Lucky enough to be spending spring break in Anaheim? Disneyland is a top destination for warm weather revelers from around the world! The spring break and Easter festivities spread from March 12-April 10, but be forewarned: Disneyland at spring break isn’t for the faint of heart! It’s an incredible experience if you’re prepared for it, so consider this your cheat sheet.
Monday and Friday will likely be the busiest days because, although the kids might be free the whole week, parents are 1) most likely to get these extra days off and 2) going to wrongly assume that all the other families will arrive on the weekend. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are your best bet.
A Real Disney Adventure
Early mornings are less crowded than the afternoons, and if it happens to rain while you’re there, take advantage of it! Rain keeps Disneyland cool and uncrowded. Plus, you’ll be tackling those water rides anyway, so what’s a few extra sprinkles? Check out the MouseWait app to see how busy each ride is in real time before you trek over.
Finally, don’t forget about that other park in town—Knott’s Berry Farm. It’s a great alternative, or you can consider it an add-on after you’ve won the Disneyland spring break game.
