This crowd planner may help. Looks like the week you are interested in will be quite busy. Its school holidays in France too.

It also may be cold and wet. Worth looking at May half term if it doesnt clash with a French holiday.

It's likely to be fairly busy this year due to the Frozen festival - we went last year during the pirates and princess festival and it was busy busy, but that may also be due to the unseasonably warm weather bringing in the day guests.

We really like Feb half term and have done it 5 times so far. The only downside is the short park hours and the very uncertain weather - we packed for winter last year and had to go to val d'europe and buy sunglasses and t-shirts as it ended up being in the early 20s every day but the year before we needed thermals every day and even then we were cold!

Feb half term is (in my opinion) the worst of the holidays. The price is higher as most of europe have similar hols (depends on your school too), days are short, weather is usually cold and wet, ride closures might make an impact (jan seems to be the worst for ride closures).

Plus with christmas out of season the park doesnt look as nice with regards to the weather.

Id say crowds would average getting busier at end of week. Holidays are busier as it is a perfect annual pass break for school kids.

Buuuut, once we went in Feb and it snowed, that changed everything as it was lovely.

Honestly, I wouldnt in Feb ever again

It was cold, wet and miserable, place was packed with the French being off school as well, lots not running with with rain.

We went the following October half term and had a much better time.

We have been having this dilemma too after deciding not to go in the new year - I can't believe how expensive May is this year; especially as Ascension Day falls just before the UK half term dates (rather than during like it was this year).

We've therefore decided to do Feb half term (18th - 23rd), this will be our 5th time doing Feb and we've had all sorts of weathers - don't think we'll ever be as lucky as to get the heat we had last year but in my opinion there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing! So as long as you layer up, pack thermals you will be fine!

As I mentioned above, the shorter park hours can be a downside for February but with my 3 year old it will actually be a blessing as it will mean we can all spend the full day in the parks rather than having to leave early to take her bed.

I went in early February 2018 and the first day was freezing as there was a wind then it snowed.
It was challenging but beautiful and very quiet and warmer than the first day.

If you are prepared for the weather - layers rather than bulky then you will enjoy it - hot chocolate and nutella crepes kept me warm
