    Is December 11-13 a good time to go?

    We are wondering if this is a good time to visit the resort, if crowds will be not too big? And also, will Fantasmic! be playing during these times?

    It might no be as crowded because it before Christmas. On the 11 you might have some trouble because all passes are working on that date. On the 12, 2 of 4 passes will be working. On the 13, 3 of the 4 passes will be working. So there might be some crowds. I would recomend going on the 29-31 because all passes but one are blacked out. Also the Christmas decorations are still up. About fantasmic running on those dates I'm not sure but I'll look it up.
    So after 2 full days in a row of walking around disneyland and a four hour practice, I finally understand why my doctor told me to take it easy on my knee I still cant wait to do it again

    We had guests from out of town the 2nd week of December last year, it was a perfect time to go, so few waits for rides and not crazy hot outside (go on a weekday if you can, the 5 minute waits for most rides is hard to beat!). During that time of year Fantasmic only runs on the weekend nights, but you can check the schedule on the Disneyland main site (I think it goes that far in advance).

    I would also recommend to avoid crowdes get to the park the minute it opens and ride attractions such as Nemo, Splash, Space, Indy, Matterhorn because those tend to have the longest lines. Are you including DCA in your trip too?

    Yeah, we're planning on getting there early so we can get in right at the opening.

    Yes, we are going to be visiting DCA as well.

    Ok in DCA i would also reccomend getting there the moment it opens so you might want to go on a different day because if you leave DL without riding the popular rides, you might not get to ride them that day unless you dont mind standing in an hour long wait. but when you go to DCA (i also reccomend taking your pics infront of the letters since they are taking them down) go straight to soaring bcause that ride has the longest line and the line tends to move slowly. After that i would reccomend riding TOT, Screamin, Grizzly River Run, and Midway Mania because those tend to have really long lines too. Also something you could do is get a fastpass for Screamin and get in line for midway mania so bye the time you get off Midway you can get on Screamin.

    Also a tip for disney, the rides you really want to get Fastpasses for are Splash, Space, and Indy

    In December Fantasmic! should still be performed probably everyday or weekends. Also possible three times a day. I think Fantasmic! goes into refurbishment in early January. Also December 11-13 wil be super busy because of the holiday and also because of Premium and Deluxe AP's.

    SoCal AP is blocked out Dec 12.
    SoCal Select is blocked out Dec 12 & 13.

    I also recommend watching Pixar Play Parade, Aladdin: The Musical and the Electrical Parade.
    Fastpass for Soarin' Over California is a must.

    At Disneyland Fastpass for Haunted Mansion Holiday is also a must. The line is usually 40+ minutes.
    At opening the best idea is to get on as many rides at Fantasyland first.

    Yes, Haunted Mansion Holiday does have fastpass. It did last year I still have leftovers from last year and a couple of years before that.

    If you have the iPhone, make sure you get the Walkee iGuide App for Disneyland, it will help you figure out real time waits for the rides, so you can plan your day out better. It's my favorite App!
