    I am arriving in DW on the day after Presidents Day. Are the crowds high the whole week or is it just the weekend leading to presidents day? What days would be best to visit which parks?

    Hi Tanya,

    Typically the weeks before and after Presidents' Day see very reasonable park attendance levels.  (February is a fabulous time to visit Walt Disney World).  The three-day weekend in between, however, can see very high park attendance.  It sounds like you will be arriving at a good time, after most of the park traffic has died down. 

    If you are staying at a Disney resort during your vacation, definitely plan to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours. That means you might want to consider visiting the Magic Kingdom on February 23rd, Epcot on the 21st or 24th, Disney's Hollywood Studios on the 25th, and Disney's Animal Kingdom on the 22nd.  I love being in the Disney theme parks during Extra Magic Hours!  This is often the time of day when you will find the shortest lines for attractions. 

    Let us know if you need any additional advice as you plan your magical February adventure, Tanya.  We'd be delighted to assist you.
