Planning for Walt Disney World in February

by Leap on December 2, 2020 41 Orlando   Video

Planning for Disney World in February - PinterestAfter the holidays have finally calmed down and you're ready for another winter getaway from work or school, what better place to hop than sunny Orlando? Walt Disney World in February has fun events and pretty great weather. While February is no longer considered a "dead" time at Disney (spoiler alert: there is no real dead time at Disney), minus the week of Presidents Day, crowd levels are generally low to average compared to the rest of the year. While you might not expect it, February is an awesome time to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth!

Overview of Walt Disney World in February

While February is officially the month of love, the parks are fairly 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. Keep an eye out on Disney World's social media accounts around Valentine's Day, as special photo-ops (and toadally adorable treats) are announced. In recent years, Cinderella's carriage has been on display in Magic Kingdom for cute couple photo-ops, and sometimes you can catch a prince or two hanging around with the princesses — a rare treat!

Crowds at Walt Disney World in February

Disney World in February - Mickey and Minnie

As far as crowds go, Valentine's Day itself has no appreciable impact on traffic. But the parks do see elevated crowds because of Presidents 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 Orlando planning app for iPhone and make sure you get to the park before opening to take advantage of the lowest crowds! Check the crowd calendar to see recommended days for the whole month (and beyond). Also, be sure to book your Disney Park Pass reservations! Disney World is still managing crowds by limiting capacity inside the theme parks due to COVID-19. Even with limited capacity, crowds have trended similarly to years past. For more information about crowds in 2021 and beyond, hop over to our full post.

Closings and Refurbishments at Walt Disney World in February

Many of the water rides see seasonal refurbishments in the month of February. Disney's Typhoon Lagoon is typically under seasonal closure (though in 2021, both water parks will be closed until early March, when Blizzard Beach will reopen). At Walt Disney World, Splash Mountain, Liberty Square Riverboat and Kali River Rapids often undergo refurbishments. For more details and a list of all refurbishments, check our closings page.

Weather at Walt Disney World in February

In February, temperatures are on the rise, with an average high of 74 and a low of 53. There will be sunny days, so don't froget the swimsuits to take a dip (or cannonball!) in those heated pools! You will still need a jacket for the evenings and chilly mornings.

Events at Walt Disney World in February

I will be there the second week in February. Do I need to purchase my tickets in advance or can I wait until I get there?

Hi Leslie,

We'd highly recommend purchasing in advance (you can get discount tickets from us!) so that you can secure your Disney Park Pass reservations.

Me and my husband are planning on visit Disney world next month for our 6 year anniversary and I’m just trying to find out about the weather is it going to be raining or cold or to hot to bare

Hi Kristina!

The average high in Orlando in February is 75 degrees, with a low of 54 degrees. Things should be pretty moderate! As far as rain goes, there is generally an average of 4 days of rain; things can be more unpredictable in terms of rain in Orlando, so we suggest bringing a poncho and having a radar app handy. You'll have a more concrete idea of what to expect a little closer to your trip when you can check the real-time forecast. Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!

Planning a February trip and we are hoping swimming is possible, do they ever close pools/splash areas at resorts in the winter months? We are very excited to check out the kids splash area at the Poly!

Hi Amanda!

These are sometimes closed for refurbishments in the winter, but on the whole, these stay open even in the winter - and are heated! :) Enjoy!

Hi,

We were planning a trip and just realized it will be over Mardi Gras (2/25-2/29). Have the parks been really crowded the past few years bc of southern states having a break? We can be flexible so wondering if we should change. Thanks

Reply
Aug 7, 2019 at 10:10 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi there!

If you have some flexibility, we'd recommend hopping to the World earlier in the month. Mardi Gras gets pretty busy, plus there's going to be a runDisney event from Feb. 21-23, which will bring in more crowds. The first two weeks of the month look the best according to our Crowd Calendar!

Hoppy planning!

What are the typical park hours during February? Excluding the week of Presidents Day. We will be going the first week of the month.

Hi Liz!

This past year, in February, many of the parks were open from 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. or so. This can vary, so we'd recommend checking back soon to see what Disney World's calendar shows once it's available.

Hoppy planning!

This is incorrect since It’s been a few years since typhoon lagoon was open in February. Very disappointing.

Hi! My family is participating in the Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Both children (ages 10 &12) are doing the 5K and I am doing the 10K and Half. I was unable to register myself for the 5K because it filled up quickly. My kids are nervous about getting themselves to the corrals due to the crowds and possible chaos. Will I be able to escort them to the corrals? Could I run with them? I've looked all over for this information and just can't find it.

Thank you so much for any info!

Christy

Hi Christy!

You must be registered to run with your kiddos. However, you will toad-ally be able to walk them to the corrals, and there are plenty of places for you to watch them run along the way.

Hoppy planning!

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.

Reply
May 26, 2017 at 10:20 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

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

Hi,

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?

Reply
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?

Reply

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.
