    What is the least crowded time in April to visit Disneyland?

    Laura, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney Parks recently moved to a tiered ticket pricing based on anticipated crowds during peak travel times. It mainly affects Guests who wish to purchase 1-day park ticket, but the calendar is a good indicator as to how crowded the parks may be.

    For the month of April, the first week will be busy as many schools have Spring Break. The least busy days generally will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Crowds will be slightly higher during the weekends as well. 

    Please note that park hours will be longer during busier park days. Be sure to download the Disneyland mobile app to check out park hours, attraction wait times, character meet-and-greets, dining menus, as well as view your PhotoPass gallery.

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort. If you have further questions, please come back to visit me on the Panel.

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
