    I am planning a vacation for May 2019. What date does the park open for all activities? Staying open late, fireworks the electrical Parade?

    Hi there, Cindi! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question!

    I am thrilled that you are planning ahead for your Disneyland Resort adventure next spring. I find researching and planning to be almost as fun as my actual vacation! The Disneyland Resort is open 365 days a year and May kicks off the summer season at the parks. This means that the parks are usually open longer and most, if not all, attractions should be available. While the official calendar for May 2019 won’t be available for some time, typical hours for this time of year are usually opening around 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. and closing anywhere from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. 

    Parades and nighttime entertainment should begin to have show times every day/night and there may even be exclusive celebrations during that time of year similar to how Pixar Fest took place this summer. One thing that you will want to keep in mind is that Grad Nites take place on select nights in May. Grad Nites are special events just for local graduating high school seniors and Disney California Adventure Park will close early to other Guests. 

    If you have any other questions as you plan your vacation, please don’t hesitate to stop by again. We simply love helping Guests plan magical trips to the Happiest Place on Earth!
