    September is the best time to go (after the summer season), it’s hardly ever crowded on weekdays. If you must go in the summer, go after the Grad Nite events end in the middle of June.

    Fully Packed monday and tuesday on a non-holiday week. Rest of the days are also similar.

    Went to both parks just a few days ago. I was surprised how many younger kids were there when school hasn’t even let out! It was also so busy that the wait time for Space Mountain was 2 hours. My mom didn’t want to go on it because of that. Matterhorn was like 60 minutes or more.
    The wait for Star Tours was an acceptable 40 minutes or so…

    I felt sort of cheated that some major attractions were closed… such as: Indiana Jones Adventure in DL, and Tower of Terror in DCA (because it will become a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ theme attraction and the end of May.)

    If more than two major attractions are closed, guests should receive a 10% discount on admission. Seriously. It seems that guests are penalized for visiting in the off-season.

    Do not go to Disneyland on a Grad Nite day. It is very crowded! Not worth it.

    Says it’s alright but it’s horribly packed. If you use the fast pass system you get on a lot of rides, but getting to and from those rides is a nightmare. If crowds make you uncomfortable stay away Friday.

    Arrived before rope drop this morning and it was already insane – lines for Disneyland stretched to DCA. Bailed and went back to the hotel.
