“Hi Dad. I’m planning a trip for 2018, possibly February. I know that Jersey Week is in January, but is Brazil Week or weeks in February? I was there in 2015 at the end of February, and it was just ended. Trying to figure out crowds, and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.”

Michelle, thanks for the question.
Personally, I’ve never heard of Brazil week(s). Jersey week, yes (it’s in November by the way), but Brazil week, no.
The February crowds are just pretty light for the most part, up until President’s Day. That first two or three weeks, there’s not a lot of crowds, but after the Presidents Day crowds hit it gets busy.
Now, are there tour groups from Brazil during February? I’m sure there are. There are tour groups from Brazil at Walt Disney World all year long. I’ve been in December, I’ve been in October, I’ve been in November, I’ve been in August, I’ve been in July, I’ve been in January; every month I’ve been there, I have seen Brazil tour groups.
But, since February is usually around the Carnival time, there does tend to be more of them. I will say that February, the crowds were up a little bit February over the last year couple of years but overall it’s not a bad time to go.
Dad’s Bottom Line
There is really not a week that you can point to and say, “This is Brazil Week.” Around Carnival (February 9-14, 2018) you tend to see a few more people from Brazil, but you get tour groups from Brazil all year long. It’s just not something that I would worry too much about.
