    Where do i see how busy the days typically are?

    Hello there, Becky! Welcome to planDisney. We are so glad you've stopped by to ask us a planning question.

    It looks like you are hoping to make a visit to Disneyland Resort soon. I think a visit during the holidays is just a little bit more magical. Disneyland doesn't have a crowd calendar that shows you how busy days are. However, you may be able to take a look at the one-day tickets and see that days are tiered which may help you try to plan a day that could bring lighter crowds. Although, as someone who visits the parks quite frequently I haven't noticed a huge change in crowds. Obviously, holiday weekends and times when schools are out usually tend to bring in more crowds. Days that may call for rain may bring lighter crowds and can really be a fun day to make the most of it. 

    The best days to visit are always ones that work for you and I have some tips that can help you make the most of any day. I always suggest getting to the park before the park opens to be there for rope drop. I find the first hour or two of the park opening you can really knock out a lot of attractions with minimal wait times. If attractions are a priority, Disney Genie+ is a great add-on to utilize Lightning Lanes at participating attractions. Our family is big on attractions so while we are in line for an attraction, we utilize mobile ordering so it's one less line we have to be in. My last piece of advice is to not over-plan to manage your expectations. I always ask my family to each share the show/food/attraction that they are looking forward to the most and we try to prioritize those and then see where the rest of the day takes us.

    Becky, thanks again for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and ask us any other planning questions you have!
