This Thursday, the Resort will celebrate Thanksgiving by offering many turkey-themed meals around the parks and resort hotel restaurants. For more info, contact Disney Dining. 

unForecast Prediction: With more and more schools having this week off, expect it to be busy Monday-Wednesday during the week. For Thanksgiving Day, if history repeats itself again, expect it to not be quite busy during the morning, and then get quieter as the night progresses as a lot of people go home to eat and celebrate. Again, that's what has happened in the past. On Friday, expect both parks to be very busy as it can be one of the most busiest days of the year, but all APs are blocked out expect Premium/Premiere. And for the weekend, expect it to be busy like earlier in the week. Overall, expect CIs to be in the low 70s to low 90s this week for both parks, they'll dip down for Thanksgiving Day, then spike back up for the weekend. 

Have a great Thankgiving MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Nov 24, 2014 1:55PM

unForecast Crowd Prediction:  Expect it to be busy this Monday and Tuesday as it is a holiday week (Veterans Day). Expect CIs to be in the 70s-80s. After Tuesday, it might be slow on Wednesday, but pick up again on Thursday through the weekend as it is the start of Christmas, expecting CIs to be in the 70s-80s again.

Update for week of Monday, November 3, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 9am-12am (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday).

DCA: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 9am-10pm (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday).

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" (opens 11/7), Jungle Cruise (opens 11/14), Mark Twain Riverboat (opens 11/29). 

Reminder that the Christmas season at the Resort starts on Thursday, November 13, but some festivities may start earlier. 

This weekend, Disneyland will film its annual "Christmas Day Parade" for ABC. If the schedule follows from the previous years, Saturday will be the parade and Sunday will be the musical performances. The schedule and performers are not usually announced until the day of the filming. 

Also this Friday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade will debut at 3pm and 5:45pm (notice the time changes), along with "Believe in Holiday Magic" fireworks at 9:25pm (Friday-Sunday).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week with CI in the 50-60s, but as the weekend comes with the nice weather and hints of Christmas starting, expect the crowds to pick up to CIs in the 70s-80s. If you're planning on coming to the park on Saturday morning, be aware that it will be crowded along the parade route and Main Street as the Christmas Day parade filming will be taking place. 

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 27, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 9pm-11pm (Saturday), 8am-11pm (Sunday).

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday/Wednesday/Friday this week. Notice the early park closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 9am-9pm (Saturday), 8am-9pm (Sunday)

Attraction Closures: "it's a small world" is closed until November 7, in order to install the Christmas overlay. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat will be down until November 29. 

This week is the last week of Halloween Time at the Resort! After Friday, the parks will be a "transition" period between Halloween Time and Christmas Time, which officially starts on November 13. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week, even though it is the last week of Halloween Time. During this last month, we've seen it normally quieter on the days where there is a MHP that night, but the crowd level pick up around 3-4pm, during the "mix-in" time. With Halloween being on a Friday this year, it will be interesting how crowded DCA will be at night. Normally during Halloween Party nights, DCA can get very crowded, with Crowd Indexes around 90+. Overall, expect the crowds to be quiet to moderately quiet (CIs in the 50-70s at DL, and 40-60 in DCA). Weekends though are hard to predict this week due to the end of Halloween Time.

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 20, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-9pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday). 

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of this week. Take note of the early closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" has closed for the Christmas overlay. Expect it to open on November 7. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat is still closed for its refurbishment, opening on November 29. On the DCA side, the Boudin Bakery Tour has closed for a refurbishment from Tuesday, October 21 and will reopen on January 16, 2015. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Over the last few weeks, we've seen that when there isn't a Halloween Party in Disneyland Park, that day is more crowded than those days with a Halloween Party. I'm going to say that Tuesday and Thursday of this week will be the most crowded weekdays (Crowd Index between 70-85). On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA as Disneyland Park hosts another MHP (we saw a crowd index of 90+ there on Friday night). The weekends should be busy again as it is the last full weekend of Halloween Time at the Resort.

Have a great week!

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Tuesday and Friday of this week. Notice that the park does close earlier than normal on these days.

DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday), 8am-8pm (Tuesday), 9am-8pm (Wednesday, Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday, Sunday).

Entertainment Notes: Fantasmic will be shown on an extra day this week, Monday at 9pm and 10:30pm.

unForcast Crowd Prediciton: Expect it to be a little busy this Monday as it is a holiday (Columbus Day) and the park is open later than normal. During the week, expect it to be quiet for most of the day, until around 3-4pm, when the Halloween Party crowds start to arrive.  Like every Friday we've seen in October so far, expect it to be very busy in DCA on Friday night while DL hosts another Halloween Party. 

Have a great week!

