Discover lots of fun no matter when you come!

Every month offers unique and entertaining ways to experience the Disneyland Resort. Learn about the distinct advantages of planning a visit during each season—from late-night summer extravaganzas to holiday festivities during the fall and winter months.

In general, you can potentially avoid peak crowds by visiting mid-week from Tuesday to Thursday. There are also several times throughout the year when attendance rates are traditionally lower, including:

    • Mid-January through mid-March (except during President's Day Weekend)
    • Mid-April through mid-May (except during spring break)
    • Mid-September through mid-November (except during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort)

If you prefer hanging out when the weather’s warmer and hours are longer, June through August is right for you. For a detailed list of hours, entertainment, events and refurbishments, check the Park Hours schedule within 6 weeks of your visit.

As attendance rises and falls at various times throughout the year, so does the cost of admission. Seasonal pricing provides multiple options—including the chance to select off-peak days when prices are lower and crowds are usually smaller.
