For those experienced MWers - I was thinking of doing something different this year and planning to go to Disneyland from Dec 21-26 to basically spend Christmas at the parks. I see on a crowd forecast calendar it says "forget about it" but just was curious to get some feedback on how nuts it really is. I was adding a few extra days to the stay to allow more time to do things due to crowds. I ha  More...

x-mas is my favorite time of year and go during this week every is how i see it for the days up to and including christmas day it does get busy but its managable and if you use fast passes and mw to plan your experience then you will enjoy it.I rarely what more than 40 minutes for a ride and haven't had to in two years,again use mw times and crowds shift around the parks at certain times and during parades and word of advise is that during the xmas season the park is more busy after 4pm and its proably because of the xmas light and its a small world holiday. - pikaplaid  7881.5 #17 9:23AM
The one experience I had was that 12-26 filled to capacity. - tschoolitz  8.7 #13491 9:18AM
Last year, between 21-23 it was kinda busy. For some strange reason last year, Christmas Eve was really quiet. And then the 25-2 was really busy - BaseballMickey  9025.1 #14 11:34AM

Morning everyone - we have a upcoming trip to Disneyland planned for this weekend that we setup a long time ago. Looking at the forecast it looks like its going to be super hot outside for the days we will be there (Saturday-Monday). Just looking to get some opinions/suggestions from some veterans on here how to make the best out of the trip. Just am afraid the heat is going to make it not as a  More...

To add to the above, we bring a couple of products that help us beat the heat. The first is Frogg Togg chilly pads, it's a cloth similar to a chamois that you get wet and it keeps you cool through evaporative cooling for hours. The second is a Misty Mate, it's just a personal mister you can throw in a back pack. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #204 7:52AM
How do you use the cloth? Do you wear it somehow? Or just use to wipe down as needed to cool off? Thanks! - MeridaFan  4706.9 #39 8:21AM
Yeah, draping it around your neck works pretty well. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #204 8:22AM
Cool. Thanks! Will look for that! - MeridaFan  4706.9 #39 8:30AM
Drink plenty of water. The indoor shows and attractions have cold AC. I reccomend the Aladdin show, which is very funny. Indoor favorites that keep you inside for awhile include Its A Small World, Pirates Of The Carribean, Haunted Mansion, The Little Mermaid, and Soarin Over California. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #102 7:48AM
We also like the Golden Horseshoe where you can eat and watch a show. There's even a couch upstairs to sit on. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3490.8 #52 8:25AM
Don't forget grwat moments with Mr Lincoln. - dawna  290.0 #1103 9:05AM
Get fast passes for GRR and Splash so you can enjoy them when it's hot without the wait. - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #119 1:51PM
Misters saved us when we went one year in Sept. If you stay wet you will stay cool. Spray bottles work too. - mousechamp707  216.6 #1925 2:00PM

I think I'm going to do it... Get a premium pass for my girlfriend and me... Even though we live in NorCal it will be worth the couple plus trips we make... Now my question is I am not going to the park until end of feb but can I buy the annual pass now on the website without it taking effect until I go to the park or should I just wait a week before I go or just wait to buy at the park. For tho  More...

My husband purchased his online and we didn't end up going for about 3 weeks. Even though he already paid, the first day of his pass didn't start until the first time he visited the park. Although you may just want to wait anyway because from what I understand you have to go to the ticket booths now to handle APs since there's no processing center at the moment. - DisneyLuvinMama  380.8 #680 12:09AM
Yeah I have heard that it starts the date you buy online then heard it doesn't start until it is activated at park.. Good to hear your version. I figure I will need to do stuff once I get to the park but knowing I have it is a good feeling leading up to the trip hahaha - markdsac  224.9 #1816 12:47AM
Bought my pass online and didn't go for almost a month. Didn't start untill I actually went to the park. :) enjoy - Ms.Villian1316  4.6 #22531 1:33AM
Welcome we bought out passes last month online and aren't going until march it does not take affect until you actually go! I called and made sure it was fine and it was - MikaDreamsEverythingDisney  249.1 #1498 7:36AM
We purchased premium AP's this year and we are from Nor Cal. We are a family of 5 and we drive and priceline rooms. It works out great for us. - dadcanevari  38.0 #5785 7:46AM

Okay; I know I have my feelings about the ticket prices being raised... What do you think/feel... Is the price jump that needed for the Disney corporation?

How much did ticket prices go up??! How much are they now??! - tylerdisney  31.5 #6366 10:13PM
They go up every year - Mrsblue  693.1 #343 10:14PM
It doesn't matter how much the passes are people will still go. No one will be deterred and if they are it's lovely for me because the lines will be shorter. - Mrsblue  693.1 #343 10:33PM
I renewed our passes last night before the increases and saved just under $300. - Missymoo  760.1 #304 10:47PM

No. I am in new zealand and obsessed about trying to get back and watch the webcam!!'n - Cath  26.3 #6957 12:53AM

Bare with me; I am still new to this app and I did look for this answer... What is a RAK and how does it work?

Random act of kindness. Could either be finding someone in the park (and then they give it to u) or adding your name to a list...and then the person doing the RAK uses a random number generator to pick a winner. Coul also be totally random just doing a nice thing for someone. - ekwhite  473.0 #527 9:28AM

Hey everyone! My girl and me were thinking of going to Disneyland the week before christmas; what do you guys think about the crowds? We just went in the beginning of April and didn't think the crowds were completely bad but not great. Our other option is the thanksgiving holiday but I have read that it is nuts then. Thanks for your feedback!!

We went for new years and it was crazy and I've heard that time is also crazy. But it doesn't matter you are at Disneyland! - DisneyVillainLover  258.4 #1406 9:56AM
I would say around thanksgiving would be better, my cousins went the week before Xmas and it was sold out, dland was full to capacity! Totally up to u what u decide but the first 2 weeks of dec would be waayyy better, all the Xmas decorations up but not such bad crowds - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2752 10:00AM
we went early december wasnt bad at all - Disneybaldie  355.8 #756 11:47AM
I went about a week before Christmas last year. It was pretty crowded but not as horrible as I expected. It definitely gets worse at night, but I've mastered the art of fastpasses and worked on my patience when I'm in crowds... - Neverland31  21.3 #7797 11:59AM
