  • Sam

    Agreed with Liz. Next week will be somewhat busier as schools get out for winter break, but it will be a lot better than later in the month. You really want to avoid Saturdays, Sundays, and the last two weeks of December. That’s when it’s nuts.

    Happy Birthday Walt Disney!!

  • Wendy

    What do you think about the crowds for Decemeber 16th, a Tuesday?

  • Liz

    It’s expected to be crowded on that day. The week before Christmas is when more of the holiday season crowds start arriving. It shouldn’t be as crazy as the the weekends or the following weeks though. Get there early!

  • lee

    How will Disney be on the 11th

  • Liz

    I’d be prepared for it to be a little busy this week, but I don’t think it will be too packed yet. The big holiday crowds usually start arriving the following week. Get there early!

  • JJ

    I’m loving the short lines this week! I’m guessing this is the calm before the storm though? Lots of kids getting out of school for winter break next week.

  • Tyler

    How will the wait times be for December 18th?

  • Liz

    I’d be prepared for maybe 30-60min waits. The holiday crowds are expected to start arriving next week, so it should be busier. Get there early!

  • Jean Valjean

    The friend and I are juggling between Monday and Tuesday again the 15th and 16th. The upside to going on Tuesday is the rainy weather might keep crowds away. The downside is the rainy weather. Is it worth braving the rain for possibly smaller crowds or should we play it safe and go on monday to get the full enjoyment?

  • SYM

    Will all the rides still be working?

  • jennifer

    I would strongly suggest not going on the 18th. That is the last day So. Cal select passholders can go before being blocked for a few weeks and it’s notoriously one worst days of the year for crowds.

  • S2

    How is the crowd on Dec 13th Saturday? Will all rides be open and any special holiday attractions?

  • Sam

    Pretty much all the rides are open on rainy days, except for Mad Tea Party.

  • Sam

    I personally love going in the rain, it doesn’t bother us at all. It was raining today and there were no crowds at all. You could walk on all the rides, no lines! Just bring a poncho/raincoat and you should be fine.

  • Sam

    Saturdays are usually crowded since it’s the holiday season right now. All the rides should be open though. Haunted Mansion and it’s a small world have holiday overlays. There’s also the Christmas Fantasy Parade and holiday fireworks going on right now.

  • Mandy

    Does anyone have experience going the last day of the Christmas Season at Disneyland which falls on Jan 6th? Do you know if it will be very busy? Thanks for the advice!!!

  • Liz

    I’d be prepared for it to be a little busy since some schools are still on winter break that week. Annual passes are also valid again that week, so lots of passholders are expected. I don’t think it will be too crazy though. Hopefully most of the crowds arrive on Sunday and Monday.

  • eekxitsem

    I went January 6th I believe 2 years ago and it wasn’t that bad. Since it falls on a Tuesday all schools should be back in session January 5th.

  • eekxitsem

    Just dress for the rain and it should be fun. I’ve been on rainy days and the wait times are less than 30 minutes usually

  • eekxitsem

    A majority of Southern CA schools don’t have their last day until Friday the 19th. If I had to choose a day between tomorrow and New Year’s Eve I would go before this Friday.

  • eekxitsem

    I’ve been on those days. It honestly depends on the weather, but if you go in knowing it will be crowded then you may have more fun knowing.

  • Mandy

    Thank You!

  • Mandy

    Thank You!!

  • Juliette

    For Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will the rain keep the crowds away or since it’s supposed to be busy the week before Christmas anyway will most people still come?

  • Liz

    It might not be completely empty, but I think the rain will help keep the big crowds away. Looks like it might rain on Tuesday and Wednesday right now.

  • mmmm

    Will it be packed jan 6

  • Liz

    I don’t think it will be too packed. Most of the big holiday season crowds should be gone by then.

  • cece

    How is the crowd on jan 1st?

  • Sam

    I’ve been on New Year’s Day before and it’s usually pretty manageable during the day. It does get busier in the evening though.

  • john

    How will Thursday December 18th be?

  • Liz

    It’s expected to be crowded. The holiday season crowds are out this week. Get there early!

  • Jack

    On December 31, will it be packed in the morning, or only later in the day?

  • BC

    Are we simply delusional thinking New Years Eve will be “OK”?? We certainly don’t mind large crowds at DL but I’ve been reading some absolute horror stories lately about the crowds on NYE.

  • Liz

    I think it will be busy but manageable in the morning, but the crowds should pick up in the evening for the fireworks.

  • Liz

    I’d be prepared for it to be crowded all day, but I think it will be more manageable in the morning. It usually gets crazy in the evening.

  • SB

    I am thinking to go to Disneyland for 2 days during Christmas. From crowd perspective, is it better to be there Dec 24 and 25, or Dec 25 and 26?

  • Liz

    I think December 24 and 25 will be a little better. It’ll still be very busy, but hopefully some people are doing other things on Christmas Eve/Day.

  • Sam

    Disneyland on New Year’s Eve is doable, we’ve done it before. Just get there early and plan on it to get very packed at night. California Adventure is always more manageable, so we like to spend some time there if Disneyland gets too crazy.

  • Sam

    There seems to be a little break from the holiday craziness on Christmas Day, but Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas are just about always way too crowded.

  • auroa

    Will it be crowded jan 6?

  • Liz

    I don’t think it will be too packed though since most of the big holiday crowds should be gone by then.

  • nicole

    We will be there dec 25th-27th is it going to be horrible?

  • Liz

    It’s usually very crowded after Christmas. Christmas Day might be a little more manageable. Definitely get there early!
