Looking for the ideal time to visit Disneyland? While there are several factors to consider, the first step is to figure out which ones are most important to you.
On a budget? Travel when Disneyland Resort hotel prices are at their lowest. Note that Disneyland ticket prices remain the same all year long.
Hate crowds? Plan your trip when the parks are less congested. The very best resource for predicting Disney park attendance is the Disneyland Crowd Calendar at TouringPlans.com.
Unsurprisingly, crowds are generally higher during holiday periods, school breaks, summer vacation, and weekends.
The following table offers a general overview of typical factors that may help you decide when is the best time for your family to visit Disneyland. As you can see, January-February and September-October are good bets—if your kids are not yet in school or if you're willing to pull them out of school. And remember, prices are generally lower midweek compared to weekends.
