    Hello, We are planning to visit Disneyland this summer in late August and just noticed that D23 convention is right before we plan to visit. Will that convention make the parks busier before and after the event? Should I plan a different time to visit?

    Howdy, Kim!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so happy to hear you are planning an exciting visit to the Disneyland Resort this summer. While any time is a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort, our family has chosen to visit the Disneyland Resort several times in August.

    The D23 Expo is certainly a popular event. But I think you’ll find that its popularity affects mostly hotel availability rather than park visitor levels. August typically is the most popular month of the year to visit the Disneyland Resort. However, our experience has been that, due to school schedules, fewer visitors usually come during the later part of August.

    No matter when you choose to visit the Disneyland Resort, I’m sure you’ll find plenty to keep you busy. I’m especially looking forward to the “World’s Biggest Mouse Party” during Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration beginning this week and to finally visiting the Black Spire Outpost at the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this summer. And I can’t wait to ride the Incredicoaster again at the newly re-imagined Pixar Pier.

    I hope you have a magical time, Kim!
