Best Times to Visit Anaheim-Disneyland

The best times to visit Anaheim and Disneyland are March through May and September through October, when the weather is comfortably warm and school's still in session. In the summertime and around major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, Disneyland tends to be more crowded. And temperatures in Anaheim will be high without the reprieve of a cooling, ocean breeze.

March-May

This is an excellent time to visit. Plan your trip for early March, late April or May to beat the spring break and summertime rush. Also, temperatures hover in the 60s and 70s, which makes walking around a much more comfortable feat. Check the Offers & Discounts page on the Disneyland website for seasonal deals on hotel stays and combo tickets.

Key Events:

June-August

The months sandwiched between Memorial Day and Labor Day are the most popular times to visit the area, primarily because the kids are out of school and the weather is beautiful: Temperatures hover in the 70s and low 80s, and there is barely any rain. (Make sure to pack sunscreen and drink plenty of water.) If you're planning a summer trip, you'll need to book well in advance. You'll also see fewer crowds if you visit during the week.

Key Events:

September-October

The crowds die down as kids go back to school and Anaheim temperatures slightly drop into the high 70s and low 80s. This lull in traffic is a great time to score deals at Disneyland. However, be prepared for shorter hours of operation; check the park's website before planning your itinerary to make sure it will be open.

Key Events:

November-February

Exciting special events and the promise of warm weather (winter temperatures linger in the 60s and low 70s) draw crowds back to the area. The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's are especially busy, so make sure to book well in advance.
