Thinking of visiting Disneyland in February? Love is in the air this month! I’ve got all the information you need to know about Disneyland in February. February is typically a pretty quiet month. Disneyland takes advantage of the lower crowds to do ride maintenance. So, you can expect a few ride closures. February is often rainy, but that won’t be a problem if you’re prepared! I’ve got a full guide with lots of tips for Disneyland in the rain here. Genie Plus is up and running at Disneyland now! Click here for more information on the new system.


For planning purposes only. Crowd levels subject to change

Visiting Disneyland in February during the beginning of the month is the perfect time for lower crowds. In February, the holiday crowds are gone.The spring break crowds haven’t arrived yet. Lower crowds mean lower wait times, but it also means shorter park hours. If you’re concerned about crowd levels, avoid Presidents day. Super bowl Sunday also draws large crowds. Some conventions may affect the February crowd levels. You can check out the convention schedule here.

Valentine’s Day

Disneyland celebrates Valentine’s Day with merchandise, specialty food and a few decorations. If you’ll be there for Valentines Day check out this post. The Valentine’s Day celebration also includes “Minnie’s Valentine Surprise”. This is a park wide scavenger hunt for secret valentines that Minnie Mouse has hidden for her friends.

What To Expect:

Wondering what to expect at Disneyland in February? Lower crowds mean shorter park hours. Be aware, fireworks and parades may be limited to weekends. Some rides will be closed for maintenance. Keep a close eye on the weather so you’re prepared!

What to Pack

Having a well packed bag is incredibly helpful anytime you’re on a Disney trip. Don’t get stuck paying a small fortune for something you easily could have brought from home or purchased at a much lower price at home. Here’s a list of Disney park bag essentials that I like to have with me while I’m inside the parks. I also save a ton of money by buying things on Amazon before my trip. Here’s my Disney trip Amazon list.


Visiting Disneyland in February is a great time to find deals! Hotels are anxious to fill rooms, so they often offer lower prices, especially if you travel midweek.
