February at Disney World can best be characterized as a time with mild temps, relatively light crowds for much of the month, and sometimes lots of refurbishments.

Most people visiting Florida can pack summer clothes since it's usually hot, but it can be quite cool when visiting in February at Disney World. I suggest planning to wear layers. Start the day with a jacket and/or long sleeves and then remove layers as the temperatures warm up. Some people do swim in February, but not too many.

Explanation of park recommendations and abbreviations below
In general, I recommend avoiding parks with Extra Magic Hours because they tend to be the busiest parks that day. Animal Kingdom is an exception because it's usually not too bad, even on EMH days.

Magic Kingdom usually sees a surge on Saturdays, so other parks are usually a better choice.

MK = Magic Kingdom, EP = Epcot, HS = Hollywood Studios, AK = Animal Kingdom,
TL = Typhoon Lagoon, BB = Blizzard Beach, EMH = Extra Magic Hour

Trip planning checklist

July or earlier: book your hotel, make your daily plans and choose dining options

August or early September: 180 days before your trip begins, make dining reservations (website is available at 6 a.m. eastern, phone lines are open at 7 a.m. Eastern). Use the dates on the calendar to show you when to do that.

October - December: book flights (tips on finding best flights)

December or early January: if you're staying onsite, you can start making FastPass+ reservations 60 days before your trip begins. Use dates on the calendar to see when you can start making FP+ reservations online beginning at 7 a.m. eastern time. You can also check in online for your resort room if you'd like.

January or earlier: set up Magical Express, purchase Memory Maker and order groceries

February: pack (packing list to help you) and go to Disney World!

March: finalize PhotoPass pics and order within 45 days after your trip
