When is the best time to visit the Disneyland Resort?
Theme Parks – Frequently Asked Questions
Selecting the best time to visit the Disneyland Resort depends upon your interests. If you want to visit when the number of Guests is expected to be lower, plan to visit mid-week (Tuesdays to Thursdays) during:
- mid-September through mid-November
- mid-January through mid-March
- 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, 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 during these periods and there may be fewer entertainment and events scheduled at these times.
If you want to attend while the theme parks have extended hours, entertainment, events and most attractions operating—plan to visit on a weekend, 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.
