    Exclamation Disneyland on Saturday, October 26th! Help!

    Hi Guys!

    I'm new to this website, but so far I've really enjoyed reading all of the input! I am a huge disneyland fan I am going to Disneyland Anaheim on October 25th..this upcoming Saturday, and was wondering if you think it will be busy or not? I realize it's a Saturday, but was curious if it will be any more busier due to school..days off..etc.

    Let me know Thanks!

    I know it's a Saturday so it won't be perfect, but is there something going on in the park to make it so busy? Also, do you think getting there at 8am will help?

    I definitely think getting there before opening will help you out. I find that when I do that, I can get a lot done in those first few hours before the crowds get there.

    I was there last Saturday and it was sorta crowded in the late morning. Towards mid-afternoon it was a total zoo...mainly because of the upcoming Halloween festivities. I recommend to plan your day and get fast passes. Have a magical day!

    I agree, get there early and you can make it happen.

    I really think that attitude is everything. If you know ahead of time that it will be nutso, then you can mentally prepare, and it won't be a surprise. Just bring some patience, and you'll have a great time!

    Good luck.

    all the halloween stuff, most people arent realizing the park is currently busier than it was in the summer and to top it off this week several school in northern california have their fall breaks so even yesterday it was packed (compared to most weekdays)

    Since you don't get to go all the time make sure you are there when it opens. If you have to ride Peter Pan of Nemo, do one of those rides at the rope drop. Make sure you use the fastpass and use it OFTEN. Look on the front of the fastpass to see when you can get another one. I'd highly recommend using fastpass for HMH, Space, Indy & Splash.

    Have a great time!

    I would recommend reading "The Joy of Fastpasses"- which is a thread towards the top of this forum. It has really great advice on how to best utilize the fast pass system, which it sounds like you may need to do.

    I also find that taking the Disneyland Railroad around the park is a good way to unwind if you're tired of the crowds. If you find yourself getting stressed, get a cold beverage and maybe a snack and get on the train. You get to see the whole park and it's a great way to refocus before heading back into the mob.

    Other than that, just prepare yourself for crowds the be patient. If it's busy, you're prepared. If it's not then you'll be pleasantly surprised. Have a great time!

    2) Get over to TSI.
    3) Try a jalapeño/cheese pretzel. Yummy!

    it will be very busy, it was last Saturday when I was there. just do as everyone has already advised... get there early and make sure you get fastpasses as often as possible. You should be able to get a lot done during the first couple of hours.
    Getting a fastpass every time one was available allowed us to do the big rides multiple times while avoiding the 60 min+ lines last Saturday.

    This weekend is also the AP preview of Tink's movie so you will likely have extra people in the park who otherwise wouldn't be there.

    It will be more crowded than usual because were getting closer to Halloween.

    Plus it's a Saturday. Int my opinion the most busyiest day of the week. Sundays seem to be good.

    Get there early. That will help a lot
