    Really depends on the school the person goes to and whether they're in college or not. My boyfriend just had his spring break, and I don't have mine until April 10th or so.

    I think the busy-ness is an awesome sign for DLR! Sure, you have to wait a little longer, but at least the park is getting appreciated 24/7.

    Yeah, in SoCal they are on a rolling spring break... the grade schools and high schools are all out at different times. The Cal State Univ. system is out on break now (not sure about the UC system) and most community colleges are out the week of the 10th of April. So it is going to be a mess until after Easter!

    Re: Crowds! Is It Spring Break Already???

    I guess what threw me is that I was just there a couple weeks ago on a Friday and DL was seriously half empty. It was cold and rainy, but it was at the beginning of our college spring break. The KIDS, on the other hand, won't be out until April 16 - 22. Most SoCal schools are out either the week before or after Easter, hence the SoCal AP blackout dates. And there were kids EVERYWHERE today! I guess March and April are typically pretty busy, but...holy cow. It was seriously a Summer crowd today. My only thought is that year round schools must be out now. That and the fact that the 50th continues to draw crowds...

    Different schools do them at different times. Mine was the earliest, the week of March 12th. The season started then and goes all the way through April 22nd, with the heaviest weeks being the last two.

    And there are several female conductors! I can name at least six off the top of my head, and with a lot of luck, I should join their ranks in a few weeks.

    So. Many. Tourists.
    But so many adorable little kids... I was laughing at them all day lobng!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    scottware's graph shows spring break crowds to be nearly equal to summer's crowds.

    Check here

    "Time of Year" graph. Maybe it's old, but it's still relevant.

    Re: Crowds! Is It Spring Break Already???

    Many tourist from Arizona, Nevada & New Mexico are visiting the resort right now so I guess schools in those states are currently on spring break.


    Operating hours for the park currently are :
    Monday - Thursday: 9AM - 11PM
    Friday - Sunday : 8AM - 12AM

    Park hours will remain the same thru April 6th.

    Then from April 7th - 29th, park hours will be:
    daily : 8AM - 12AM

    Re: Crowds! Is It Spring Break Already???

    A lot of other states have earlier spring breaks because they go back to school in August and get out in May. It's all relative.
    A signature should go here.

    I was there today. Got there around 1pm...it was impossibly crowded..insanely crowded. Sux, cuz I'm taking a little vacation from work so I have days off and its packed. Boooo
    My son had "mid-winter break" during presidents day week in Feb. He has official "Spring Break" in about 3 more weeks after Easter. My guess is DL will be very busy through Labor Day from now on. I am planning another trip with my 2yr old Mon-Wed Thanksgiving week and I expect crowds but oh well.

    Yikes! I guess that means that when I'm there (in a week and a half! WOOT!!) that it's gonna be crazy?? The weekend before Easter? We thought we would be safe, but from what every one has been saying it doesn't seem like there will be a safe time from now till after the 50th......
