    What are the Disneyland and California adventure park hours during the month of December?

    Hello, Sharene! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    A visit to the Disneyland Resort in December is sure to be magical. There is nothing quite like the Happiest Place on Earth when it is completely decked out with dazzling holiday decor! Just thinking about it puts me in the holiday spirit. Park hours and entertainment schedules are usually released about 45 days in advance. So, I would expect that hours for December will be available in late October or early November. Additionally, the official dates and details for the Holidays have yet to be announced. I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog as these types of announcements are usually released on the blog first.

    Although hours aren't available yet, that doesn't mean that you can't start planning your visit. Vacation Packages are available to book through the month of December and into January 2018. I always stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels whenever I visit because I love the close proximity to the parks and having access to Extra Magic Hour every day of my stay. So, if you stay on-site, you can count on Disneyland Park opening one hour early on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and Disney California Adventure Park (exclusively for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests) on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

    I hope this helps. Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. Happy planning!
