February is one of our favorite times of the year to go to Disney World. The weather is PERFECT! It’s not during the rainy season so showers are minimal to nonexistent. Typically it’s the perfect temperature too. We’ve been to Disney in February for the last 3 years in a row and the temperatures average in the 70s. It’s definitely cooler at night/early morning but nothing a light sweater or jacket for an hour or two won’t fix. We have also had some days in the low 90s so I suggest wearing layers you can shed! For my son I like to put him in pants and a T-shirt and bring a light jacket. For my girls a short sleeve dress with a sweater over it and leggings under so they can shed the leggings and sweaters as needed. February used to be a super low crowd time for Disney but there is no such thing as low crowd times anymore. The Princess marathon, Presidents’ Day long weekend, and Mardis Gras now bring high crowds to February but don’t let crowds ruin your trip!
We kicked off this trip with dinner at Be Our Guest and honestly I don’t recommend it. This was the second time we have had dinner there and it was just as bad as the first. Don’t get me wrong, the food was wonderful! The timing and service it what has absolutely sucked both times we’ve been. Be prepared to spend 2 hours at this meal. If you’re on the dining plan it’s really not worth 2 credits and if you’re not on the dining plan I don’t think it’s worth the $55/adult price. My son really loves the beast though and it’s the only place you can meet him at WDW so we continue on
My lamb was wonderful, no complaints there!
Adult dessert with “the grey stuff” in the center
Super cute kids dessert plate. They can decorate their “chip” and it’s all edible.
Random fun fact, all the parks have a baby care center and they are wonderful! They have bathrooms, changing tables, nursing rooms, rooms for kids to run around in and get some wiggles out in a safe contained environment, TVs, and items for purchase that you may need (diapers, wipes, baby food, diaper rash cream, etc). The baby care center at Animal Kingdom pictured below is my favorite, it’s so nice and usually pretty quite.
We always have our usual breakfast at Tusker House because as I’ve mentioned before it’s our favorite character meal. It’s also one of the cheapest character meals so definitely worth taking advantage of!
We stayed at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort again on this trip and no trip to the Poly is complete without a meal at Ohana. We chose breakfast because, characters, duh. Breakfast characters include Lilo, Stitch, Mickey, and Pluto. Ohana dinner is also wonderful but no characters. It’s worth noting that if you have a window seat at dinner and are there during Magic Kingdom fireworks you will have a great view!
We actually got to check out Storybook dining at Artist Point at Disney’s Wildness Lodge on this trip which was right after it opened. I have zero complaints with this dining experience! Our food was wonderful and so was the character interaction. Characters include Snow White, 2 of the Seven Dwarves, and the Evil Queen. The Queen was my favorite!
This was our second time to do the Spirit of Aloha dinner show (luau) at Poly and definitely our last. The food is good but the show is terribly boring. It’s nothing more than a few people talking to each other and some songs. Definitely not worth the price or 2 dining credits.
The strawberry bars are one of our family’s favorite snack items! Also, if you’re in the market for a double stroller I HIGHLY recommend the City Mini double by Baby Jogger! We have 4 under 4 so we have 2 of these and we love them so much. They’re smaller than a standard doorway so I never have trouble fitting in places. They’re so easy to steer and maneuver I can easily push them both at the same time. The best part though is that they fold almost completely flat with one quick pull of a strap, you can do it one handed!
While we’re talking about snacks, my kids love the Mickey rice Kristen treats and I love the chocolate covered strawberries! You can find them all over WDW decorated so cute! Especially during the holidays!
This trip we got to experience dinner at Cinderella’s Royal Table for the first time and it was so special! Prince Charming was actually there to greet us with Cinderella which my son loved! Our food was amazing! All the girls got magic wands and the boys got swords. Pictured below is the clock strikes twelve chocolate mousse dessert and the kids decorate your own cupcake dessert. This is one meal that I think is definitely worth the price and 2 dining credits!
A WDW breakfast staple for us is definitely Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary resort! It’s such a classic Disney character meal location and so much fun! Definitely plan it for your Magic Kingdom day because it’s a 5 minute walk from the Contemporary to MK!
