Best Time to Visit Disneyland in 2020 and 2021

by Leap on April 1, 2020 2593 Los Angeles

Best Time to Visit DisneylandIt’s one of the most popular questions we get. I even have friends of friends message me and ask ... "Just when is the best time to visit Disneyland?" My answer is always "whenever you can!" It’s the truth. Whenever you and your family can make the trip to The Happiest Place On Earth is the best time.

But, of course, just like at Walt Disney World, there are better times to visit Disneyland than others. In this post, we're outlining the best times to visit Disneyland in 2020 and 2021. We'd be toadally remiss if we didn't talk about the biggest unknown the theme parks have perhaps ever faced — and that is COVID-19. With the parks closed longer than they have ever been, we're now in new territory in terms of predicting crowds. While we do have years of experience and data collection under our belt, there are many more factors at play, including how long the parks are closed, the virus, the economy, unemployment and potential travel restrictions (international and domestic).

We know so many people just want to get back to normal, and with so many local passholders, who have a bigger influence on crowds than at Disney World,  we know crowds will return to Disneyland once it reopens. But the good news for park-goers is we think the rest of this year will overall see lighter crowds. Now, we will talk more below about passholders and how they influence crowds during "normal" times, but these are not "normal" times.

Let's first state that we don't know when the Disneyland parks will reopen. When the Disneyland parks do reopen, though, the majority of the visitors will be locals or those visiting from within a few hours' drive. If you can visit during the first few days and weeks of reopening, we think you will find much lower crowds as people resume "normal" life.

As of now, Disneyland has blocked the majority of its passholders from visiting the parks in June and July (and the first half of August). Typically, Disneyland does not change this, and if this holds true for this year, we'd expect this June,  July and August to overall have lighter crowds (assuming the parks are open).

Late August and September have always been some of the better times to visit Disneyland, and we expect they would stay that way this year. While October is thought of off-season, because of many Arizona schools' fall breaks, Gay Days, Columbus Day weekend and Halloween Time, the first two weeks have become increasingly busier in years' past, and we think that would still be the case this year. November and December would likely see a return to typical crowd levels, and overall these are still good times to visit (aside from the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve). Weekends are busier for all of these months, so if you can schedule a visit mid-week, you will generally find fewer crowds (Nov. 11, Veteran's Day, is one notable exception).

Is It Packed at Disneyland? Here's the Easiest Way to Tell

This post is going to dive into all the nitty gritty details, and the whys and hows of crowds, but let's just cut to the chase. The easiest way to know if it will be crowded at Disneyland is to ask yourself:

  • Is it a major U.S. holiday?
  • Are most kids out of school?

If the answer is yes, to one or both of these questions, there will be bigger crowds. Another thing to be aware of is major school breaks such as when many Arizona schools have breaks about the first half of October.

Want to Know for Sure?

  • Hop straight to our Disneyland Crowd Calendar. You can view the busiest times on the Disneyland Crowd Calendar for the day, month or year.
  • If you're planning a visit, but don't see your particular dates discussed below, leap down to the comments. We frogs — and some of the hardcore Disneyland community — are hoppy to share answers.

Visiting During a Busy Time? Don't Fret!

Even during the busiest times, there are ways to skip the lines and make the most of your time. Here are our best tips to reduce waits!

Factors That Influence the Best Time to Go to Disneyland

Best Time to Visit Disneyland in - Millennium Falcon

If you’re more familiar with Cinderella Castle than Sleeping Beauty Castle, it's important to know that the best time to visit Disneyland in 2020 isn't the same as at Disney World. The biggest difference are the locals. Disney World has a good amount of locals, but not nearly as many as those in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. Many of those locals are annual passholders who think of The Happiest Place on Earth as their second home. In other words, they pop in for a few hours here or there — maybe on a weekday, or on a spring or fall Sunday morning before heading to the beach — assuming their pass isn't blocked out. They hop in on Friday nights to catch fireworks and meet up with friends for some of their favorite Disneyland snacks.

