I would do April. Weather a little nicer and you'll have the flower and garden festival at Epcot to enjoy. I went in Feb. once and it was nice though too so I don't think you can go wrong either way.

I would go with April. Both times are nice. Crowds will be about the same for both times but the weather will be better.

I would go in February. We'll be there on the 25th and the crowds for that Tues. 2/26 through Thurs. 3/1 are at a 3 according to touring plans. That won't be the case during April and spring break/etc. We actually adjusted our days b/c of the crowd prediction that week. Also, February is the least rainy month historically. The weather is very similiar to where we live, but Orlando runs about 8-10 degrees warmer. And yes, you can swim that time of year

This is strange.......... last year we spent part of the last week of Feb into the first week of March, this year we arrive April 9th for 9 nights. One more disney night was pretty cool last year wasn't it. The heat wave was nice too, DW loved the heat and said we should try April this year also DS has spring break then. Looking at easywdw April crowd calander temperatures seem nice, high 70's to low 80's during the day around 60 at night. Crowds at level 5 so I think we can deal with that. We are from the north east so that is definatly swimming weather for us.
