FYI: Starting today, Sunday August 10, park hours have changed: Disneyland 9am-11pm and Disney California Adventure 9am-10pm! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 10, 2014 11:44AM
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month. - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
Unforecast for Tuesday July 29th, there appears to be a bit of Christmas in July coming to LaBrea about 8 pm with lots of snow ( I wish) to cool us down. But lots of cool drinks and desserts if UTDisneyfamily cannot bring the cold air with them! Hope to see you all there!!! - secretagentangel Jul 28, 2014 5:49PM

So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
