The WORST Week to Go to Disney World in February

Published: February 24, 2024

You might think of February as a slow time in Disney World. Depending on the week in February, this could be right or wrong!


February has a holiday weekend that you may have forgotten about — President’s Day — when many kids are off school. On top of that, Disney World also hosts the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend which runs from February 22nd to 26th, 2024, and brings massive crowds of runners to the parks. So what does that mean for the wait times at your favorite rides? Well, buckle up because it’s NOT pretty… .

Below, we have listed each average wait time from the past week from highest to lowest. The wait times have seriously increased since last week — take a look for yourself!