This weekend (Friday-Sunday), is the annual MouseWait birthday event! Please join us on Friday night as we takeover some attractions in DCA and for the main event, featuring a cake contest, a pumpkin contest and the annual raffle on Saturday afternoon in Downtown Disney. For more details, look under Admin's posts and/or click on the tag "5th Birthday Bash". 

This Sunday, 10/12, the Resort will host its annual CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) Walk in the morning. If you are planning to come to the park early that day, be aware that the park does open later than usual for a Sunday morning. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Overall, expect it to be moderately quiet again this week. With having three Mickey's Halloween Parties this week, expect the crowds to pick up around 3pm-4pm as the party crowd comes in, part of the "mix-in" time. On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA while the Halloween Party is going on in Disneyland Park. And on Sunday, the crowds may pick up after the CHOC walk. If possible, I would take advantage of Thursday night with Disneyland Park open late, until 11pm.

Have a great week and Happy Birthday MW!

 unForcast Crown Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week as both parks close at 8pm, and even earlier on other days too. Friday though, will be crowded as it is the first Mickey's Halloween Party.  Because Disneyland is closed, expect it to be very crowded in DCA as it will be open later than normal that night.

Reminder that Mickey's Halloween Party starts on Friday, September 26, in which Disneyland Park will close early for the private event. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: With it being very hot at the parks this week and with both parks closing early, expect both parks to be quiet as the resort is in "non-peak" season.  As we get into the weekend, the temperature is supposed to go back to normal, which will cause the crowds to increase by Friday and Saturday.

White Water Snacks in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa will be closed from September 8 through 20 for a refurbishment. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect both parks to be quiet Monday through Thursday as we are now in the "non-peak" season, with both parks closing at 8pm. But Friday, expect the crowds to pick up in the afternoon/evening when the weekend arrives and Halloween Time has returned, plus it also being Dapper Day on Friday too. As for Saturday and Sunday, expect to be moderately busy because of it being the first weekend of Halloween Time in Disneyland Park. 

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Sep 7, 2014 10:44PM
Update for Monday, September 1, 2014:

Park Hours: Labor Day (Monday) DL: 8am-12am, DCA: 8am-10pm; Tuesday-Thursday- Both parks 10am-8pm; Friday-Sunday, DL: 9am-11pm, DCA: 9am-9pm. "Magical" Fireworks will be shown on Monday, Friday through Sunday at 9:25pm, Fantasmic will be shown on Monday, Friday through Sundays at 9pm and 10:30pm and World of Color will be shown daily at 9:45pm (Monday, Friday-Sunday) and 8:15pm (Tuesday-Thursday). 

Attraction closures: Haunted Mansion (reopens 9/12), Jungle Cruise (Tuesday-Thursday), Big Thunder Ranch (reopens 9/12), Main Street Photo Supply (reopens 9/24)

FYI: Annual Passholder Event, "Fall Back to Fun", in Disney California Adventure Park on Tuesday night, 8pm-12am. Event is only open to AP Holders celebrating their pass anniversary between October 1 through December 5 and was invitation only. Guests of the registered AP Holders must be registered in advanced online and must have their valid AP the night of the event. Check in will be at Toll Booth 4 starting at 2pm. Registration for the event is no longer available. 

Also, "Legends of Frontierland" was extended and will stick around a little longer. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be crowded on Monday as it is Labor Day and all APs are open, but it is also a work/school night, so expect the crowds to decrease by the later afternoon/night. For the rest of the week, expect it to be low to moderate crowds as most schools have started and both parks closing earlier for this short "non-peak" season. Reminder that Halloween Time at the Resort officially starts on Friday, September 12!

Have a great week MWers!

Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:

Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).

FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
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



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  352.8 #599 5:39PM

I agree @grumpypapa, last Sat. was as uncrowded as I've seen it in a long while! Besides the AP block outs, it might also be that people were waiting to visit until they were off work/school over July 4th weekend. - debbiev  905.6 #176 10:23PM

Deluxe is only blocked this Sunday, probably because of the 4th. But So Cal are blocked for a while, so Sundays may not be as busy. But summer crowds will make up for that.  - redsoxcarlos  1249.3 #112 8:15PM

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA.

Update for Monday, December 1, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-11pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: Casey Jr Train (12/1-12/20), Storybook Land Canal Boats (12/1-12/20) and Goofy's Sky School (12/1-12/9).

Shows run around 50-55 minutes. Seating is very limited, but stand by viewing will be available around Town Square on a first-come, first serve basis. All shows are weather permitting. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be slow during the week, especially with the rain in the weather coming this week, so expect CIs in to be in the high 50s to low 70s. For the weekend, expect the crowds to pick up on Friday afternoon for the weekend crowd. 

