Please find, below, my crowd calendar.
First, a few tips on choosing a date:
- Weekdays are typically less crowded. If you have to schedule during the peak months, go during the week.
- Holidays, California Spring Break (the most frequently scheduled of the SoCal spring breaks), Summer Break, Halloween and Christmas through New Years are most crowded.
- September and February typically draw the least crowds. These are my favorite!
With all of this in mind, please know that the park is truly crowded year round now. “Off season” is really a thing of the past, as Disney implemented tiered pricing to balance out crowds. And, it’s working. Rather than banking on going during a “slow” time, I encourage you to do your research so that you can enjoy your visit, regardless of the crowds.
