This Month at Disneyland Resort: September 2012

by on September 1, 2012

All photos copyright Disney.

The summer tourists have gone home, and the local kids are back in school, making September a spectacular time to visit the Disneyland Resort if you desire short lines. Mid-week visitors can expect the smallest crowds seen since before the June relaunch of Disney California Adventure. Beware, however, that seasonal installations and long-delayed refurbishments will result in several favorite Disneyland attractions being declared off-limits over the next month. Be sure to check the refurbishment list when planning a visit to the parks, so that you aren’t unpleasantly surprised upon arrival.

Crowd Calendar

Quietest Day: Most Mondays through Thursdays this month sport wait times in the bottom third of the year. The day after Labor Day is traditionally dead quiet, with Tuesday 8/30 predicted at only 1.1 out of 10 at Disneyland, and 1.8 at DCA.

Busiest Day: Saturdays and Sundays will be moderately busy once the Halloween decor is in full effect. Saturday 9/22 should hit a predicted peak of 6.3 out of 10 in Disneyland, and 6.6 at DCA.

This Month at Disneyland Resort: August 2012

by on August 1, 2012

As we enter the final month of Cars Land's blockbuster first summer season, Disneyland Resort has survived some of the largest crowds in its history. Fear not; there's still plenty of activity predicted before the peak season crowds taper off towards the end of this month. And if you can hold out for a few more weeks, near-optimal touring conditions are on the horizon.

Crowd Calendar

Quietest Day: By the last week of the month, crowds should slow considerably, with Thursday 8/30 predicted at only 2.2 out of 10 at Disneyland, and 4.7 at DCA.

Busiest Day: Sunday 8/19 is the last day of Summer Break season, so crowds should top out 10 out of 10 in Disneyland, and 9.7 at DCA.

This Month at Disneyland Resort: July 2012

by on July 1, 2012

4th of July Fireworks over Sleeping Beauty Castle

As the excitement over June’s grand openings fades into memory, we are entering the first full month of regular operation at the new and improved Disneyland Resort, which is expected to continue to set new attendance records all summer long. The celebrities have gone home, but the crowds are still strong, so strap in for our monthly Anaheim update.

Crowd Calendar

The Touring Plans crowd calendar pegs every single day in June as a “10 out of 10″ on our historical scale, so if you are visiting we advise arriving extra-early with your ticket and touring plan in hand.

Quietest Day: There will be no “quiet” days until after the summer, with peak crowds daily at DCA, but Disneyland Park will be “only” a 7.3 on July 7. Look for Saturdays to be slightly slower due to Annual Pass blackouts.

Busiest Day: Every day this month will be mobbed, but July 27 should be the busiest with a 10 in DCA and a 9.6 at Disneyland.
