    Labor Day Weekend

    Anyone have any experience visiting DL on Labor Day weekends? Which day (Saturday, Sunday, or Monday) would you choose? TIA

    Re: Labor Day Weekend

    What are you trying to accomplish with your question?

    Less crowds? Certain show? Are you an AP'er subject to Blockouts? Time restraints?

    SOP will be Monday will start out busy and then quiet down as the day goes by. By mid evening, most rides will be walk-on.

    Enjoy!

    I've been on a few Labor Day Weekends and sometime it was really busy and other times it wasn't. Anyways, have fun and don't worry about crowds

    Thanks OldSchoolMickey -- this is what I was hoping to hear (that Monday will be OK crowd-wise). I was thinking of going a couple weekends later, but hate to miss Space and Mansion then. Thanks again!

    AVOID Sunday, as Disney hosts a Half-Marathon that morning, which creats lots of people, especially in the Downtown Disney area. In fact both Disneyland and DCA will open late.

    On Saturday, Disneyland hosts a family fun fun that has Disneyland opening later than normal.

    So the best bet, Monday.... That would be my choice!

    Thanks Darkbeer. Now I'm also pondering visiting a couple weekends from that holiday weekend. How do you all think a Friday/Sat/Sun (say 18th, 19th, or 20th) would compare to the Labor Day Monday? Thanks!

    I think the wekend in September (18th through 20th) would be nice, decent hours, lighter crowds than most of the year. A few things will be closed, including Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain, but overall should be a good weekend.

    I gotta disagree with DB on this one, the crowds that the Half brings out are awesome, and you get some one of a kind photos in the morning. A lot of characters that are rarely seen, some only found in parades will be out and about!

    Plus, you get to cheer us on!

    All but Premium APs are blocked out on Sat and Sun. You may want to factor that into your plans.
