Best Time to Go

  • Florida's mild climate extends into the winter months, but there is a chance for cold temperatures – even frost – during the first half of the month in North and Central Florida.

  • Attendance at Disney World is typically the least crowded the first week in February. Expect moderate crowds the second week of February until Presidents' week which is one of the most crowded weeks. The same holds true for most other theme parks and attractions.
