    We are planning a visit Feb. 2013. We were planning to arrive on Sat 23rd, but this is the 1/2 marathon weekend. How many extra people will be on property for the race? Would we be better off Feb 9-16 even though that leads into presidents week?

    Hi Lisa! 

    February is a great month to go to Disney World.  Other than President's Day holiday, the park crowds are pretty mild.  The only day that you will notice any crowds from the race would be on the Saturday of the race weekend, and I have found that much of that crowd will be at the Magic Kingdom..  The week after is predicted to be very low.  You can check very accurate crowd level predictions at  I looked at them and beginning on Sunday the 24th, the week after is predicted to be much lower than the week of the 9th-16th.

    I hope this helps!
