Disney World Crowd Calendar February 2020
My Disney World Crowd Calendar for February 2020 will be a mostly moderate crowd month, except President’s Week and the Princess Half Marathon Weekend, when the crowds can become quite substantial. The only event scheduled is the Epcot Festival of the Arts, so we might find a few attractions down for refurbishment. Those refurbishments are typically listed a few months before hand. Water rides may be closed. Check my Attraction Refurbishment page closer to your date.
While President’s Week is typically insanely busy, you can manage them with good touring plans and Fastpass+ usage. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, rise early on your Magic Kingdom day and take advantage of the early opening of the Magic Kingdom. When visiting the parks, I recommend that you avoid the Extra Magic Hour parks as they will draw in more guests.
What will the weather be like during your February trip?
- Average high temperature: 73°F
- Average low temperature: 50°F
- Mean temperature: 62°F
- Record high temperature: 89°F (1988)
- Record low temperature: 17°F (2000)
- Average Precipitation: 2.71 in.
The weather in February is quite cool and typically doesn’t rain as much. Wear layers because 75 degrees with the sun shining on you in Florida feels hot and at night the damp air can feel pretty bitter with a light wind. Be sure to bring a jacket and hat.
Should I use Extra Magic Hours privilege?
Avoid the trap of visiting a park on its longest hours day. More people will be there and the wait times can be 30% to 100% higher than other days.
If you are planning to use Extra Magic Hours, use the morning ones, they are a great benefit, if you leave after lunch or parade time. Avoid the parks that offer evening Extra Magic Hours because they have large crowds at night and many rides have long lines (Hollywood Studios and Epcot). The exception would be the Magic Kingdom late at night because most guests won’t stay up from 1am to 3am in the morning. If you choose a Late Extra Magic Hour park, you should plan to sleep in the next day.
