        Probably the end of Feb. We went springbreak this year because of the girls being in school. I won’t go again for springbreak because of the crowds…. The past 7 years we have gone in Feb and have really enjoyed it.

          We have been the last 2 in February. This past year was when we wound up with a child who was throwing up, and the year before was when we got the news that my Grandfather had cancer. I have deemed February unlucky for us! But needless to say, I plan on being there this February, the very end of February! Maybe we can see you there!

    Yes I wish I was on this boat! The Ferryboat with the red panels is The Richard F. Irvine, during the time when Walt Disney World was being built, (quoting a bit from Wikipedia here) Dick headed design and planning for all Disneyland attractions, ranging from the Haunted Mansion to Pirates of the Caribbean. Irvine became executive vice president and chief operations officer at Walt Disney Imagineering in 1967. Irvine died in 1976 in Los Angeles, California after suffering with illness which prohibited him from ever seeing the complete Walt Disney World Resort which opened in 1971. This ferry was named the Magic Kingdom II until it was re-christened as the Irvine in 1999. The boat is in the dock at the Magic Kingdom, you can tell this because of the roof of the Wilderness lodge peeking over the treetops in the background. If it is pulling out form the dock is is presumably headed to the TTC (Ticket & Transportation center, to drop off guests leaving the Magic Kingdom, and pick up a new group of guests coming to the park.