Depending on the passport, a passholder might find himself or herself blocked out of the park on certain days or weeks, particularly those times that are especially popular with tourists — namely summer, spring break and holidays. The Disneyland blockout calendar provides a fairly good idea of the very busiest dates of the year, because these are the times when most passholders are not allowed to enter the parks. For example, during most of June through mid-August, the Southern California Select and Deluxe passholders are typically blocked from entering at least one or both parks, a strong sign that there will be tourists! One important thing to keep in mind: Crowds are higher right after major blockout periods such as summer when the locals can get back in.

Another factor that has more influence on crowds at Disneyland than at Disney World are the conventioneers. The Anaheim Convention Center is right across the street. What out-of-town visitor wouldn’t enjoy popping over in the afternoon and early evening for some Disney magic? It’s generally not necessary to rearrange your vacation based on a convention, but there might be one exception. Disney’s own D23 Expo, held every other year, brings flocks of fans. Those folks will plan to spend some of their hours before, during and after the Expo to play in the parks. We expect D23 Expo to return to Anaheim in 2021, although that is not yet confirmed.

Keep in mind that special events and holidays also influence crowds. Many people visit during Disneyland Halloween Time or the holidays to experience the magic of these seasons, and there are special events at different times throughout the year. This is yet another reason to review our Disneyland crowd calendar — we list the holidays and special events!

Disneyland's tiered pricing for one-day tickets also has some impact on crowds since more people make one-day visits to Disneyland than they do to Disney World. Now each day is has a different price based on expected crowd level. During the off-seasons, Tuesdays through Thursdays are generally value priced. Saturdays and holiday periods have the highest peak prices. If you add a one-day ticket to your cart, you can view Disneyland's pricing calendar, which gives you a hint of how busy the parks may be! Generally, the higher the price, the higher the expected crowds!

Disneyland 1-Day Pricing Tells You the Busiest Days at Disneyland

Based on all of this information, and historical crowd levels during holidays and other data, we have a pretty good idea of the very busiest dates of the year at Disneyland. But there are variables.

Expected Busiest Days at Disneyland in 2020

  • Jan. 1-6, 2020
  • Opening of Rise of the Resistance - Jan. 17, 2020
  • MLK Jr. Day - Jan. 18-20, 2020
  • President's Day - Feb. 14-24, 2020
  • Magic Happens Parade opening and start of Food & Wine Festival - Feb 28, 2020
  • Spring break and Easter - March 14-April 13, 2020 (elevated crowds March 7-April 20, 2020)
  • Weekends and Grad Nites dates in May
  • June 3-Aug. 11, 2020
  • The week of Thanksgiving - Nov. 20-Dec. 1, 2020
  • Christmas week through the second week of the New Year - Dec. 20, 2020-Jan. 10, 2021

Expected Busiest Days at Disneyland in 2021

  • Jan. 1-5, 2021
  • MLK Jr. Day - Jan. 16-24, 2021
  • President's Day - Feb. 13-21, 2021
  • Spring break and Easter - March 13-April 4, 2021 (elevated crowds March 6-April 11, 2021)
  • Weekends and Grad Nites in May
  • June 3-Aug. 11, 2021
  • The week of Thanksgiving - Nov. 21-28, 2021
  • Christmas week through the second week of the New Year - Dec. 18, 2021-Jan. 4, 2022

*The fall of Easter impacts Disneyland crowds in the spring. Some school districts base their spring break around Easter; others do not. When Easter falls earlier in the season, March or early April, it has the effect of making a more intense, but shorter spring break season. When Easter falls later, as it does in 2019, the effect is a longer but less intense spring break season. Many California universities consistently have spring break at the end of March, which can affect crowds then.

Other Dates That Will Likely See Higher Crowds

Here are other days that see higher crowds, but not as high as the absolute worst days. Some of the dates listed are isolated, with the days around them generally fine, but they do bring in more locals. July 17 is the exception to this, as it is already a busy time. Know of other dates that are popular with locals? Share in comments below.

  • Aug. 17-20 and 24-28, 2020 - Many annual passholders are back in after summer blackouts
  • Labor Day - Sept. 7, 2020
  • Yom Kippur (when it falls on a week day) - Sept. 28, 2020
  • Columbus Day (elevated crowds that week) - Oct. 12, 2020 (expect crowds Oct. 3-12, 2020)
  • Utah Fall Breaks about mid-Oct.*
  • Veteran's Day (and Veteran's Day Observed) -  Nov. 11, 2020
  • Memorial Day - May 27, 2019; May 25, 2020
  • Disneyland's anniversary - July 17, 2020

*The Utah Education Association Board will no longer hold its annual convention, although Utah school districts may elect to hold a fall recess about mid-Oct.

