    The format for Grad Nites is new this year so not a lot of sure things are known.

    They will have park hoppers, so expect to see more and more arriving during the day.

    They get a private party starting at 11pm, so expect Disneyland Park to close 9 or 10pm, but California Adventure to stay open to 10 or 11. Regular guest can leave but the Grads will have to do something.

    Also they no longer get Fireworks instead they get a private showing on Fantasmic. so maybe there will be fireworks before thier party starts for everyone. Maybe no Fantasmic for regular guests. More demand for World of Color.

    If you are driving to the parks. They park the buses at the Toy Story Lot so it may be closed to the public.

    Keep and eye on the reporting about the event in early May to see what you are in for.

    Re: When Will It Be Busy At Disneyland - 2012 Edition

    Hi! We would love to visit Disneyland on one of the following weeks. Any idea which week will be lighter crowds? We don't mind "missing" unavailable activities-just would prefer the lightest crowds possible. The website I referred to last time we went was miserably wrong in crowd info so I'm hoping someone here might have better experience with the expanse of crowds regarding our two options. Thanks so much!!!

    We are looking at either

    April 23-27
    or
    May 14-18

    Any info would be so helpful!

    Grad Nite's will be running on May 16-18 so I'm sure the parks will be closing early. No info on the Disney calendar about park hours for those dates yet though. Parks only open from 9am-9pm during the week of April 23-27. Probably get better weather in May.

    I would say yes. It's about the middle of "spring break" time. I was there mid-week last week and it was getting busy. So I can imagine it's really busy now and will be even busier next weekend when I'm there yet again. However if it rains, that will clear out the park

    Thanks very much.

    Any reason why Touring Plans shows DCA busier on weekdays in September than in October? Last 2 weeks are busier than the first. DL levels seem relatively stable across the two periods in comparison.

    Thanks again for all the great advice.

    You are welcome.

    Somtimes data gets skewed because of one time events. Like when California Screaming is closed reducing capactiy and driving up crowds elsewhere. Rerouting for construction in DCA effecting crowds patterns.

    Also in October crowds shift to DL because of Halloween decorations and parties. When it's slow in the resort, DL can feel emptier as it has many more attractions to spread people over compared to DCA which is the smaller park.

    Hey there. Long time reader, first time poster. My family and I are considering a trip to DL the week after Thanksgiving (11/25-11/30). I've read that crowds are relatively low that week but would love to get the opinion of MiceChatters. Thanks.

    Yes it is busy. There is a false idea that people stay home on certain Holidays and the park doesn't get busy. While some will look for eggs in the morning, they spend thier family time at the parks.

    Plus there is too many tourist on Spring Break anyway.

    Anyone know if it will be busy on April 3-5 week days? I have never been during that week and am looking for minimal crowds. Your help is appreciated beyond measure.
