    Hello! This past summer I visited Disneyland for the first time and now want to come back with the whole family. What are the best times of year to visit? I want to be able to enjoy everything without it being too terribly crowded. Thanks for your help

    Hi Shannan!

    The Disneyland Resort is such a magical place to take your entire family and you are smart for wanting to make the most of your visit during the less crowded times.

    Typically attendance is lower early in the year after the rush of the holiday season. Anytime from mid January to mid March will have less of a crowd and still has mild temperatures. Another great time to visit is late September through mid November (with the exception of Halloween weekend). The parks will be getting decked out for fall and/or the holidays at that time as well and makes for some wonderful family photo ops for holiday cards!

    You can see on the When to Visit page the park hours, average temperatures, and even what holidays or themes they may be celebrating throughout the entire year.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions as you plan your trip!

    See You Real Soon
