    Best time of year to go to Disneyland

    Yvonne, thank you for visiting planDisney!

    As someone who has been to the Disneyland Resort during every single season and time of the year, I find that any day is the best day to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. But if you have specific goals in mind for your trip, there are times of the year that may work better for your needs.

    Here are some of my thoughts on when to visit:

    - If you are interested in lower crowds, January is often the best time of the year. You will also find ticket prices to be at their lowest in January. However, be mindful that this is also the month when some attractions are temporarily closed for refurbishments.
    - For lovers of entertainment, the summer months (June through August) are best. You are more likely during these months to have a jam-packed entertainment schedule; however, crowds will likely be higher.
    - Foodies and wine connoisseurs will love March through April, as that is usually when the Disney California Food and Wine Festival is held. The festival will run from March 3 through April 25, 2023.
    - And last but certainly not least, if you are a fan of holiday celebrations, I recommend September for Halloween and November for the winter holidays such as Christmas. You get all the festivities but with somewhat lower crowds. You want to make sure to double-check the dates of these celebrations before booking, however.

    2023 is going to be a fun year at the Disneyland Resort. Disney will be celebrating 100 years of magic starting January 27, 2023, and regardless of when you visit, you will likely be able to enjoy the unique entertainment and opportunities this celebration will bring.

    Best of luck finalizing your plans, and have a wonderful time at the Disneyland Resort!

    Ta-ta for now,
