Advice Needed Please - Feb 2020 and half board options?
« on: April 27, 2019, 06:32:12 PM »
Hi all!!

It's been a while since our last trip to DLP and me and the husband are looking at taking advantage of the early booking winter offer on the DLP site (money off plus free half board). Have a few questions though that will help us decide whether or not to go for it so if we could get some advice that would be amazing!

1. We would be looking at Feb 2020 when the UK schools have the Feb half term. How busy is DLP that time of year? Wasn't sure if it is just UK schools off around that time or if its a common school break across Europe?

2. What sort of park opening hours do they have in Feb? I know the parks normally close a bit earlier over winter but wasn't sure by how much. And is the Disney Village open until late even in the winter?

3. We were looking at the Santa Fe which would include only the "standard" option for the half board which looks like it is just the buffet places to eat. We've not really been to the buffet places previous times so are they all the same sort of food or do different ones have different themed cuisines based on their location? e.g. some are tex-mex, some seafood, etc

4. I believe the Season of the Force is normally what they have into Feb. Does that normally go through to the end of the month? And are there any other seasonal events in Feb? (I'm sure the Princess vs Pirates one they've done before is around Feb, although I might be mistaken?). I know the seasons for next year aren't confirmed yet but previous years is normally a good guideline at the very least.

Would really appreciate any insight you could give to answer these few questions we have.

Look forward to reading your responses!  :D

february is normaly very quiet and very cold.

2. What sort of park opening hours do they have in Feb? I know the parks normally close a bit earlier over winter but wasn't sure by how much. And is the Disney Village open until late even in the winter?

last year the parks where open till 7. Disney village is usaly open till later.

3. We were looking at the Santa Fe which would include only the "standard" option for the half board which looks like it is just the buffet places to eat.

  there can be some overlap but there are specialty buffets. Tex mex at the santa fe and cheyenne bufet. Tex mex at the billy bob buffet. General french and continental food at plaza gardens and restaurant des stars. And generic arabian food at agrabah cafe

4. I believe the Season of the Force is normally what they have into Feb. Does that normally go through to the end of the month? And are there any other seasonal events in Feb? (I'm sure the Princess vs Pirates one they've done before is around Feb, although I might be mistaken?).

there are no definitif dates for season of the force and the princes festival. Season of the force will start in januari but dont know when or how long
