Look up dads disney page on the net he gives crowd number all year round. On the 23rd feb he has marked red (heavy crowds) but the days after that should be good. I think President days public hol on Feb 23rd. Once that day is over it goes back to normal. (Cooler weather then too which is good. Summer there is way too hot and humid for me (june july August even into sept) You are going to have fun !!

Lucky then that we get there at 8pm to MCO on the 23rd so we won't have to worry about that day at the parks Thanks for the information. It's appreciated

That's what I read on Google too. We fall just nicely with our visit being the week after Presidents Day and the week before spring break

We started counting down almost a year in advance and I recall having so many "it's so far away" moments. Instead it's now "omg I still have so much to plan and organise, when am I going to get it all done"moments. I picture a mad scramble the night before to get the house in order.

Time will go quicker than you think

That is me right now!!! The time will go quicker than a blink - I can't believe that in 2 weeks time I'll be at Disneyland, with the rest of the trip ahead of me!!!
Just enjoy your planning - do lots of reading, and surfing . There will be quite a number of trip reports coming up in the next couple of months, most of them with pictures, so you will have plenty to look at and research!!
Have fun, oh, and welcome to the Aussie section..!!

Sounds wonderful but five days in a row of early mornings combined with late nights will be absolutely exhausting

1900 pf is great but once is enough considering all the other options ( especially Epcot dining). Avoid chef mickeys. Its a zoo at the best of times. Try also at Hollywood studios sci fi diner for something different.
