    Christmas season hours? Early December closing time?

    Hi,
    Im thinking about making the Christmas season this year. I would be coming approximately 12-1 - 12-8. Probably hitting Disneyland and DCA Friday Saturday Sunday, and Maybe the Wednesday the 7th.

    Im wondering if anyone knows the trends regarding closing times on Weds-sunday in the beginning of december? Will it be similar to now where they are closing at 8 or 10 the latest? or will there be later nights?

    Also will the fireworks for Christmas only be on weekends? And Fantasmic! etc? Im also just triple checking if they will be showing the PIXIE HOLLOW light show at night?

    Any information would be nice.
    thanks
    Cedar

    On Monday 12/12 and Tuesday 12/13 in December, DL will close at 6PM and DCA will remain open until 9 or so.

    Disneyland closes early those nights for Cast Member Holiday Parties. You're not going Monday or Tuewday, it seems, so no worries.

    Here's a question...when the park is set to close earlier, does that typically mean that they aren't planning for massive crowds? I know I've been there before during different times of the year, they close early and the crowds are insane!!

    Years ago the park closed at 6:00 Mon-Fri. So the hours are much better than they use to be and the main reason the park closes at 8:00 during the week is because of the projected attendance.

    December 3rd & 4th will be the Candlelight Procession so it'll be quite crowded on the weekend for those days.

    Fantasmic and the Fireworks should be running like normal. Check the entertainment calendar on Disney's website for exact times during your stay.

    Have a great time. Dress in layers, it can be nice during the day but chilly in the morning and at night once the sun goes down.

    Website:

    Nov 13-18 hours (should give insight to Dec)
    13th: DL 8-11; 14-17th DL 10-8; 18th (Fri) 9-12
    (this schedule started Nov 6)
    Seems the week of Thanksgiving it goes to 11 or Mid.
    Maybe next week the calendar will go that far (thanksgiving week)

    Actually, they used to close at 6 on Wed and Thurs during the off season. Monday and Tuesdays were closed completely until 1985.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    I was a AP holder in the early 90's and they closed at 6pm Mon-Fri during the off-season.
