February Disney World crowds
February Disney World crowds are almost some of the smallest of the year and some really big crowds. It's a great time of the year for a Disney World vacation.
February is all about the week America celebrates it's Presidents'. Presidents' Day week is one of the busiest of the year. The rest of the month is just pretty quiet.

The Week to Visit in February
It's pretty much dealers choice when you try to pick a week to visit WDW in Feburary. Dad's got a funny bit answer over in WDW Magazine's January 2014 issue when asked about the best week to visit. Check it out here.
Presidents Day used to be one of the holidays that didn't effect Disney World crowds. That changed a couple of years ago. Now Presidents Day crowds are as big as the spring break crowds of March. It all starts the Friday before the holiday where crowds explode overnight.
Later in the week they calm down a bit, but both weekends are pretty packed. Once the holiday is over, everyone goes home and it's calm again.

This calendar is based on historical facts, as I know them today. The Walt Disney World Resort is an ever-changing environment and you might find things significantly different from below.

The Complete Crowd picture
Yes, Dad is full of crowd information, but there is a site out there that has a more complete picture of Disney World crowds than even Dad. (Gasp. Say it's not so.) It's OK, their friends. Touringplans.com is full of great, helpful information about February Disney World crowds and crowds all year long. They even have data from previous years about crowd levels in each park.
You can get a whole year of predictions of the crowds in each park for every day. They even suggest which park would be the best and which will be the worst when it comes to daily crowds. They have a smartphone app called "Lines" that keep track of how long the lines are at the rides in real time.
Best Time to Visit
Crowds are a big part of choosing the best time to visit WDW. There are other factors. Check out the month of February and see how it stacks up.
Dad's Bottom Line
February is one of the best times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. Crowds are significantly lighter for most of the month than in the rest of the spring or summer, and in February, the weather at Walt Disney World can be spectacular.
