Disneyland Crowd Calendar 2024 

Disneyland is running in full force in 2024 and this article is updated on a regular basis to include all the magic. Below is what typically happens in this month of the year. This can help you get a better, well-rounded understanding of the resort.

When is the best time to go to Disneyland?

For lower crowd levels, choose a weekday during the school year. Typically, these days offer lower level crowds but also have less Magic Key Holder restrictions which could increase attendance.

But, if you’d like to experience Disneyland with as many rides and entertainment options running as possible, visit during the summer. Summer brings extended park hours so you can experience more magic throughout the day and night.

When is it busy at Disneyland? 

I created this guide to help you anticipate events and offerings at Disneyland Resort. What’s “busy” to one person may not be “busy” to another.

The same goes for people who are new to Disneyland and those who visit on a monthly or weekly basis. Study our many line hacks to help you map out your best day ever and print your Park Plan now.Disneyland Plan Graphics

Can I get one day discount Disneyland tickets? 

One day tickets will cost you the most money per day. One day ticket prices fluctuate with demand and season. If you’re looking for a discount one day ticket to Disneyland, you will need to visit during weekdays typically during the school calendar year.

Save Even More with Multi-Day Tickets! The more days you visit Disneyland Resort, the less you pay per day. Multi-day tickets have no blackout dates, so you can travel anytime in 2024 and 2025 (with valid theme park reservations). If you’re doing Disneyland on a budget, do not buy your tickets from Disney. You will be paying top dollar with no discounts!

Instead, buy your discount Disneyland tickets from Get Away Today (the first company to ever work direct with Disneyland to sell authorized tickets!).

Here is how it works:

  3. Make payments prior to your vacation and it is all good toward your dream Disneyland trip!
  4. Pay off your vacation two weeks prior to travel.

    I would love to go to Disneyland however I live in the state of Washington. I am really hoping that by the middle of October of the shear we out of staters have an idea when we will be welcomed back to the happiest place on Earth

  • Jessica

    Hi Jessica,
    I am planning for a family trip November 17-18. Plans are to attend Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Sunday and Monday Magic Kingdom. This will be my daughters 2nd birthday (11/16) and first visit. She LOVES Minnie and Daisy. Any tips and/or tricks for visiting with a toddler? My biggest want is to ensure she can interact with her favorite characters. Also trying to figure out if a dining plan is worth the cost at this age.

    • Hey Jessica, I don’t cover Walt Disney World only Disneyland. Since it sounds like you’re prepping for a visit to Florida, I suggest you check out WDW Prep School for all things Walt Disney World. Have a wonderful time on your vacation.

  • Amy Josephson

    Any idea if Mickey and Minnie will still be appearing in their birthday celebration outfits Sunday-Tuesday, June 9th-12th. See that several of the Get Your Ears on Events are ending the 6th and we arrive a few days after. My mom made a custom matching dress for my daughter so hoping we can still catch them in their birthday attire.

    • They have both already returned to their regular outfits as of June 1st I saw them in Town Square. I still think the custom outfit will be so amazing to wear and take pictures with the characters. They always get a big kick out of things like that.

  • SILVIA GARCILAZO

    Hi Jessica we when on 2014.
    Since there we had 2 granddaughters 6 months and 2 1/2 years old.
    that why we planned a trip for this year, we have 4 days, April 29 to May 02 2019
    We try to understand the Maxpass system and the switch ride.
    Our group is 5 adults and 2 babies .
    Now a have another worry, the Disneyland After Dark. Because we might leave the park early?
    Thank you, because we learn a lot from you.

    • Right now we still expect the castle to be under refurbishment in May. I’ll be updating this article with any news for May especially as we get closer to the end of March, be sure to check back then.

  • Leslie

    If sleeping Beauty’s castle will be closed for walkthroughs, does this mean no Princesses?!?! ? Our first trip to Disneyland is Jan 22-24, my 3 & 4 year girls will be crushed!
