Disneyland in February 2013

We will be visiting DL towards the end of February 2013. What should we expect as far as crowds this time of year?

Last week should be low crowds with the exception of the weekends. According to Touring Plans, it is predicted to be a 1 (10% occupancy) for 2/25-2/28.

We were there the second and third week of Feb 2012 I think the longest line we encountered was star tours and Indy at 1 HR, but that was the stand by. Everything else was under a reasonable 20 mins. The weather was great. All sun shine, even hot enough we 'needed' to go on splash to cool off.
We will be there the first week of Aug 2013. Have fun planning !

That's the week we're planning on, too! We chose it because we are thinking (hoping!) the crowds will be lower.

President's day weekend can get busy. I don't recall it being that bad when we went this past February.

Was there the week before President's Day this year and the crowds were fine - we normally go at the end of September and the crowds were about the same.

As much as I love DL, I don't think I would love it nearly as much if I had to wait more than 15-20 minutes to get on a ride, so those times of year are perfect for us (the exceptions, as noted above were Star Tours, Indy and TSMM, which were 45-60 min when we didn't have fastpasses for the first two).

The only issue in February may be the weather. We're from Canada, so we were happy to trade 6 feet of snow for shorts and t-shirts, but for those from more southerly locations, I saw a lot of sweatshirts and even some touques.

We will also be in DL the last week of February including the first 2 days of March!

Any idea as to whether there will be any discounts or special rates available at either DLH or GC? When would be a good time to book? Also, we will be purchasing an AP while there..how do you find out what the AP hotel rates will be if you haven't yet activated or purchased your AP?

I anticipate the crowds to be quite low and hopefully the temperature warm!

What?!

We were there for President's Day (2012) and the following week. The crowds were horrible with extremely long wait times. I will never put my family through that again. Any holidays, no matter how small they may be, will be avoided like the plague.

If you thought that week wasn't that bad then I'd hate to see what you consider bad.

haha I dont know. I guess the only time I "measure" the crowds is when they are obviously very low. We watched the parades twice and were able to get a bench seat 30-45 min ahead of time (we eat while we wait). So maybe we just had good timing/got lucky but that usually doesn't happen that close to the parade. We didn't once bring up that we thought it was particularly busy. But maybe we feel like busy is normal for DL and not busy is abnormal.

Costco 4 day pass needs to be used by 2/28/13

Hi guys,

I am totally new to this board. Thank you for all this wonderful information...I've been lurking for a while.

So I wanted to ask you all if you think it will be crowded at Disneyland at the end of February because of Costco's discounted disneyland tickets needing to be used by 2/28/13? Do you think everyone who has been holding on to them will run to Disneyland that week or the week before? I have no idea how many there are out there but when I read about that I got nervous. It could be nothing though so wanted to ask.

Thanks for your opinions!

-Teresa
