A trip to Disneyland is a rite of passage for many families. Choosing when to visit is the first step in the process of planning your magical vacation. There are a variety of factors to consider when selecting the best time to visit. Before making your reservations, you need to think about crowd levels, weather patterns, and special seasonal events that you want to experience. Here are three of the top considerations to make when planning your trip of a lifetime:
When is Cheapest?
Although there is no true off-season at Disneyland, Is It Packed points out that there are certain slower times of the year in which you will see bigger savings. The bulk of the savings will be in your hotel accommodations. In order to fill rooms, local hotels will offer greater discounts during the fall and spring season when there are not as many tourists. Ticket prices do not fluctuate throughout the year but Disney will often offer enticing packages at their own resorts located on the property.
When is Most Comfortable?
Being comfortable while at Disneyland is one of the keys to making the most out of your experience. The weather should play a major role in this decision. According to Park Savers, in the summer, it’s not uncommon for Los Angeles to see temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more regularly. If rain will put a damper on your vacation, keep in mind that the rainy season is in the winter months. Regardless of what time of year you visit, it is always a good idea to dress in layers. Even during the hottest months, it may be chilly in the mornings and evenings.
When Are the Best Special Events?
Disneyland is known for its many special events held throughout the year. The resort offers everything from themed Halloween parties to date night events to food and wine festivals. There is truly something for every taste and interest at Disneyland. The key to making the most out of the magic is visiting at a time where you can attend a special event or festival that appeals to you. AllEars.net reminds future park guests to check the events calendar prior to booking your trip so that you will not miss anything that you have your heart set on attending.
A trip to Disneyland is not something that you want to wing. The proper planning can make a world of difference between a truly magical time and a less than perfect experience.
