Are you planning a trip to Disneyland and Universal Hollywood and worried about crowds and ticket prices?
Our Disneyland crowd predictor is the perfect tool to help you avoid peak times and make your vacation unforgettable. Not only do we use hundreds upon hundreds of days of historical data, but we track special events at the parks too!
Updated August 2021: Disney reopened both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure theme parks in late April. Our Disneyland Crowd Calendar does use historical wait times and we will do our best to adjust and modify our data as we start to see new trends.
Our Disneyland Crowd Calendar includes the following theme parks:
We have found that the most accurate Disneyland crowd calendar depends on a few factors including crowds, weather, park hours, and park ticket prices.
Los Angeles is known for it’s sunny and very predictable weather. It is still an important part to consider when booking your next trip. Summer months tend to be in the high 80s while winter months tend to be cooler in the 40s.
Our Disneyland park crowd calendar tracks the average temperature range for each day of the calendar year. This will allow you to know exactly what to expect and pack accordingly!
It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting Disney’s California Adventure or Universal Hollywood, we have found park hours can be confusing. Especially with the recent additions of so many special event tickets which allow guests into the park earlier or later than other guests.
Our Disneyland crowd calendar includes the daily openings and closings for all Los Angeles theme parks.
The Park Prodigy also gives you the choice to break down each park individually. Here’s how it works…
Disneyland is one of the most visited destinations in the world, which makes it important to choose your dates carefully. Disneyland busy times and ticket prices fluctuate throughout the year making a Disneyland crowd tracker a useful tool. Our updated crowd calendar predicts Disneyland crowds one year in advance. This allows you to narrow down the months, weeks, and days of your next magical vacation.
Our Disneyland crowd calendar gives you the option to look at each park individually. This allows you to organize our crowd calendars by:
We also include extra magic hours, and special events when predicting Disneyland park attendance by day.
One of the benefits of staying at Disneyland hotels is extra magic hours. This perk allows hotel guests to experience extended park hours in the morning. Here’s how it works:
With Extra Magic Hour, registered Disneyland Resort hotel guests enjoy admission to select attractions, stores, entertainment, and dining locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for one full hour before the park opens to the general public. The extra magic hours at each park do change based on the day of the week so be sure to ask a cast member upon check in if you are unsure of the EMH for that week.
A few of our favorite Disneyland additions over the past few years have been special events. These events range from concerts, holiday parties, and festivals throughout the year.
Although these events are typically held during off-peak times, we can see crowd levels spike during the fall. For these reasons, we make sure to include all special events on our crowd calendar for Disneyland.
Our Disneyland park attendance calendar is best used to simply avoid the busy days at the park, and visit during the slow days instead. We update our Disneyland California Crowd Calendar using the latest park events, national holidays, universities & k-12 school year plus our own personal wait time data and vacation planning experience.
So now that we have covered the basics, let’s go over what makes our crowd calendar so special. Unlike many other Disneyland crowd calendars we allow you to customize your perfect family vacation. Simply pick which is most important to you:
Then click our “save time” or “save money” button and let the crowd calendar do the rest. We will automatically pick the best days for your family to travel for that given month, and exclude the Disneyland busy days.
Below are a few of the most common questions we receive regarding our Disney Crowd Calendar…
To check on how busy Disneyland is during this week simply check out our Disneyland crowd calendar
We have found Disneyland to be least crowded during the month of September and from January 7th to February 1st. You can also find weeks spread out throughout the year with lower than normal Disney crowd levels.
By tracking ride wait time data over the years we have been able to pick up patterns. Disneyland tends to be the most crowded during major holiday weekends and breaks. We recommend avoiding Presidents Day weekend, spring break, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas week. For additional information be sure to check out the best time to visit Disneyland!
Guests planning their trip to Disneyland in January 2022 can anticipate heavy crowds around New Years. However we do expect crowds to fall off after the first full weekend of January. Guests can often find some of the cheapest times to visit Disneyland towards the end of January and in early February.
Universal Hollywood is a top destination for thrill seekers as well as die hard Harry Potter fans. Just like our Disneyland crowd calendar, you can use our Universal Hollywood crowd calendar to track theme park attendance. Universal Hollywood park tickets do not fluctuate as much as Disney tickets which is a big plus. Our updated Universal crowd calendar predicts theme park attendance one year in advance and is updated frequently.
Our Universal Hollywood Crowd Calendar 2021 is best used to simply avoid the busy days at the park, and visit during the slow days instead. We update our Universal California Crowd Calendar using the latest park events, national holidays, universities & k-12 school year plus our own personal wait time data and vacation planning experience.
