    how busy does it get around Memorial weekend?

    Hi there, Ana!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I can't wait for your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I have actually vacationed at the Disneyland Resort the last three years during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, so I'd be happy to share what my experiences were like. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that the parks really did not feel as busy as I was expecting for a holiday. Each year I also found that the actual Monday of the holiday weekend was LESS popular than the Tuesday following it! This may have been due to certain Disneyland Resort Annual Passports that were blocked out during this weekend.

    This upcoming Memorial Day weekend is slightly different than in the past, because the following weekend we will get to see the grand opening of the much-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland Park. I'm not sure if this will mean more Guests plan on holding off their vacations until this land opens, or if they want to vacation before the Disneyland Resort gets more popular. You will be able to get an idea of crowd levels throughout the day by checking attraction wait times on the Disneyland app. To truly maximize your time in the parks no matter what the crowd levels are during your trip, I recommend utilizing the Disney MaxPass service. This is my number one tip to make sure you can experience the most attractions while waiting in the least amount of lines. With the time you save, you'll also be able to enjoy so much more at the Disneyland Resort! Don't forget to also utilize the Disneyland app's mobile food ordering feature to save time waiting in food lines as well.

    I hope this helps, and I hope your vacation is practically perfect in every way!
