    If I visit Disneyland the second week of November, will the parks be decorated for Christmas? Does Disneyland start getting the Holiday crowds then or would it be better to visit the first week of November? I prefer less people instead of decorations.

    Hi, Renee!

    November can be a great time to visit the Disneyland Resort because the entertainment schedule is in full swing and holiday decorations and other seasonal extras begin appearing around the resort. The holiday decor is gradually added when the parks are closed and is largely complete by mid-November (holiday season offerings at the resort officially began on Nov. 12 last year), so you would be able to enjoy all of the decorations, special treats and entertainment if you visited during that time. 

    The kickoff of the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will bring an influx of visitors, although peak winter crowds occur around Thanksgiving week and in December as Christmas approaches. However, if your goal is to visit when park attendance is as low as possible, early November will likely be a slower time at the resort. 

    I hope this helps, Renee, and that you enjoy a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Disneyland Resort! Please write back with any other questions you may have as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
