    Too many pass holders just hanging out. The woman that checked us out at Target in Anaheim says she goes every day! So crowded and so many people with the attitude that Disneyland is their park so they can talk through the rides, take selfies, and literally tell you to hurry up if you are not walking fast enough in line. It’s the Southern CA passholder’s park and we are in their way.

    Go on a hot day to avoid crowds! The place is empty when the temperature is around 100 degrees.

    Since the opening of Cars Land and the new Star Wars additions to Tomorrowland, Disneyland is crowded every single day of the year. Even on school days. 75% of the visitors are annual pass holders that decide to come in for a few hours then leave. If you are looking for a good time to to Disneyland aim for the two weeks after Labor Day weekend in September or the last two week of January. Be warned thought that those are considered off season times so not all entertainment nor rides can be available.
