    Any american public holidays/school olidays etc around 6 - 20 something of Feb - is this a busy time park wise - only ever been in January before so aware of the weather - just adding a few bits and bobs up and loking at half term plus a week on either side.

    Probably won't happen but its fun to look?

    Anybody been around then?

    Feeling reckless - last dayof my holidays and I need something to look forward to - doing it this way is the only way i will hae 2 weeks holiday with the kids next year but it would mean a major figt with the partners - plus we have 'the expensive thing' looming - but it would be nice to have final family trip to WDW before that.

    Like I said its just theoretical

    Darn these disney boards- I had just got 'clean'

    there is one around valentines day, think it's either presidents day or Martin luther King- not sure so just a long weekend. We went then for the weekend a few weeks ago and while it was not as quiet as the beginning of december was not horrific either.

    Can be quite a nice time to be at WDW. :D When is Easter this coming year (2009). That will tell the story. Spring break surrounds Easter and can be a wicked busy time of year.

    If Easter isn't until April, you should be quite well off with a February date. :yes: Presidents' Day and MLK birthday are in January. :yes:

    It's only because I remembered it from when we were there in 2004 and it made a difference to the parks, not a massive one though :)

    We did that time of year in 2007..(right Karen??) and it wasn't bad at all. In fact, we were there over Valentines Day. The weather was nice, although the Aussie's nearly froze... And the crowds definately manageable.

    There is no cure for the Disney itch you know...except for taking a trip...:gy:

    President's Day is on February 16th. We went to WDW in the first week of February in 2003. It was wonderful! The weather was cool but there were no lines. The only crowds that we did see were in the MK. We were there the day after the Superbowl. When the quarterback says "I am going to disney" after winning... they mean it. They had a special parade and it was crazy. We walked in and turned right around and went to another park.

    Thanks guys - well we will just have to wait and see just how busy it is - I suspect we will avoid MK on the actual day of the holiday