Regarding Candlelight, expect it to be a little busier than normal on Saturday and Sunday because of the event. If you are coming into or leaving Disneyland Park between 5pm and 9:30pm, expect the Town Square area to be very busy. Note: some attractions may close throughout the day for the show. 

Throughout the weekend, expect CIs to be in the 80s to maybe 90s. 

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 1, 2014 2:27PM
Update for Monday, December 1, 2014: - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 1, 2014 2:16PM
Update for Monday, November 24th, 2014 (Thanksgiving Week):

Park Hours; DL: 8am-12am (Monday-Wednesday), 8am-11pm (Thanksgiving Day and Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday), 8am-11pm (Sunday)

DCA: 8am-11pm (Monday-Wednesday), 8am-10pm (Thanksgiving Day- Sunday). 

This Thursday, the Resort will celebrate Thanksgiving by offering many turkey-themed meals around the parks and resort hotel restaurants. For more info, contact Disney Dining. 

unForecast Prediction: With more and more schools having this week off, expect it to be busy Monday-Wednesday during the week. For Thanksgiving Day, if history repeats itself again, expect it to not be quite busy during the morning, and then get quieter as the night progresses as a lot of people go home to eat and celebrate. Again, that's what has happened in the past. On Friday, expect both parks to be very busy as it can be one of the most busiest days of the year, but all APs are blocked out expect Premium/Premiere. And for the weekend, expect it to be busy like earlier in the week. Overall, expect CIs to be in the low 70s to low 90s this week for both parks, they'll dip down for Thanksgiving Day, then spike back up for the weekend. 

Have a great Thankgiving MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Nov 24, 2014 1:55PM

KOST 103.5 Radio Station Christmas Party will be held on Thursday this week from 8pm-11pm in Disneyland Park. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week as park hours are shorter for this quick break before Thanksgiving week, but it might be crowded around closing both Tuesday and Thursday when guests for the private events start to come into the park. With Christmas Time in full gear, expect it to be busy again this weekend as the crowds start to show up for the Thanksgiving week holiday. Weekdays, expect CIs to be in the 50s-60s and weekends, expect CIs in the 70s-maybe 90s.

- BaseballMickey_CM Nov 10, 2014 11:32AM
Update for week of Monday, November 3, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 9am-12am (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday).

DCA: 10am-8pm (Monday-Thursday), 9am-10pm (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday).

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" (opens 11/7), Jungle Cruise (opens 11/14), Mark Twain Riverboat (opens 11/29). 

Reminder that the Christmas season at the Resort starts on Thursday, November 13, but some festivities may start earlier. 

This weekend, Disneyland will film its annual "Christmas Day Parade" for ABC. If the schedule follows from the previous years, Saturday will be the parade and Sunday will be the musical performances. The schedule and performers are not usually announced until the day of the filming. 

Also this Friday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade will debut at 3pm and 5:45pm (notice the time changes), along with "Believe in Holiday Magic" fireworks at 9:25pm (Friday-Sunday).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week with CI in the 50-60s, but as the weekend comes with the nice weather and hints of Christmas starting, expect the crowds to pick up to CIs in the 70s-80s. If you're planning on coming to the park on Saturday morning, be aware that it will be crowded along the parade route and Main Street as the Christmas Day parade filming will be taking place. 

Have a great week!  


- BaseballMickey_CM Nov 5, 2014 10:45AM
Update for Monday, October 27, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 9pm-11pm (Saturday), 8am-11pm (Sunday).

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday/Wednesday/Friday this week. Notice the early park closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 9am-9pm (Saturday), 8am-9pm (Sunday)

Attraction Closures: "it's a small world" is closed until November 7, in order to install the Christmas overlay. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat will be down until November 29. 

This week is the last week of Halloween Time at the Resort! After Friday, the parks will be a "transition" period between Halloween Time and Christmas Time, which officially starts on November 13. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week, even though it is the last week of Halloween Time. During this last month, we've seen it normally quieter on the days where there is a MHP that night, but the crowd level pick up around 3-4pm, during the "mix-in" time. With Halloween being on a Friday this year, it will be interesting how crowded DCA will be at night. Normally during Halloween Party nights, DCA can get very crowded, with Crowd Indexes around 90+. Overall, expect the crowds to be quiet to moderately quiet (CIs in the 50-70s at DL, and 40-60 in DCA). Weekends though are hard to predict this week due to the end of Halloween Time.

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 20, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-9pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday). 

