Mid-February 2020 at Walt Disney World–Events, Closures, and Discounts

Share This!

Sponsored by Small World Vacations.

Here’s what to expect for the second half of February and into March 2020 at Walt Disney World.

Events

  • The ever-popular Epcot International Festival of the Arts continues through February 24. This popular event includes everything imaginable in the realm of arts including live performances, a scavenger hunt, artistic food, and hands-on events and demonstrations, plus all sorts of artwork on display (and some for purchase).
  • The RunDisney season continues, with Princess Half Marathon Weekend coming up on February 20-23. Expect the biggest traffic impacts on that Sunday, but park crowds will be minimally impacted.
  • Crowds also see a bump towards the end of the month with the start of Mardi Gras and people flocking to Florida to enjoy the amazing weather this time of year.
  • Looking at March, earlier in the month is better from a crowd perspective. Crowds continue to build throughout the month.
  • Epcot’s next festival, the International Flower and Garden festival begins March 4. I know I can’t wait to see how beautiful the park becomes with so many flowers!
