    Hello, I’m going to Disneyland December 19/20th that’s Tuesday and Wednesday is that a really busy time

    Hi Ashani! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    Your trip will be here before you know it. You must be excited! The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are one of the most popular times of the year to visit. It's no wonder with the festive decor, treats, and entertainment. Check out the Disney Parks Blog for all the official news on what's coming this year to make you merry.

    Because this is a popular time of the year, I can't promise you that you'll experience light attendance on the days of your trip. While weekdays can be lighter, there are always reasons why the parks will be highly attended during the week and not just on weekends. That doesn't mean you won't have a magical time! Just plan accordingly. I've got some suggestions on how to make the most of your time.

    I always recommend checking park hours and getting there as soon as you can. Crowds can be lighter in the morning and pick up as the day goes on. You also might be able to jump on some attractions and experience shorter queue times at night during nighttime entertainment. If you didn't add the Disney Genie+ Service at the time of your admission ticket purchase, you can still purchase it using the Disneyland mobile app after you've scanned into the parks. My family loves this service since we appreciate spending less time in queues. We'd rather focus on the fun and enjoy a yummy dining experience while resting our feet.

    It's not all about the attractions! There's so much else to do from entertainment to dining. Take the time to soak it all in, and don't feel pressured to ride everything, especially at this time of year when there is so much magic in just being in the parks. Grab a churro, find a comfortable spot, and enjoy the atmosphere. Or maybe there's a special limited-time holiday treat you're just dying to try! Check them all out using the Foodie Guide on Disney Eats, your official source for all things yummy at the parks.

    I hope this helps!
