unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

Update for week of Monday, September 22, 2014.

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

Disney California Adventure: 10am-8pm (Monday-Wednesday), 8am-6pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday). 

**Note: Disneyland Park will close at 7pm on Friday, September 26 due to Mickey's Halloween Party. 

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. 

"Legends of Frontierland" will come to an end on Saturday, September 27.  There are some special events and surprises planned for the day, so if you're in the area, feel free to stop by Frontierland between 11am-6pm as Rainbow Ridge and Frontierland settle their land fued.

 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
Update for week of Monday, September 15, 2014

Park Hours: Disneyland: 10am-8pm (Monday-Wednesday), 9am-5pm (Thursday*), 9am-12am (Friday and Saturday), 8am-12am (Sunday). 

Disney California Adventure: 10am-8pm (Monday-Wednesday), 9am-8pm (Thursday), 9am-10pm (Friday and Saturday), 8am-10pm (Sunday). 

*Disneyland Park will close at 5pm on Thursday due to a Cast Member Service event that evening. Also that day, Mickey's Soundsational Parade has been cancelled due to the event. 

Fantasmic: 9pm and 10:30pm (Friday-Sunday), Remember Dreams Come True fireworks 9:25pm (Friday-Sunday), World of Color: 8:15pm (Monday-Thursday), 9:45pm (Friday/Sunday), 9pm (Saturday). 

Attraction closures: Indiana Jones (9/16-9/19), Mark Twain Riverboat (now through 11/29), Finding Nemo (now through 9/27), Golden Zephyr (9/17-9/19). 

Halloween Time has now started at the parks, including with the seasonal attraction overlays such as Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy.  Also, make sure to check out the many food and beverage locations that offer special offerings just for the Halloween season. 

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
Update for Monday, September 8, 2014:

Park Hours: Disneyland: 10am-8pm (Mon-Thurs), 9am-12am (Fri), 9am-11pm (Sat), 8am-12am (Sun). DCA: 10am-8pm (Mon-Thurs), 9am-10pm (Fri), 9am-9pm (Sat), 8am-10pm (Sun). World of Color: 8:15pm (Mon-Thurs), 9:45pm (Fri), 9pm (Sat-Sun). 

Halloween Time returns this Friday! Little by little this week, we'll see Disneyland Park transform to the fall season with all of the decor and the return of Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy (both opening on Friday). Also, the Pirates League and the Halloween Carnival both return to Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree, so make sure to check out the villains hang out, the pumpkin art and seasonal food offerings. 

If you're a pin trader/collector, Thursday is a big pin release date with several limited edition villain pins being released, a new Haunted Mansion Annual Passholder Exclusive pin, and a new Halloween Time pin for Disney Vacation Club members. 

As announced last week, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit will now host meet and greets on Buena Vista Street in DCA, starting on Sunday, September 14. 

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  351.2 #579 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6540 11:53PM
I agree with BaseballMickey_CM.  Saturdays are the lightest days when all other passes are blocked out.  The 4th may be crowded because of the holiday, but I'll take that over a crazy Sunday any day. - potatohead25  541.8 #317 2:55PM
My solo visit last Saurday was the lightest crowd I remember in a long time, especially during the Summer! - grumpypapa  2192.9 #50 4:52PM
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  798.8 #194 10:23PM
Just curious... Is there somewhere we can access past weeks for unForecast?? I love this info, and am interested in archived dates, if there are any? Thank you! - ames013  65.9 #3920 7:57PM
It just started about a little over a month ago, so there's not much for past weeks.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6027.5 #13 12:15PM
Okay! Will past weeks be available though? Thanks! - ames013  65.9 #3920 6:09PM
thank you for the unforcast, keep them going please. - snowgrey  4.5 #17407 4:55PM

Me too - that is a great price. - DeadliestPassholder  191.8 #1958 10:46AM
Ya me too! I'm only 15-20 minutes away so staying there always seems like $ I could spend on something else at the parks-but for $200 seems like a great excuse to splurge. - missariel33  1468.4 #86 10:52AM
Now we HAVE to all go shopping! šŸ‘—šŸ‘›šŸ‘” - missariel33  1468.4 #86 12:00PM
