    Hi! Our Disneyland park tickets are bought, hotel reserved for October 1-5 for our family of five. Are we nuts to go with Star Wars having opened in June or should the crowds be fairly similar to previous years? Thank you! Nicole

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole.

    It's hard to predict exactly what effect the summer 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will have on visitor levels in October. But, to me, any time is a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort.

    I have noticed that some major events do seem to invite a surge of guests to the Disneyland Resort. The major expansion and renovation of Disney California Adventure Park that culminated with the opening of Buena Vista Street and Cars Land in 2012 attracted many guests. Disneyland's Diamond Anniversary celebration that began in 2015 also brought in large numbers of guests. Yes, some walkways were full. And wait times for popular, new attractions were relatively high. But for my family, it was also very fun to be there during all of that excitement and energy. I feel like it actually enhanced our vacation experience to be a part of a big event. And now, with Disney MaxPass available, we can maximize our visits even more.

    Of course, visiting in October, you will also be able to able to enjoy Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. I recommend spending an evening at Mickey's Halloween Party. It's so much fun to dress up and enjoy the decorations and activities exclusive to this event.
    Have a magical time, Nicole!