Hi Steven,

Yes, you can expect it to be pretty crowded at the park during all of Thanksgiving week. It will be a tad lighter during the first half of the week, but still expect heavy crowds.

Well, I really like your site, it is very helpful, now my question, the only time available would be during the first week of 2018, possibly even the spending new years eve in LA. given that fact, is there any recomendation to take the best of this trip around both disney parks and universal?

I will be very happy for hearing any hint you can provide... we are 2 families with a total of 4 adults and 5 childs ranging 12, 11, 9, 8, 6 yo kids.

Thank you for your inputs and keep going with this great service

Hi Carlos,

The first week of January is very busy. We recommend purchasing Front of the Line passes for Universal Studios Hollywood for minimal waits. However, if that isn't possible, then get to the park before opening, so you can be some of the first in, and head to the most popular attractions (like those in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Studio Tour). Check out our touring plans for Universal Studios Hollywood and Disneyland Resort. Plan out what attractions are a must for everyone, so you can prioritize and make a plan that works for all. Most importantly, have fun!

The only times we may able to visit are during three peak times, so I am wondering what you're opinion is on which would be "best." I have the specific dates in parenthesis.

Labor Day (8/30 - 9/4)

Thanksgiving (11/23-11/28)

Spring Break (3/15-3/20)

Thank you!!

Hi Patrick,

Thanksgiving week is definitely one of the busiest times of year, so avoid that if you can. Labor Day weekend won't be as crowded as Spring Break, but you'll still encounter more crowds than a non-peak time because of the holiday and the Disneyland Half Marathon. Take a look at our Crowd Calendar!

great site, thank you! Only chance to take my son to Disneyland this year is August 10-13. Looking at the crowd calendar you show August 13th as the best bet crowdwise...that is a Sunday. I figure Sunday would be one of the busiest. Thoughts on best day? Friday the 11th would be better for my schedule but if Sunday is really less crowded Ill make it work. Thanks!

Hi Ali,

It looks like Friday is a 7 and Sunday is a 6 (in terms of the crowd level); there probably isn't a huge difference between the crowds on the two days. Go with what works best for you so you can really enjoy the day!

Hi there,

Most of the attractions that have holiday overlays (Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, it's a small world and Space Mountain) are closed at some point during January to remove the overlay. You can check out our Disneyland refurbishments post to take a look at seasonal closures, and keep an eye on any upcoming refurbishments. Do keep in mind, though, that Disney refurbishments can change with very little to no notice at all!

We're planning a trip Jan 13-23, 2018 into both Disney's. I assumed it would be slower than the last time we were there which was the week of Dec 7, 2015. That trip was very pleasant with crowds. Now after seeing the calendar, I'm concerned I messed up! I've bought our airfare already, so that time in January is set in stone. I saw the MLK holiday and a marathon during that time. Surely the crowds can't be any worse than our last visit Dec 7-10, 2015?? January overall would be equivalent or better than December??? I hope so!

Hi. We are arriving the 31st August to Anaheim, and staying until the 10th. Do people in the US usually have the friday before labour day weekend off? I notice the 1st Sep is also a day where the disneyland half marathon is on. Should we avoid this date? Ideally we want to go the 2nd Sep , as it is my moms birhtday and she wants to celebrate in the park, which will be better you think the 1st or 2nd?

Hi! My girlfriend and I will be visiting the parks this coming weekend, which of course is memorial day weekend. I understand that Disneyland park at capacity last Saturday. Do you think that it is likely to repeat? Also, I have a question regarding ticketing. If the crowds are high, and there is a possibility of one or both parks hidden capacity, do you think that a park hopper is worthwhile, or should we get the basic ticket? I have an annual pass, but will need to purchase a park ticket for my girlfriend, and I want to make sure I get a good value for that.

Any insight you can offer will be appreciated. Thank you very much!

Hi Steve,

Many Annual Passholders are blocked during this weekend, so the closure is unlikely. However, a Disneyland closure would affect the lines at DCA. If you arrive before the gates open and don't leave, then you should be fine with a one=park ticket. Know that it will be busy!

