    I have ms and worry about possible crowds. How is this time of yr. at WDW? When does it start to get extra busy for spring breaks?

    Howdy, Carol!

    Thank you so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are thrilled to hEAR from you!

    I've been to Walt Disney World Resort twice during February and I can tell you from experience, it's a wonderful time to visit. The weather is usually pretty mild and crowds tend to be on the lighter side. Spring Break crowds don't usually begin until the beginning of March, so you should easily avoid them.  The only real crowd concern for February comes at the end of the month with the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend, but looking at your dates, you should miss it as well. I think you've planned a perfect trip to take advantage of lower expected crowd levels. 

    There is a new event, the Epcot International Festival Of The Arts, taking place during weekends from January 13 - February 20 this year. Be aware that crowds will be a little heavier at Epcot during the weekends, but if you find them manageable, the event looks incredible.  I have been following the news on the Disney Parks Blog and all of the Guest pictures from the event and it looks simply amazing. Otherwise, I'd visit Epcot during the week and save the weekend for another park. 

    Have a wonderful visit, Carol, and please let us know if we are able to assist you with anything else. 

    Magical Wishes,
