Disneyland Crowds in February 2019
Crowds in February are among the lowest of the year, which is why it is one of my favorite times to visit Disneyland. Generally, the weekends will be a little busier than weekdays, but the crowds are still manageable. How fun would it be to spend Valentine’s Day at the Disneyland Resort? Be sure to check out my post, The BEST Days to Visit Disneyland in 2018 for a yearly crowd calendar.
Average Weather at Disneyland in February
The weather at Disneyland in February is actually pretty pleasant. The average high during the day is in the upper 60s or low 70s. At night, the low is generally in the upper 40s or low 50s. There a usually a few rainy days and there will be some days that are cloudy, but it is winter after all. Plan on warm days and cool nights. Check out the weather forecast for February 2019 here!
What to Pack for Disneyland in February
Knowing what to pack in February at Disneyland is important. You don’t want to be unprepared and end up having to use your vacation budget on things that could easily have been brought from home with a little planning. Make sure you check out my post on How Amazon Can Save You Money at Disney and The Top 10 Disney Park Bag Essentials to help you when you pack. Below you’ll find few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Disneyland in February.
An Umbrella or Poncho & Stroller Protection
Although the weather forecast for Disneyland in February usually only calls for a few days of rain, we all know that the weather is unpredictable. Be prepared with a small travel umbrella or a poncho. A poncho can also come in handy to wear on rides like Splash Mountain or Grizzly River Run to keep your clothes dry. You’ll also need to think about keeping your stroller dry if you have one. For some strollers you can buy covers that are specifically made for them, but those can be expensive. I like to buy a shower curtain liner from Dollar Tree and use cloths pins to hold in place over the stroller. It costs $2.00 and works like a champ!
The California sun can be brutal, even in the winter months. Make sure that you are ready for the UV rays by packing some sunblock and a hat, and sunglasses. Also, make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!
A Travel Blanket
A travel blanket is also a good idea to bring along to Disneyland in February. Not only will it keep you warm on those chilly February Disneyland nights, but it can also serve another purpose. It can be a great to sit on while watching a parade or fireworks show.
Pack for both Warm and Cold Weather
The mornings and evenings at Disneyland can be pretty chilly, but the days will be warm. This makes packing clothing for Disneyland in February a little tricky. Pack jeans or long pants to stay warm and comfortable during the cooler temperatures. Wear a short-sleeved top and bring a lightweight jacket or sweater that can be kept in a backpack or worn around your waist during the day.
Pack Adorable Disney Apparel
Before any Disney vacation, I like to check out Jane.com for adorable and affordable Disney vacation t-shirts! I have found so many cute shirts for only $13.99! Their deals change daily though, so make sure to check back often or follow me on Instagram to keep up on all of the amazing Disney-themed merchandise!

Disneyland Ride Closures
The downside with visiting Disneyland during one of the slower months, is that there are generally more ride closures than other times of the year. Because of this, it’s important to stay up to date with ride closures by checking Disneyland’s website. Disneyland seems to update their list one to two months ahead of time, so check back in December or January.
Disneyland Ticket Savings in February
There aren’t a lot of Disneyland ticket savings out there, but they can be found if you know where to look. Make sure that if you buy Disney tickets from a third party, that they are an authorized ticket seller. I usually buy my park tickets from Get Away Today. Their ticket prices are almost always a few dollars cheaper than Disneyland’s gate prices.
Get Away Today is also doing a special right now on their Disneyland tickets. You can an Adult 3-Day Park Hopper Ticket for the price of a Child’s 3-Day Park Hopper ticket! That’s up to a $19 savings per ticket! Check getawaytoday.com for current deals. Right now you can use the promo code MommyMouse to get $10 off any 2-night or longer Southern California package.
