    Is there a way to see if there will be any groups visiting Disneyland the day we want to go? Last year we went for my birthday and there was a cheerleader competition there so it was very crowded and I would like to prevent that from happening again.

    Hi there, Alana!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m really glad you stopped by with your Disneyland Resort question, and I hope you’re getting excited for your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
    The Disneyland Resort is indeed a popular vacation destination for many, and special events in the Anaheim area plus official, Disney-sponsored events such as Disneyland After Dark, Disneyland Grad Nite and D23 Expo can impact the theme park hours and crowd levels. Please check Special Events & Tours on disneyland.com for more information about seasonal offerings that can increase theme park attendance at certain times, and keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as new items are announced.

    There are also a variety of independent groups that host events at or near the Disneyland Resort throughout the year. One way to find competitions or conventions that might result in higher theme park attendance during a given period is to check the calendar of events for the Anaheim Convention Center, which is located adjacent to the Disneyland Resort. 

    I hope this information helps you plan, Alana, and that your vacation is pixie-dusted to perfection! Please send us any other questions you may have as you continue preparing for your visit.

    Wishing you magic,
