I hope you don't mind, but I felt the need to jump in! (we're all a little like that around here - always wanting to put in our 2 cents worth!) I say #1, go in February! Other than President's day, it is not very crowded. Spring break is awful for crowds. The parks are so much bigger than Disneyland, that you should spend more than one day at each park. Although I suggest that perhaps one each for Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios might be okay, 2 each for MK and Epcot for sure. So if you have a week, that would still leave you a day to go to Universal (Harry Potter) or Kennedy. Kennedy is a pretty full day with the driving. I've not done Universal, so I can't really comment on that, but Cynthia has. We've done shorter trips and done one day at each park, and even though we've been there a bunch, it seems like we miss a lot. For your first trip, you'll want to give yourself enough time to do all the things you really want to do. Hope that helps!
