What are the Best Days to Visit Disneyland?

The best days to visit Disneyland and California Adventure Parks are generally weekdays, during work hours (9 am- 5 pm). Since Disneyland is a local theme park, Californians frequent it regularly. Evenings, holidays, school breaks, and summers are naturally more crowded. Check out the Disneyland Calendar to get a look at all the events planned so far.
