We will be there that week too! My DS turns 7 on 2/26 and we're looking forward to celebrating there.

We were there about the same time in 2010 and it was very cold and gray most of the week. :-( We lived in our Columbia fleece jackets that week and on some days wished we had something heavier. Went last year end of January and had temps in the 80's and sun all week.

This trip I'll plan for a little of both weather types and hope for the best.

OH, this scares me. I've been down there when it was freezing before, and I really need some warm sunshine. Wonder how long I'll make it before I start obsessively looking at the weather forecasts ?

Well, I lasted 10 seconds after that post . I know it means nothing at this point, but they are currently predicting low 80's. I'm praying that this will be true!

We are going the 23rd through the 27th. Looks like the crowds won't be too bad. It's hard to say for sure how the weather will be in FL in February. It's usually nice, in the 70's or 80's and sunny, but there is always the chance that a cold front will move down the state and it'll be a little chillier. We are packing shorts and t-shirts right now and we'll be driving down in jeans and hoodies, so I'll have at least 1 cold-weather outfit handy. Might throw another one in the suitcase depending on the weather report the day before we leave. Go for it, you should have a great time!

That's the nice thing about driving. When we drive in the winter, we usually have an extra suitcase with cold weather gear (at least when the forecast is iffy). And we can (hopefully) leave our coats in the car the whole time.

For packing I plan layers.
For Melody most of her outfits are skirts and short sleeve T's.
I'll have leggings or pants for each top and long sleeves to go under each short sleeve shirt available if needed.
And a jacket too, in case of really cold temps.
For DH and myself we'll do something similar in that we'll have a long sleeve T to go under our short sleeve T and we'll have a pair of pants to go in place of shorts.
We'll have tennies to wear if it's too cool for sandals.
Even if the weather is warm when we leave we are there 10 days. The predictions are not accurate 10 days out so it could well turn cool before we head home so we'll bring it all with us.

That's MY birthday! I'll also be celebrating at Disney. Let's all hope for a warm, dry week together!

I am going for a short trip February 28th-March 4th. I am hoping for fewer crowds and nice weather also. This may be my last trip to the World until 2015 (Really want to see Universal next Winter).

Now my dilemma is to keep checking every day or let it go for a while - at least until its time for the 10 day forecast .
