  • December Disneyland: When does it start to get REALLY crazy?

    My husband and I are wondering if we go in early December if we will be less likely to deal with huge droves of Christmas vacationers, or if it's pretty much busy from beginning to end. Anyone have an idea? I know nobody can know for sure, but I've not gone there at this time of the year and I'm sure some of you have.

    Weekdays at the very start of December are quite nice usually.

      I would not go the last two weeks of December. My experience has been on December 27...NEVER again!!!!

        Best time to go will be the week after Thanksgiving. We were there that week last year and it was fantastic. NO LINES. All the Christmas decorations were up. It is the best DLR trip ever for us.
        You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.

          Yeah, I'm basically assuming that anywhere between December 12th and December 30th would be bad timing, because that seems like the time frame when kids are out of school and family trips will have started. But I just need to make sure before we decide on reservations.

              Hahaha, I just realized that I sound like I'm trying to avoid families and kids... moreso just the long lines that come with massive amounts of happy families.

                We went over the 8th one year (during the week) and it was wonderful. No crowds, no lines, but all the christmas fun. I don't think that the fireworks went every night, and there weren't a zillion characters out, but still plenty to have fun.

                      December 16th on is considered "peak season."

                        Early December usually isn't that bad. It only really starts to get nuts the last week of the year, Disneyland has been known to reach capacity between the 25th and Jan 1st.

                          Anyone know what "capacity" is? I could swear DL reached it Friday night! What a zoo, and people were still streaming in when we left around 8:30!

                            How does one find out whats going on during the year? we are planning a trip the first week of December also, ( Next year) it would be awsome to know what to expect as far as crowds, and conventions and things such as cheerleading and so forth .

                              I know it, but I am not sure if I am allowed to share this type of information. What I know is, onec the park reaches capacity, they add a third Fantasmic! show!
