    NOTES

    I keep this page updated as often as possible. To find out details on your specific trip, visit the Disneyland website directly and change the dates on the calendar to match your timing.

    For attractions, visit this link. For entertainment, visit this link.

    When looking at your dates on the Disneyland website, keep in mind the (typically used) following terminology:

    • “Empty Schedule” means that Disney hasn’t added times yet. Don’t panic.
    • “Schedule unavailable” means that this attraction, show or dining location is likely under refurbishment.
