President's Day weekend is crowded, but in other weeks, crowds are low to moderate. The weather is a bit unpredictable, and can range from highs in the low 50s to the high 80s, often over just a few days. Theme park operating hours are shortened, and some attractions will be closed for refurbishment. Swimming pools and water parks are heated and open year-round.
