The number of visitors to Disneyland Anaheim varies greatly all over the year. The busiest periods are at holiday times: Summer, Christmas and Easter.

If you want to visit Disneyland Anaheim during a slower time, than you should plan your visit during one of the following periods:

- mid-September through mid-November
- mid-January through mid-March 
- mid-April through mid-May. 

If your criteria is avoiding crowds, you should also avoid weekend days, and prefer Tuesdays and  Thursdays.

Visiting Disneyland during non-crowded periods means obviously shorter lines for attractions. But it also means less events and attractions. In the busiest periods parks are open untill later and there are more parades, fireworks, events and attractions.


Californian weather in Disneyland Anaheim practically the same all year round. It doesn't present a clear disadvantage or inconvenience in any month or period. Yet there may be some hotter days in the Summer, that you may want to avoid.

If you want to avoid very packed periods, then do not go from Christmas through New Year's, Fourth of July Week, Spring Break (1st week of March until mid April), Memorial Day Weekend, Summer Break (2nd week of June until 2nd week of August), President's Day until the end of February.