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of this week. Take note of the early closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" has closed for the Christmas overlay. Expect it to open on November 7. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat is still closed for its refurbishment, opening on November 29. On the DCA side, the Boudin Bakery Tour has closed for a refurbishment from Tuesday, October 21 and will reopen on January 16, 2015. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Over the last few weeks, we've seen that when there isn't a Halloween Party in Disneyland Park, that day is more crowded than those days with a Halloween Party. I'm going to say that Tuesday and Thursday of this week will be the most crowded weekdays (Crowd Index between 70-85). On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA as Disneyland Park hosts another MHP (we saw a crowd index of 90+ there on Friday night). The weekends should be busy again as it is the last full weekend of Halloween Time at the Resort.

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 13, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-11pm (Monday), 8am-6pm* (Tuesday), 9am-9pm (Wednesday, Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday, Sunday).

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Tuesday and Friday of this week. Notice that the park does close earlier than normal on these days.

DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday), 8am-8pm (Tuesday), 9am-8pm (Wednesday, Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday, Sunday).

Entertainment Notes: Fantasmic will be shown on an extra day this week, Monday at 9pm and 10:30pm.

unForcast Crowd Prediciton: Expect it to be a little busy this Monday as it is a holiday (Columbus Day) and the park is open later than normal. During the week, expect it to be quiet for most of the day, until around 3-4pm, when the Halloween Party crowds start to arrive.  Like every Friday we've seen in October so far, expect it to be very busy in DCA on Friday night while DL hosts another Halloween Party. 

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 6, 2014

Park Hours: Disneyland Park: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 9am-9pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 9am-11pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday), 10am-12am (Sunday). 

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of this week. Be aware that the park does close early for day guests on those days.

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 9am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 9am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday), 10am-10pm (Sunday). 

Entertainment Notes: Due to Mickey's Halloween Party, Mickey's Soundsational Parade will perform at 3:30pm and 5pm on Tuesday and Friday. Also, Fantasmic will only be shown on Saturday/Sunday. 

This weekend (Friday-Sunday), is the annual MouseWait birthday event! Please join us on Friday night as we takeover some attractions in DCA and for the main event, featuring a cake contest, a pumpkin contest and the annual raffle on Saturday afternoon in Downtown Disney. For more details, look under Admin's posts and/or click on the tag "5th Birthday Bash". 

This Sunday, 10/12, the Resort will host its annual CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) Walk in the morning. If you are planning to come to the park early that day, be aware that the park does open later than usual for a Sunday morning. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Overall, expect it to be moderately quiet again this week. With having three Mickey's Halloween Parties this week, expect the crowds to pick up around 3pm-4pm as the party crowd comes in, part of the "mix-in" time. On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA while the Halloween Party is going on in Disneyland Park. And on Sunday, the crowds may pick up after the CHOC walk. If possible, I would take advantage of Thursday night with Disneyland Park open late, until 11pm.

Have a great week and Happy Birthday MW!

World of Color will not be shown on Thursday, September 25th. 

The first of many nights of Mickey's Halloween Party will start this Friday night. Due to the separate ticket event, Disneyland Park will close earlier than normal, but DCA will stay open until 12am. 

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage will return this Saturday, September 27 after its 9+ month refurbishment.

 unForcast Crown Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week as both parks close at 8pm, and even earlier on other days too. Friday though, will be crowded as it is the first Mickey's Halloween Party.  Because Disneyland is closed, expect it to be very crowded in DCA as it will be open later than normal that night. For the weekend, expect it to be busy Saturday and Sunday, until around Sunday afternoon when the crowds mellow out for the new week. 

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Sep 22, 2014 2:09PM

Reminder that Mickey's Halloween Party starts on Friday, September 26, in which Disneyland Park will close early for the private event. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: With it being very hot at the parks this week and with both parks closing early, expect both parks to be quiet as the resort is in "non-peak" season.  As we get into the weekend, the temperature is supposed to go back to normal, which will cause the crowds to increase by Friday and Saturday. 

Have a great week MWers! - BaseballMickey_CM Sep 15, 2014 10:18AM

White Water Snacks in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa will be closed from September 8 through 20 for a refurbishment. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect both parks to be quiet Monday through Thursday as we are now in the "non-peak" season, with both parks closing at 8pm. But Friday, expect the crowds to pick up in the afternoon/evening when the weekend arrives and Halloween Time has returned, plus it also being Dapper Day on Friday too. As for Saturday and Sunday, expect to be moderately busy because of it being the first weekend of Halloween Time in Disneyland Park. 

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Sep 7, 2014 10:44PM

Also, "Legends of Frontierland" was extended and will stick around a little longer. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be crowded on Monday as it is Labor Day and all APs are open, but it is also a work/school night, so expect the crowds to decrease by the later afternoon/night. For the rest of the week, expect it to be low to moderate crowds as most schools have started and both parks closing earlier for this short "non-peak" season.

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
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

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  352.8 #599 5:39PM
