Overview of Disney World in February
While this is officially the month of love, the parks are mostly low-key about Valentine's Day. But take a tip from us frogs: You can create romance at Disney World in February or any other time with our romantic ideas.
Crowds at Disney World in February
As far as crowds go, Valentine's Day itself has no appreciable impact on traffic. But we do see elevated crowds because of President's Day. Many people book their vacation around the federal holiday, boosting crowds in the park. For those of you visiting during this time, take advantage of our wait-times apps and make sure you get to park before opening to take advantage of the lowest crowds. Check the crowd calendar to see recommended days for the whole month and beyond.
