Okay, so let’s be honest here: Any time is a good time to visit Disneyland. That said, for those who hope to avoid crowds, certain times are definitely better than others for a visit to the happiest place on earth. Fortunately, we have the lowdown on the best and worst times to visit these parks, and we’re willing to share that information with you right here and right now.
For starters, because the Disneyland parks tend to be frequented by tons of locals, you will want to avoid weekends if at all possible. This is when the locals tend to congregate at the parks, making them crowded beyond all reason.
It is also important to note that the parks are least crowded in the early morning and late at night. Therefore, going at opening (or during Extra Magic Hours/Magic Morning), taking a midday break, and returning for the nighttime fun is always a good plan.
Those two things aside, you will also want to consider the time of year you will be visiting. Here are the top 3 best times to visit Disneyland, followed by the top 3 worst times of the year to find yourself in these parks.
