What's going on end of Feb/first week of march?

We will be there feb27-march 3 and the hotels are very expensive. What's going on. Is it just the start of spring break (although where I live spring break is in April).

Yes, and they aren't included in the discount that week either (3/5 to 3/14 are a blackout). I had to bump my vacation back a week to get a discounted room. Totally forgot that with Easter so late that Mardi Gras would be late too!

OP, your dates should fall into the discount period. Have you looked at the special offers page on the Disney website?

Those dates are NOT blacked out. Believe me, I know. We're going for Mardi Gras also. The thing is that the room only discount goes from 35% to 30% for deluxe hotels, but they are still discounted.
