Planning for Disney World in February

by Leap on January 30, 2017 25

If you're itching for a winter getaway, Disney World in February just might be the ticket! There a quite a few events going on at the major theme parks, and minus the week of President's Day, crowd levels are low to average.

Overview of Disney World in February

Disney World in February - Mickey and Minnie

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.

Closings and Refurbishments at Disney World in February

Many of the water rides see seasonal refurbishments in the month of February. Disney's Blizzard Beach is typically under seasonal closure (Disney's Typhoon Lagoon remains open). At Walt Disney World, Splash Mountain, Liberty Square Riverboat and Kali River Rapids often have closures. At Universal's Islands of Adventure, Dudley Do-Right's Rip Saw Falls and Popeye & Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges often have closures. For more details and a list of all refurbishments, check our closings page.

Weather at Disney World in February

In February, temperatures are on the rise, with an average high of 74 and a low of 52. There will be sunny days, so don't forget the swimsuits as the pools are heated. You will still need a jacket for the evenings and chilly mornings. Here is the packing list for this time of year.

Events at Disney World in February

Be sure to check out special events pages for Disney WorldUniversal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando & Busch Gardens Tampa for full details.

If we are forced to go to Disney during President's Week, since the kids are off, what is the best deal we can get on airfare, hotels in Disney, park tickets, etc.

Hi Mike,

Start by checking out by comparing Disney hotels and theme park tickets. See what works with your schedule and budget. While we don't sell airline tickets, almost every airline flys into Orlando International Airport, some with direct flights! #score

My wife and I are head from Australia in Feb 2018 and we are so looking forward to this. Can't believe how much planning has to go into this place. Will have taken me 50 years to get there. Been to HK Disneyland (2016) and Disneyland (1996, 2000, 2010).

Wow. Hoppy to hear that. We hope to see Hong Kong Disneyland some day!

I am planning to visit 2/19-22. After reading the crowd calendar I think it's bad time :(

Coming with 2 kids 7&4 years of age who don't want to wait much in lines.

I was planning for magical kingdom, Epcot and universal studios

What do you think? Any suggestions? How much will be wait times approximately?

Jan 3, 2017 at 7:11 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Syed,

Yes, that will be a busy time to visit. Use the Crowd Calendar to see what days you should NOT visit a park, then plan to visit a different park that day. Read up on using FastPass+ to get an idea on how to make ride reservations at Disney parks and consider purchasing Universal Express Pass at Universal.

Hi, we are going to visit Magic Kingdom with our kids (2,3, and 5 years) on either 14th of February or 15th of February. What day should we prefer? Take the 14th with crowd level 4 and Early Morning Magic or take the 15th with crowd level 3 and Extra Magic Hours in the Evening?

Jan 5, 2017 at 3:40 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Renate,

Will little ones that may not stay awake to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours in the evening, your best bet would be the Early Morning Magic day on the 14th.

We will be there second week of February...weather and closures are a concern, got info? Disneyworld, epcot and animal kingdom mainly

Nov 22, 2016 at 8:51 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Debi,

This should be a good time in terms of crowds. With weather, it's too early to say. There are cold snaps this time of year, but generally the days warm up and are nice.

I'm planning on a trip of 4 to Disneyworld in Florida around Feb 2017, never been there my kids will be 7&2 , does it still fall under the "Winter time at Disney"? Because I was hoping to have cute dresses walking around.

Oct 3, 2016 at 10:35 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Ana,

It is still winter at Disney. Unless there is a serious cold snap, you could still pack a few cute dresses, but you will need something to keep you warm in the mornings and evenings.

Hoppy planning!

Staying at Cabana hotel and going to Universal in February. Have a Lego kid, so thinking of road tripping to Legoland one day. Thoughts on modes of transportation to get there? Thanks much!

Jan 26, 2016 at 1:07 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kara,

We recommend Mears shuttle if you don't want to rent a car, but we do encourage people to do the math to see which makes the most sense since we offer discounts on car rental when packaged with tickets.

Planning to come start of febuary for 2 weeks with my brother both of us are adults 32 and 28 we both love Rollercoasters and live in the uk

Dec 17, 2015 at 11:21 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi William,

I would consider the 2016 Flex Pass Plus, which includes SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Universal and several water parks. These three offer some terrific coasters. Keep in mind that during your time, Incredible Hulk Coaster at Universal's Islands of Adventure will be under refurbishment, but there are others you will be able to enjoy.

In Orlando around 8 Feb 2016 with 3 offspring. Actually they're 20, 22 & 24 and our main focus is Universal Studios. Are they too old for Disney World and if not, one day or two? They loved Disney Paris, but they were younger.

Nov 16, 2015 at 12:53 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Vicky,

You're never really two old for Disney! I would definitely do two days at Disney.

Hi there-we love your blog and planning ideas. We are planning on going in Feb of 2016-any idea if Splash Mountain will be closed? I really hope not because that's our favorite!


Sep 25, 2015 at 12:50 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Steph,

Splash Mountain normally has refurbishment in January, but it did have an extensive refurbishment in 2014 from January into March. We don't know yet, but will post on our Disney World refurbs page when we do.

We're coming 2/13-20 with 4 girls ages 4, 6, 6, and 8. Never been to Disney, wondering what attractions to focus on for girls who love princesses, and how to set up a meal with a princess?

Sep 23, 2015 at 11:15 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi John,

Thought I had already answered your question ;) For girls who love princesses, this is paradise! Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus and 1900 Park Fare offer princess dining opportunities, and I would make reservations now online. You will definitely want to plan for meeting the princesses — Magic Kingdom and Epcot are the best places to do this! If they will want to meet Elsa and Anna, make sure to read this post.
