    The nearest time to these days we have been was 3 weeks from I think the 6th March back in 2005.
    It was not bad at all crowd wise but the weather wasn't ideal, a real mixture of everything, sun, rain, cold - I wouldn't say it was a bad time to go but weather wise very unpredictable.

    We have been in February - in fact February 2006 and it was really cold. We have been in February before and it is usually a pleasant time to go as it is not too hot. A bit unpredictable knowing what clothing to take though:lmao:

    It is a good time of year for flight prices and crowds:thumbsup2

    I would go again this time of year

    Hmm might have to have a bit of a think on this. I dont mind a few cold days but i would like atleast a few afternoons where would would be able to relax by the pool in the afternoons.

    Glad to hear the crowds are low though.

    We always go Feb half term and the week after. As everyone's said, the weather is usually cool first thing in the morning and also in the evening. We've always managed the water parks and this year both of my teenagers got really burnt. Knew better than Mum about putting more cream on :sad2:

    Lived in cropped trousers and strappy t shirts and came back with a tan. SIL wore shorts but not quite warm enough for me.

    Blue skys everyday and I think we got rain one evening.

    Mardi Gras is on at Universal and this year we saw Neyo and Village People and Hall and Oates were on at Seaworld. Busch Gardens even had the Osmonds.

    If you decide to go, I'm sure you'll have a brilliant time. :)

    Our frist ever trip was early February, no rain, warm sunny days, evenings and first thing a bit chilly. Whilst we really enjoyed the trip dressing for a whole day out was a pain because had to take fleece for evenings but carry it around during the day
