    What to Expect Jan 3rd and 4th

    Me and a group of 7 other people are going to Disneyland on January 3rd and 4th, as I have posted here before. I have a few last minute questions I'd like answered before I go.

    1) How crowded should I expect the parks?

    2) Should I buy my ticket ahead of time or at the park if we plan on being there at opening?

    3) Where are good places to meet up with a group midday?

    Shouldn't be terribly bad crowd wise (schools are back in session), Ticket depends on how early you want to line up at the gate. If you are planning at showing up right when they open and being first ones in doesn't matter to you, then getting the ticket at the park shouldn't be an issue. Good Places to meet up are easily described areas like Directly next to the Partners Statue.

    If you want to be the first ones in and don't want to risk waiting in line for tickets then i say buy them before.

    Ooh, I heard next week would be busy. I hope you're right, though!

    It's pretty hard to predict the crowds for next week this year. Most schools in the Southern California area go back on the 2nd. However, I'm not aware as to the schedule for the out of state schools, particularly Arizona, Utah, and Nevada, as those states make up a majority of the visiting tourists.

    You can bet that the park will be dead in the mornings, but may pick up in crowds around 12-1 in the afternoon, like most weekends.

    Again, this is just my prediction based off previous years and schedules, so it may be WAY off! haha

    I go back to school on the 3rd so Nevada kids start on the 3rd, most schools probably start during that week, crowds should be light hopefully

    It's a music Celebration
    Come on, come on, come on
    Strike up the band,
    Feel the beat, what a great sensation
    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    Well there are those that would say 8 out of 10 for those days. P.s. touringplans is totally worth the few bucks

    I'll be there those dates, too. I hope Quentin is right about crowds. I know that LA Unified School District - biggest school district in the country - is still on vacation until the 9th. But hopefully all those parents took the holiday time off instead of after.
