General Information

Get answers to general questions about the Disneyland Resort.

Selecting the best time to visit the Disneyland Resort depends upon your interests:

  • If you want to visit when the number of Guests is sometimes lower, plan to stay mid-week (Tuesdays to Thursdays) during:
    • mid-September through mid-November
    • mid-January through mid-March
    • or mid-April through mid-May

The benefit of visiting the Disneyland Resort when the number of Guests is low is that wait times may be shorter and you can do more. However, Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park typically reduce their operating hours at such times. Also, there may be fewer entertainment and events, and attractions are more frequently closed for refurbishment.

  • If you want to visit while the theme parks have extended hours, entertainment, events and most attractions operating, plan your stay for weekends, including extended holiday weekends during:
    • Christmas and Spring Break
    • June to August

However, during these times, the number of Guests is usually increased.

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 age 18 must have parent or guardian permission to call.

Disney Characters appear throughout the Disneyland Resort:

The Disneyland Resort offers a Package Check Service. If you are staying at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, you may have your purchases sent directly to the Hotel. If you are just here for the day or are staying at a non-Disney hotel, you may check your purchases until you leave at:

  • Elias & Company in Disney California Adventure Park
  • Newsstand at Disneyland Park
  • The Star Trader at Disneyland Park
  • Pioneer Mercantile at Disneyland Park

Various attractions may be temporarily closed for refurbishment or scheduled maintenance. To view a list, go to the Park Hours and check the dates of your visit.

Plan about 2 days for the theme parks and one or 2 nights for Downtown Disney District.

It is possible to visit both theme parks in one day, but since there is so much to see and do, we recommend planning a multi-day visit. There are many multi-day ticket options that allow you to explore both parks at a more relaxed pace.

You can, however, visit both parks on the same day if:

In Southern California, you should dress according to the seasons:

  • During the summer months, pack light clothing, shorts, sunscreen, a light jacket and bathing suits for the pool.
  • During the winter months, be prepared to dress in layers. Pack jeans and t-shirts or long-sleeved shirts for the day time, and a sweatshirt and heavy jacket for early mornings and evenings.
  • Come prepared for the unexpected. Pack an umbrella and the appropriate clothing in case the weather suddenly turns wet or unseasonably warm or cool.
  • Comfortable walking shoes are a good idea all year round.

The parks are a casual, family-oriented environment. We suggest you dress comfortably, wear good walking shoes and check the local weather report before you leave for the parks.

Ensuring that the parks are family friendly is an important part of the Disney experience. In that spirit, we ask you to use your discretion and common sense. Attire that is not appropriate for the theme parks (and which may result in refusal of admittance) includes but is not limited to:

  • Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as representative of an actual Disney character
  • Masks (unless you are dressing up for a particular event)
  • Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics
  • Excessively torn clothing
  • Clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment
  • Tattoos that could be considered objectionable, such as with obscene language or graphics

A Guest is allowed into the parks if her or his hair (or make-up, if applicable) has been made to resemble a Disney Princess or character (for example, after a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover) provided the Guest is not also wearing a costume or clothed to look like the character.

These guidelines apply to personal and rented strollers:

  • Strollers are not permitted on escalators. Elevators and ramps are available at certain locations.
  • A child must be removed from his or her stroller while riding on a parking lot tram.
  • Do not leave personal belongings in an unattended stroller.
  • Strollers may be moved by a Cast Member due to operational needs.
  • Rented strollers may not be taken beyond the Guest screening tents located in the Esplanade between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park.

The best way to find an item lost at the Disneyland Resort is to visit Lost and Found, located next to Guest Relations to the left of the Main Entrance of Disney California Adventure Park.

  • Bats Day: May 16 to 18, 2014
  • Gay Days Anaheim: October 3 to 5, 2014

There are many different events that take place throughout the Disneyland Resort during different times of the year. Due to the number and variety of events and activities that take place nearly every day across the Resort, we are unable to share details of all events during the booking process.
