I am torn between which week in August to go to Disneyland. I am looking at either the week of August 20th or the week of the 27th. There seem to be pluses and minuses for either week. The 20th, the parks are open longer and there is more entertainment. But that is the week of the return of the annual passes. The 27th may present lower attendance levels because some kids are back at school, but the parks close earlier and the entertainment is sparse. I am willing to go this week, but will the crowd levels really be different from the week before?
I called the onsite hotels and they are wide open both weeks. That seems strange for two weeks in summer. Last year they were sold out for much of the summer. Could these summer weeks be slower then usual? Or is it a mirage?
Please Help!! I need some professional guidance!
