We have a reservation on-site, but the info I have from them said I need my tickets linked to my reservation in order to get these things. I'm most worried about having my son get on TSM, so that would be the only fast pass thing we would want anyway. Are the wait times really awful for that even in February? We will be at HS on February 8th. It seems to have EMH and the park is open until 10pm. Best time to get on there without fast pass? And we will definitely need to see Buzz and Woody. Thanks!
We went last year same week and were not able to ride TSM I failed to run there at rope drop and instead did around 11am. FP were all gone for the day with a 2 hour line.

Does anyone know if I cancel one of my travelers on the trip if I would get any type of refund, and if it's worth just going alone? I'm just a bit worried about traveling and celebrating my birthday alone.
I think is only $50 to make a change to the reservation. This would allow you to bring someone else!!!

Could you replace him with someone else? Lots of people go alone and have a blast! Independence Celebration? I think yes!
Thanks for clarifying! I'm going to do one last push to find a replacement. But most of my friends are tight for money and vacation days after the holidays. Or they think I'm crazy for wanting to go to WDW.

Looks like you'll be there when we are there. You are certainly welcome to hang with us (four of us).

Hello February peeps Well, can't believe my countdown said 36 days today. Arriving on Thursday, February 13th at in the AM and departing February 23rd. Can you say 10 NIGHTS! We will be staying at POR (1st time). We are staying in a Royal Room. All of the plans done, all of the FP+'s booked, Tiffany Towncar booked, all dining reservations ready! My family (DD, DM, and DD (9)) would welcome hellos and magical greetings from all of our fellow Dis'rs! If anyone has anything specific going on, let us know...would love a quick meet and greet! Thank all of you for everything you have done! As I look at my planning binder, I am almost a little sad that all of my hours planning since July 5th are done Planning is definitely half the fun! See you all real soon! Safe travel all...

Sorry if this has already been discussed (I didn't read all 40 pages of the thread yet), but...is anyone else confused / worried as to why a BUNCH of Extra Magic Hours have been added to SO MANY of the parks the latter part of February? What I thought was supposed to be a slow time to go, may end up being a very, very BUSY time. According to EasyWDW, Josh has kept the crowd levels to 3's and 4's most of the week, but...he even eludes to higher crowds than normal. Any idea why???

The hours don't look that much different from last year to me. Josh recommends not going to EMH parks anyway. I wouldn't worry about it.

Princess Half Marathon is at the end of February. I don't think that accounts for the change though. It isn't uncommon for EMH to get added. I would say go and enjoy it! There is starting to be a trend of no REAL low crowd times any more as off season seems to become busier due to deals being booked but I don't think you are looking at Christmas busy. Don't worry!! It'll be fine!

Oh, I hope so! When I saw that there were even more EMH added daily to the parks, that made us nervous that there was going to be a huge influx of visitors, perhaps the international tour groups we read so much about. Hoping for the best! And, thanks for the insight!

I know a few colleges that have their spring breaks the last week of February too. When we were there in January there were a lot of South American tour groups because that is their summer time. They weren't obnoxious to us though and seemed rather courteous. There were TONS of them at the AS resorts and they all had mAtching track suits lol

We get in Feb 25th and are there till March 1. How busy are the parks that week? Last year was our 1st trip down there and we went the week of Presidents day not knowing it was one of the busiest of the year until...this year we did more research so hopefully wont be as busy but we did had a wonderful time!

I'm getting nervousness about how busy our week will be. We are the first week in February. I swear every other person I see post is going that week. I know that doesn't mean anything...does it?

Fid anyone go last year at that time?

As far as people taking trips in February you are probably the safest of all weeks in Feb. The second weekend is cheerleading competitions, the the third is Presidents weekend, and the last week is Princess Half Marathon. February isn't a super slow time any more but you shouldn't find yourself standing in 2 hour long lines either. I think you will do fine with the time you have chosen but only time will tell! Plus, you see people posting that week because it's "your" week so it probably stands out more to you. We are going during cheer competition and I am freaking because we are staying at a value- apparently all value resorts are maxed to capacity and can't receive reservations any longer. That concerns me. As far as watching boards and measuring by that, so far I've seen trending being between presidents week and actually think I've seen most say they are visiting during PHM at the last week in Feb. Like I said, no way to know for positive until you are there but I think you've picked the most down week there is for Feb. Good luck & have fun!
