    We are coming for spring break 2022 Mon 4/4 thru Wed 4/8. How much will we miss by not being in the park on the weekend? Will the hours be extended for spring break?

    Hi Jessica!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm excited to be your planEAR today. Thank you for bringing this great Disneyland Resort spring break planning question to us!

    Early April is one of my favorite times to visit The Happiest Place on Earth. The weather is usually perfect - warm during the day with the need for a light jacket early in the morning and after the sun goes down. Everything is in bloom, including the picture-perfect bright pink Tabebuia trees near Sleeping Beauty Castle. And your visit is right in the middle of the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Be sure to keep up with the Disney Parks Blog as they'll release full menu information for all of the festival marketplaces soon.

    I think y'all are going to have the best spring break ever. When my family was stationed in Southern California, my son and I were annual Passholders right up until the historic park closure. I always preferred taking him during the week for a whole host of reasons, mainly because I found it to be far less crowded during the mornings, daytime and late nights. Even with a leisurely table service dinner reservation, we could still get way more done midweek than we ever could on the weekends. While the Park Hours Calendar only extends about six weeks out, what you're currently seeing is a reflection of the colder months post a huge holiday travel season. I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty confident that the weekday hours during your visit will be a lot later, keeping pretty close to what you see with the current weekend hours.

    Pro Tip: Locals tend to start arriving in the mid-afternoon and early evening as they get out of school or off from work. But they also usually leave after dinner or once any evening entertainment has concluded. I've found that some of the shortest attraction waits are those super late hours, so my suggestion is to take a mid-day nap and stay up late!

    I hope this helped to plan your upcoming Disney Days, Jessica! And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
