    What is considered to be the HIGH season for vacationers? we are planning quiet a trip for May....is there a time to avoid?

    Hi Bonnie,

    Considering how much people love visiting the Happiest Place on Earth, it's hard to say which days will allow for a more "quiet" experience!
    Generally speaking, peak seasons include spring break during the month of April, the summer months of June, July and early August and holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
    I will say, however, that May promises to bring warmer weather to Southern California, which tends to attract guests for picture perfect blue sky backdrops and beautiful blooms at the Disneyland Resort.
    My recommendation is to simply plan ahead.
    Start by purchasing your theme park tickets online so you don't have to wait in line at the main entrance ticket booths.
    You can make dining reservations at your favorite resort restaurant up to 60 days in advance, get your FASTPASS tickets first thing upon arriving at the parks, download the Disneyland Mobile App for easy access to attraction wait times, park maps and character meet & greets.
    I hope this helps!
    Thanks for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
