    I'm in CA, my wife will be joining me, for Christmas. I've been away since June and thought of going to Disneyland on Christmas Day as we have no other family here with which to celebrate. Is Christmas day a very crowded day to visit?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brian!

    It is so lovely that you and your wife will be celebrating Christmas together at the Disneyland Resort! There really is no more magical place to experience this special holiday and the memories you make will last a lifetime. Christmas Day is an extremely popular day to visit the parks. So have no worries that you won’t be surrounded by family this year because you’ll have lots of other Disney-loving Guests to share in the joy of the day. 

    You will most certainly want to arrive at the parks as early as possible. Prioritize one or two attractions that you must do and go straight to one of those first. You will also want to make efficient use of the Disney FASTPASS Service to skip most of the queue on select attractions. This is included with your theme park admission and requires that you visit FASTPASS distribution kiosks. For an additional fee per ticket per day, you can add Disney MaxPass which allows you to make FASTPASS selections through the Disneyland app from anywhere in the parks. It will save you oodles of time! Another helpful time-saver to employ on your visit is Mobile Order. Many quick service dining locations offer this service so you can order ahead on the app, skip the line, and pick up your freshly prepared meal. 

    There’s lots of Holiday entertainment to be had on this special day, so be sure to check out the calendar to see what times you can enjoy A Christmas Fantasy Parade, lightings of Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle and “it’s a small world” Holiday, and the fireworks at the end of the night.

    I hope this helps prepare you to have an amazing Christmas day at the Happiest Place on Earth!
