There’s lots of fun no matter when you come!

Every month offers a different way to experience what the Disneyland Resort has to offer. From late-night summer extravaganzas to the mostly quieter winter months, there are different advantages to visiting during various seasons.

In general, if you want to visit when the number of Guests is sometimes lower, plan to stay mid-week — Tuesdays to Thursday. There are several times during the year when Guests can take advantage of historically lower attendance:

  • Mid-January through mid-March (except for 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 would like to come when hours and entertainment are at their peak, June through August is our high season. For a detailed list of hours, entertainment, events and refurbishments, go to the Park Hours section within 6 weeks of your visit.
