    Hi, We are planning a trip for the beginning of December. How are the crowds this time of the year? Thanks

    Greetings Heidi!

    I think you've selected a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort!
    Since my birthday happens to be at the beginning of December, I visit the Parks a lot during that time of year and I've always been happy about crowd sizes, wait times and restaurant availability!
    First of all, Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are what dreams are made of!
    Sleeping Beauty's castle is draped in twinkling lights, there's a gorgeous and gigantic Christmas tree that adorns the entrance of Main Street U.S.A. and there are countless other holiday foods and festivities to enjoy!
    Generally, the Disneyland Resort is a very popular destination during the Thanksgiving Holiday. People also love to return around the Christmas Holidays so that makes the beginning of December a perfect time to go and make Magical memories!
    With that said, I still recommend taking advantage of the Disney FastPass Service when you arrive!
    And don't forget to download the Disneyland Mobile App to get up-to-date attraction wait times, character meet & greets and make dining reservations, plus much more.

    Have fun! See ya Real Soon!
