds I thought although there would always be longer lines in the afternoon for the most popular rides.

clanmcculloch 12-24-2012 10:05 AM

We've been a few times that week as it's NH winter break. It's an amazing week to visit.

To Amanda's point about the marathon; yes there are lots of road closures that day. If you us WDW transportation it's not a big deal but you do definitely need to allow for more travel time that day. If you drive to the parks, I'm sure it can be difficult.

Amanda, will you be there this year? It would be nice to see you again.
