Magical Happenings

February 2018 is great time to visit Disney World! ANYTIME you can visit Disney World is a good time, but there are better weeks than others to visit, based on crowds and “Disney happenings”. We do have some pretty BIG news to share! Epcot’s Festival of the Arts will be returning! Get all of the information on that right here: FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS. The festival will take place in Epcot from January 12, 2018 and run through February 19, 2018.

Weather in February

For the most part, weather in February is downright nice! Highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s and 60’s. Be sure to bring a jacket, especially if you’re staying late for fireworks!
