    What's the off season?






    ...There really isn't much of one anymore. Maybe a couple days here and there, otherwise, it's near full-tilt all the time.

      I would take early sept as possible.

          There really isn't a Fall/Winter off-season anymore because of Halloween Time and the Christmas festivities, especially with this year's new castle decorations. Most of January and February should be pretty slow though.

            February to early March would be the best. No holiday weekends, though. I took my dad last February and the crowds were light enough that he didn't get irritated as he will. Give him a break - he's 85. And he's put up with me for over 50 years.

              The off season exists in the following time periods (approximately):
              Almost all of September
              Beginning of November
              Last week of November, first week December.
              Mid January through Mid March.
              Late April, Early May.

              But even that isn't guaranteed.

                Early September weekdays can be pretty comparatively uncrowded. Kids are starting school, weather is cooling off just a little.

                  I don't know what Disney actually qualifies as off-season, but we went to the parks last wednesday and it was near empty. The longest line we waited was for Nemo at 45 minutes. Everything else (even Mansion) was little wait or just a walk on.

                  Of course there was no pyro or Fantasmic! but being able to visit almost every attraction with little wait was a welcoming change!

                    Whenever! You know, like the cell phone adds. I thought I could use my minutes whenever. Yes, no, well you know, "When? Never!" When is the Off Season? When? Never!

                        It's when the park goes in its off season hours, close at 8 PM on weekdays, 10 PM on Fridays, 11 PM on weekends. They will have no pyro, no fireworks, and only one parade.

                        It's when the CTs are not working, not the weekends, holidays, and vacations.

                          End of January is really good with ZERO! Crowds. But then be ready for rides to be closed.

                            Is there such a thing anymore?

                                  As the others have said, it's a very slim period of time compared to what it used to be, back in the day when the park closed two days a week during the non-peak periods.
                                  God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                                    due to budgetary constraints, the "Off Season" at Disneyland has officially been canceled.

                                    You might get a glimpse of the "off season" when it rains, if it ever rains again.

                                      Not as much, these days.

                                      Seriously, if our family is representative of the Disneyland Guest Demographic, then attendence is headed in a downward trend. We don't go nearly as much as we used to and all three of us have Annual Passes. Part of it is the crowd. Disneyland is much much more enjoyable when not crowded, obviously, and the fact that it is crowded even when it did not used to be factors into what we are doing with our down time.

                                      When it comes time to renew the AP in April, I am going to be lobbying for something else, perhaps, as we will barely by making 10 visits per year and the breakeven is 6. Before 2005 we made nearly 20 visits per year. Typically we would go for dinner on a friday night. Take in a few attractions and watch fantasmic or the fireworks. The crowds for fireworks now are just nasty. IMHO.

                                        Disneyland vs. What ?

                                        This question leads me to ask: What other things to do for entertainment in the Los Angeles County area ?

                                        Here are some of the things that we rotate through:

                                        Getty Museum
                                        Norton Simon Museum
                                        LACMA
                                        Griffith Park Observatory
                                        Movies (now that child is old enough)
                                        Descanso Garden
                                        Huntington Library
                                        Hiking (very short day hikes)

                                        What other things do you do with your family ?
