    We want to go to Disney World in February '22. I'm a teacher, so we're bound by the school break calendar. I was thinking February 21-26, but saw it's the Princess 5k. Would that week still be better than Spring Break (April 3 - 9) or no?

    Hi Stacy!

    I'm also a teacher and have been playing the when-is-the-best-time to travel to Walt Disney World game for years. It's a fun game because you always win with a trip to see Mickey!

    Your February week might be quite popular at the parks since Presidents' Day week is a common time for schools to have winter break. Plus there is a three day weekend on one end of your dates and the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend on the other.

    Easter in 2022 falls on April 17th. Often schools take the week off before the holiday, so that puts your April dates ahead of some districts' vacations. You will have similar bookend weekend calendar events to deal with though. March 31- April 3rd is the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend and many schools will start spring break on April 9th.

    If your only criteria for picking when to visit the mouse is crowd levels, I lean toward April because you have a chance of having some days in the middle of your week with low attendance. If other reasons have you leaning toward February, no worries, you will still have one of the best weeks ever!

    Wishing you a wonderful week of adventure!
