    Anyone going the first week of March? Our family of 4 are going Feb. 29 thru Mar. 5. I changed some ADR's last week and they still had openings for Le Cellier on Sat. night and California Grill Sun. night. They also had plenty of rooms at AKL. Maybe it won't be too crowded even though ESPN weekend is going on the first part of our trip. We will be avoiding MGM until Mon. The MK is closing at 8pm on most nights too. Hopefully it won't be too cold.

    Well I guess I won't be waiting in line for any rides since no one else is going this week. This might even be better than Sept. and Jan. when we usually go.

    We will be there 2/26-3/4. When I booked I didn't realize it was ESPN weekend, but that is a plus for us because DS will love it. Everyone have a great trip! :goodvibes

    Awesome, I will be on the lookout! I would love to meet up with other DISsers! I don't have a Baggallini, but I will try to score some Lime Green Mickey's at Home Depot or Lowes! Have a great trip and a wonderful Birthday. Happy early B-day to you and your DH! :thumbsup2

    We'll be there from 2/27-3/2. I'm excited to hear it looks like it won't be too crowded. I was starting to get worried but anything's got to be better than the middle of the summer, which when I went last.
    I picked this weekend b/c it's considered one of the "wonderful weeks" according to the disney website.

    See you all there!

    We're right there with you! There are cheerleading competitions happening on the weekends though plus ESPN the Weekend so watch out for MGM as they will be busier, or so I've been told. We too went in the summer last time and it was crazy. I'm looking forward to having less crowds. We go Feb 23rd through March 1st.

    My family of 3 will be there. I just booked the Norway Princess Diner last night. Le Cellier wasn't available until 8:40 so we got Norway.

    We went the 2nd week of March last year and it hit the low 80's everyday.

    Has everyone been reading about how crowded Jan. has been? I think this week will show if it really is more crowded than normal. We were there the last week of Jan. last year and we had minimal wait times but the parks themselves seemed to have more people to navigate through. Has anyone changed ADR's recently? Did they still have a lot of openings? We are eating at Le Cellier Sat. night, Ca. Grill Sun. night, and Artist Point Mon. night. I changed around some of these to add our neighbors last week and it was no problem.

    We have a 6pm ADR for LeCellier for Sat. March 1. I decided that I wanted to change it to be a little later. I called this past Saturday and no luck. LeCellier is sold out until 8:40. But because it's so popular it can be sold out when nothing else is so I'm not sure that this is an indication of how crowded it will be.

    Speaking of ADRs lets all post ours to see if any of us will be eating together.

    Here are ours...
    2/28 - 11:40am Chef Mickey's
    2/29 - My Birthday!!! 8:05am Crystal Palace 8:40pm 'Ohana
    3/1 - DH's Birthday!!! 8:05am Hollywood & Vine 6pm LeCellier
    3/2 - 8:00 Tusker House

    Eight of us will be arriving at AKL Fri. late afternoon Feb. 29. Depending on what time check in is complete we will try to eat at Boma or Jiko if we feel like it. Last week the dining reservations person said there were plenty of openings at Jiko that night but who knows. Sat. Mar.1- Le Cellier at 4:20, Sun., Mar.2- California Grill at 5:30, Mon., Mar. 3- Artist Point at 5:30, and we don't know where we will be Tues. night.
