    We are planning a visit to the resort the week of Mardi Gras 2012, 2/18 thru 2/25. This happens to also be Presidents Day week. Will the crowds be heavier than other Mardi Gras weeks?

    Hi Troy!

    Presidents Week can be quite a popular week at Walt Disney World as many schools across the country (especially in the Northeast) often have school breaks during the week. While crowds will not be at a peak like during the Christmas or Easter holidays, they will be higher than normal for February.

    Typically, Mardi Gras does not create a large influx of visitors to the parks. However, since it is timed with school's winter breaks, next year could be quite different.

    Hope this helps!
