    What's the best time in August to visit?

    I am planning a last minute trip for Aug, but I can't decide which weekend to go. What days do you all think will have the least people???

    Come during the week! I will be there Aug 1st and 2nd!

    Schools in AZ start Aug 15th. I know other states back east start that early as well but So Cal school usually start around labor day.

    The last week in August is usually not very crowded, but D/L has sometimes reverted back to winter hours earlier than you'd think. Also, double-check the 'closed for refurb' info - some of the attractions start shutting down at that time also.

    Try looking for the middle of the week deals at hotels. Usually they have better prices that start on Tuesdays and run until the end of the week.

    According to the Disneyland website, the Remember fireworks will be at 9:25pm that night. Fantasmic is showing at 9pm and 10:30pm.

    Check hotel prices and go when rooms are the cheapest (that means they have fewer rented out for that date)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    They all seem to be the same. I have checked for practically the entire month. I mostly care about later hours, meaning we will have to come on a weekend. I am also afraid of them cancelling the fireworks on weeknights. That is one of the main reasons that I need to come before sept 30. I still haven't been for the 50th!