Hi, y wife and I want to bring our 8 year old daughter to Disneyland. We are in Australia , and intend to spend a month in the US. So midweek does not bother us. we prefer cool ( Not Cold ) weather. Looking at April 2018. How many days should we stay to get the complete Disney experience for an 8 year old. Don't want to spend all day waiting in line for rides.

Hi Chantel,

Grad Nights are days were graduating seniors and their schoolmates visit the parks, with a special event held at Disney's California Adventure at 10 p.m., when the park is closed for regular guests. Since students can spend the whole day at the parks, it can increase attendance.

We have been at the park the week of 4th of July the past 2 years and crowds have been very very good. As it got closer to the 4th, crowds got lighter. Cast members said it's due to passholder blackouts and restrictions on employee family member attendance.

Hello!

I really enjoyed this article!! I am a Disney lover and am grateful to be able to visit Disneyland every year. My husband attends the Engredea Narural Foods Expo annually in March (typically the 2nd week) for work and we tag along to visit Disney. We can't arrive any earlier than Wednesday because that's when my husband flies out each year for the expo. Last year (2016) was a dream on Thursday, (husband joined) Friday and Saturday and there were no lines at all. I assumed this was because the expo goers were booking up all the hotels for that week making it difficult for tourists to visit then. I sure took that for granted because this year it was okay on Thursday But, Friday and Saturday was instanly crowded because of spring break starting that day and locals flooding to the parks. We saved Fantasyland for Saturday because my husband already saw that part last year and that was our day without him. We ended up not getting on any of those rides besides standing in line for Peter Pan for 40 minutes before we cut our losses and just went back to the hotel because the kids and I were both melting down.

Next year the expo is right smack on the middle of the worst days to visit for Spring Break. My strategy for next year is to not go to the parks on Saturday at all. And eat the money for my son and myself (my husband qualifies for a Twilight ticket since he will be in convention goer) to visit one of the Park's Wednesday afternoon/eve after we arrive. Then again on Thursday and Friday. I prefer to do single park passes and do two days in Disneyland in one day in California Adventure because it's not really worth taking advantage of the hopper when we have to take a nap every afternoon. I thought about the strategy of skipping the magic morning and just going into the opposite park each day. What do you suggest? Any advice on how to maximize our trip then? We will have a 3 year old and an 18 month old (who are usuly toast after one day at the parks). We tend to miss magic morning after the first day. We also leave the park from 1-4 ish for a nap. We are also not too concerned about Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, Matterhorn, Radiator Springs Racers etc. because the kids cannot go on them yet.

Thanks!!!!

Just chiming in to war everyone that Halloween crowds are insane, in case you are planning an October trip. The Wife and I have been visiting for Halloween the last few years, and the closer you get to Halloween itself, the crazier it gets, with Christmas-level crowding the week of Halloween. There were times it was standing room only through Adventureland all the way to Mansion, and wait times were absurd. It's still a very fun time and we have loved our spooky Disneyland vacations, but just be forewarned that the word is out about Disneyland's Halloween, and the crazy holiday crowds now being in October, not late November.

What Jeff previously replied is no joke! My boyfriend and I went last year on October 17th and 18th. It was super busy especially Monday and I was miserable and cranky most of the morning. We got there early but still had to park far away in the Toy Story parking lot and take a bus to the park. I thought it wouldn't be too bad going in mid October but I didn't realize that was also the week most local schools are out on "October break." We also attended the Halloween party Monday night and the crowds seemed to just get worse. They way oversell that event, IMO. It was so crowded we couldn't find a place to stand for the first parade and there was nowhere to stand to see the fireworks well. We got a good place for the second parade, however. And the nights they have the Halloween party the nighttime parade and the fireworks are only available to those that attend the party. So, if you don't intend on going to the Halloween party (which is a separate ticket event) then you probably won't get fireworks. The Halloween party was held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday last year. All that said, we are going to go late September to early October instead. The park is already decorated for Halloween by then so hopefully we can enjoy that with lesser crowds this year.

Grad Nights are normally private events that happen at Disney California Adventure starting at 10 PM.

There can be more people in the park, but not like a packed summer day. This is how things normally work, but we'll post an article if we hear of Grad Nights changing.
