Theme Parks – Frequently Asked Questions


When is the best time to visit the Disneyland Resort?


It's always a great time to visit Disney theme parks! However, when planning a trip to the Disneyland Resort, expect lower crowds from mid-September until mid-November (before the Thanksgiving break). Mid-January until mid-March is another time when potentially lower crowds are expected. The parks are generally less busy during these 2 periods, which make it an ideal time to explore.

Generally there is no "off-peak" time to visit, but throughout the year some of our Magic Key holders experience blockout days that make crowd levels more manageable for many Guests. Planning a Disneyland Resort vacation during less busy, less crowded times also results in a greater choice of available rooms at the Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

The benefit of visiting the Disneyland Resort during less crowded months is that wait times may be shorter, allowing you to do more. However, Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park typically reduce their operating hours at such times. Additionally, attractions are more frequently closed for refurbishment and fewer entertainment options and events may be scheduled during these periods.

If you want to attend while the theme parks have extended hours, entertainment, events and most attractions operating, plan your visit on a weekend, including extended holiday weekends during:

  • Christmas and Spring Break
  • June until August

However, crowding is usually higher during these times.

For a complete list of hours, entertainment, events and refurbishments, go to the Park Hours section and enter the dates of your visit or contact Disneyland Resort Guest Information at (714) 781-4565. Guests under 18 must have parent or guardian permission to call.
