    We originally wanted to go on September 25, thinking it will be a low crowd day given its a Monday, but its booked out! What would you recommend btw Sept 24, Sunday and Sept 26, Tuesday?

    Hey there Pradeep, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for your question! It's always tough to try and outguess "the crowds" at the Disneyland Resort, and every time I think I've figured it out - it seems as though everyone else has figured out the same thing! 

    Having said that, between the two dates that you mentioned, I would personally probably choose the Tuesday date. Let me quickly add the caveat here that we planDisney panelists are Guests just like you and have the exact same access to all things Disney as you. This means I don't have any secret insider knowledge or access to see crowd levels, but this is purely just my opinion given the two options.

    Typically, when my family and I visit the parks, we tend to like to go mid-week with the thinking that many other people are (hopefully!) working and/or in school. Depending on the time of year, it doesn't always work out that way, but it has stuck in our visiting habits.

    One additional thing to keep in mind is that on Tuesday, September 26, the Disney California Adventure Park is hosting Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party. Those with tickets to this sold-out special event can begin accessing Disney California Adventure Park starting at 3:00 PM and then that park closes at 6:00 PM to those without the special event tickets. 

    If you have purchased the Park Hopper option with your theme park tickets, I would recommend booking your theme park reservation for Disney California Adventure Park to start the day there, and then you can switch over to Disneyland Park later in the day when the Oogie Boogie Bash Guests begin arriving to the park. If you purchase single-park tickets, then I would recommend making your theme park reservation at Disneyland Park so you can spend the full day there.

    I hope that's helpful information as you decide which day to visit next week, Pradeep! Know that whether it's busy or not during your visit, there are still all kinds of ways to have fun during your visit. Take your time and enjoy your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Have a Magical Day,
