The Best Times To Visit Disneyland

When you start to plan your trip to Disneyland you will want to take into consideration the best times of year and days to visit the park.

Disneyland recommends that these are the dates that typically have the lowest rate of visitors during the year:

  • 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 visit during these less crowded months, keep in mind that the park hours will be shorter and there will be less shows and entertainment to see. Fantasmic and the Fireworks usually only take place on the weekends during these times. Also keep in mind that more rides will be closed for refurbishment during these times as well.Disneyland’s peak season is June through August. While the parks will be more crowded, there will also be longer park hours and more shows and entertainment going on. And because it’s peak season there usually won’t be many rides that are closed.Any school holiday or 3 day weekend holiday will be more crowded.


Week days are a lot less crowded than weekends. The best days being Tuesday through Thursday.Weekends are always the busiest days to visit. Sundays are generally less crowded than Saturdays (with the exception of weekends where Monday is a holiday).
