Not to panic you... But there are no 'sweeping' generalizations like "all schools are in session' .. That's simply not true.

Schools here in Canada are taking that week as a March Break for example and I know of a few schools in Maine that do the same.

Having said that, the preponderance of schools will NOT be taking a break that week and the crowd levels should be good as noted..

As the week goes on, you'll see crowds generally increase as more and more people arrive for the following week. It's subtle at first and becomes more obvious towards the end of the week.

Don't stress tho, as noted, it won't be bad at all.

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.
Trudy, I'll be there February 18-26. What are your dates and which resort?

We are. I know several families planning trips but DD is in AP and on the academic team -- she just can't miss any days or practices. We're scheduled for the Poly for 2/23-3/3 but flying Southwest, so I can change tickets, and room-only so I can move dates if needed. NO SNOW NO SNOW!
