    Talking Easter in Disneyland

    Hello... I have been to Disneyland many times but never on any actual holidays. I am going to be there on April 4th and 5th and I was wondering if anyone else had ever been on Easter and could tell me what special things go on, if any, for the holiday and what crowds are like. Thank you for any advice, memories, and help.

    It sure is. I couldn't have said it better myself. Weather is great, at least is now. But it's vacation time for many. But have fun! They should have amazzzzing cupcakes and cookies

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    We've gone on Easter Sunday twice. Each time we got to Disneyland at 10 or 11 am. (We drove down from Northern California that morning) We found the park getting busier as the day went on but never too busy. The rest of Spring Break was busier.
    I don't recall any Easter related stuff besides souvenirs and Easter decorations at the Storyteller buffet. Oh and Rabbit was out at the Pooh area both years.

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    We will be arriving late on Easter Sunday (but not going to the parks that day) and visiting the parks the 3 days following Easter. I expect it to be busy, but manageable. Agree/Disagree?

    Agree.

    My wife is a teacher and we have school aged kids. So we always go on school breaks - it's always busy when we're there! However, I prefer spring because it's not as hot and, I think, not as busy as summer overall.

    Have a great trip!

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    I go every year on Easter Sunday. the parks are normally not busy since most families spent the day at a nearby park doing their easter egg hunt.

    The resort usually does not do anything special for that Holiday, they might sell a couple treats in the bakery but nothing is done like in WDW where they have all kinds of Easter based entertainment

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    We're going that week too, and I've been a little nervous about crowds. We went last December 18-20th...and it was SO crowded. I mean, it was insane. Hoping it's not like that.

    Yeah, I'd say that's one of the worst times go (I hear New Years is the worst), crowds wise.
    But the Christmas time at the park is the most beautiful time to go.
    Even with the crowds, my personal favorite time to hit the parks.

    I've done Spring break at the park and it's usually pretty busy.

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    I am going to be arriving Sat April 3rd but not going to the park until Sun and Mon. I expect the morning to be slow and then a sudden infusion of people. I am hoping for the best but expecting the worst. Good thing is I am staying across the street so I won't have to worry about parking. I don't mind if Easter Sunday is busy but I'm really hoping that Monday will be on the slower side since its the last day before kids back to school. I know as a mom that we don't usually travel the day before school go back. No kids on this trip for us though!!

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    I have been to Disneyland on the 4th of July, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving and most recently New Year's Eve (THAT WAS CRAZY!), however - this is my first Easter at Disneyland as well. I arrive on Friday, April 2nd and depart Monday night, April 5th.

    I would expect the crowds to be worse AFTER Easter as the hotels I've checked are full and for us in northern California that's Spring Break. That's why I figured we'd be better off showing up down there BEFORE the kids get their full-week off from school.

    Re: Easter in Disneyland

    We've been to the Resort for Easter three years in a row.

    But since they cancelled the Easter Day Buffet in the Grand Ballroom of the DLH last year (as well as this year), we stopped going.

    We never really noticed the crowds since we were having too much fun, but sadly, until they bring back the Easter buffet, we'll go somewhere else...

    Have fun!
