A vacation to Orlando is always a good idea; however, it is an extra good idea in February.
The weather is absolutely perfect, the crowds are nowhere to be found, and there are so many fun festivals happening at the theme parks. You’re bound to fall in love with The City Beautiful during the month of love.
1. Perfect Weather
We’re going to start with the best reason first.
Florida is known for its year-round sunshine. In the summer months, this can mean close to 100° F in addition to high humidity levels.
In February, the sun mixed with the chilly wind makes for the dreamiest weather. It’s not too hot and not too cold, it’s just right with highs in the mid 70°F’s. Indulge in this goldilocks weather as much as you can when you visit, this means perfect park days, long walks, and poolside relaxing with your favorite book.
Once the sun sets, it does feel quite cool as the temperature drops into the high 50°F’s. We recommend bringing a light jacket to keep you comfortable throughout the evening.
2. Low Crowds
If you’re looking for a calmer side of Orlando, you’ll love it here in February.
While it’s not a ghost town by any means, the crowds are significantly lower than a peak month like July. This is especially true for our theme parks, such as Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando. Lower crowds mean you get to do more with your time. Rather than wait in a long queue, you can ride a coaster or eat your favorite park food.
This also rings true for popular restaurants and bars, it’s a bit easier to snag a table and get food in your tummy quicker.
3. Unique Theme Park Festivals
If the perfect weather and low crowds isn’t enough to convince you why February reigns supreme as the best time to visit Orlando, maybe some of these exciting theme park festivals will help.
- At Disney’s EPCOT, you can experience the shortest but most creative festival, International Festival of the Arts. This festival runs just under 40 days. This festival is packed with arts including a show-stopping DISNEY ON BROADWAY concert series, delicious dishes that define culinary artistry, tons of performing art acts, and visual art pieces from talented artists who even make appearances throughout the event. It’s one of the most unique festivals at EPCOT and arguably the most elaborate.
- Universal Orlando is throwing a party fit for a king for their Mardi Gras celebration. This event showcases full-sized floats, delicious Cajun-inspired treats, and entertainment options to let the good times roll.
- SeaWorld Orlando kicks off the Seven Seas Food Festival which offer sample sizes of global cuisine, specialty drinks, and electrifying concerts. We love this fun way to eat, drink, and explore all the park has to offer.
