Presidents day weekend 2017

Looking for advice for places to go over Presidents day weekend.
We've got WDW and Universal tickets for 10 Feb to 24th Feb and I know that the middle weekend will be packed, so wondered if anyone can advise on the quietest places to go.
Wondered how busy KSC will be that weekend. This is our 2nd trip and visited KSC in 2012 and would love to return there.

Looking forward to replies. We are planning on just cracking on and if it is busy then make good use of our FP's. We are only there for 10 days this trip so can't afford to take time out from the parks really. If it is warm enough we will spend some time at Blizzard Beach which hopefully won't be so busy

We generally booked a night at a Universal hotel for Presidents weekend and made good use of FOTL for 2 days.

It's my 50th birthday on 18th Feb. We'll be spending the day at universal but it's our last day (fly home on 19th).

We will have done all the rides so we will take in the scenery, stop for a few drinks, dinner and cocktails at Toothsome before watching the Collective Soul Mardi Gras concert.

We'll round the night off with a few more city walk drinks.

The perfect 50th birthday. You are all welcome to join us

When we've been at that time we've not done parks on the weekend. We have been on an airboat ride, had a walk in celebration and been to lake Louise state park. This year we are only there for 8 nights so doing g Disney parks but getting there for opening and only doing half a day.
