    Hi I will be at Disneyland from 26-28th May with 3 Day park hopper. how busy is the park for those 3 days?

    Hi Nerissa!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for your upcoming Memorial Day weekend vacation. I will actually be overlapping my next Disneyland Resort vacation with you at this same time as well! We have visited this exact weekend the last three years in a row, so I can tell you a little bit about our experiences.

    We have found the park to be on the popular side since it is a holiday weekend, but not so much that we still couldn't see and experience everything we wanted. I would love to give you some tips to make the most out of your magical weekend. First, make sure you arrive as early as possible each morning to experience the parks with the lightest crowds. This is when we try to get on some of our must-do attractions such as Space Mountain or Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! You will also want to start making FASTPASS selections early in the day to minimize time waiting for more attractions later on. The best way to do this is by upgrading your ticket with Disney MaxPass when you enter the park. Before your trip, you can download the Disneyland App, link your park ticket, and when you arrive you can add the MaxPass feature. This allows you to make digital FASTPASS selections right from your mobile app saving you time and footsteps. Plus this service also provides unlimited PhotoPass downloads of pictures taken throughout your day. 

    During your visit, you won't want to miss all of the exciting happenings of Pixar Fest, including the return of my very favorite parade, Paint the Night, in Disney California Adventure Park. Over in Disneyland Park, you must check out the brand new nighttime fireworks show Together Forever - A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular. My family can't wait!

    I hope this was helpful, and maybe I will see you in May!
