While most people work during the week and have weekends off which are spent on vacation time, that can mean spending half your day at Disneyland waiting in long lines and wading through crowds of tourists. So when is the best time to go to Disneyland then?
For those of you that have time off during the week, Disneyland is much less crowded on week days. Whether you want to get there right when the park opens or later in the morning and afternoon, on a week day the park will be less crowded and have shorter lines. This is great for kids and adults that might not have that much patience to wait in line for 2 hours for one ride.
If you do decide to go on a weekend, I suggest getting to the park right when it opens since mornings are a little less busy and you can go on your favorite rides before lines get too long.
There is also a peak season and an off season for visiting Disneyland. The summer time and winter holiday time are definitely the busiest. While most people have time off during the summer and winter, these will have the bigger crowds and longer lines for rides. If you can, try to go during the off season of mid-January to mid-May and mid-September to mid-November. Just be wary of holiday weekends like President’s Day, Spring Break in April, Memorial Day and Halloween, as these can be busy weekends too. But no matter when you go to Disneyland, be it a week day or weekend, during any time of the year, you’re sure to have fun seeing your favorite characters in the happiest place on earth.
