I want to plan a trip to disney in February- need help!

It'll be me, dh and out 3 year old daughter. Hopefully I'll be pregnant again, but that's a different story.

Is Disney crazy during President's week?

Last time I went I stayed in the animal kingdom lodge w/3 friends- that made it affordable.

Where do I start my Disney research? I don't travel much and usually like to let others do the planning, but this time I'm taking control- or we'll never go!!

The crowds will usually be heavier over any holiday, and Presidents Day is no different. Add to that the fact that Disney is offering its FREE DINING promotoin leading into that weekend and it makes it that much more popular.

If your dates are flexible, my suggestion would be most anytime in January or early February. If your dates are not flexible, I think you can still have a great time as long as you do a little pre-planning and know what to expect.

Hope that helps!

Can you avoid presidents' week? The rest of february will have very light crowds, but presidents' week is pretty crowded.

I almost always stay at Value resorts.

I think the best place to start is The Unnofficial Guide to WDW. it has more information than you'll ever need, profiles every hotel in depth, etc.

A few things I'd say to start with-

1) Register on the disney site and play around. you may get pin code offers mailed to you

2) They are offering free dining for the winter/spring. This can be a great deal

3) If you're planning to go for more than 12 days in a one year period, or even if you're not, it may make sense to get an annual pass, or for one person in your party to get one to take advantage of room discounts, particularly in the off season (you wouldn't also get free dining though).

4) In terms of which hotel class you choose think about how much time you plan to spend in the room and what amenities you need. If it's not a lot of time and you can deal with sharing close-ish quarters, and you don't need an onsite full service restaurant, a value resort will do. A moderate will give you a bit more space and more adult theming but the price can be a lot more.

5) has a good ticket planner, helping you decide which ticket is best for you.

6) be aware of special events that can both impact crowds and your experience
