    It will most likely be really hot and crowded! Make sure you visit the Cove Bar or one of the bars in Downtown Disney!! yay for being 21!

    Finding Nemo will probably have the longest lines... so get there early!!

    Before we moved to So Cal we used to take our vacation every year to DL in August. It will get busy but it's still very do-able. The mornings are less busy and you can get a lot done before noon. Have a wonderful time celebrating your 21st Birthday at DL!!!!

    oh one more thing... definitely take advantage of the Fast Pass system... it will make your day a lot better! Rides like Tower of Terror and Soaring over California in DCA and Space Mountain in Disneyland are big ones to consider with the idea of avoiding super long lines!

    August is defiunitely the time of year to ride Splash Mountain and Grizzley River Rapids. Get a fastpass for Splash Mtn first thing because everbody else will have the same idea. Wear sandals because squishy shoes are no fun.

    Asking if it's gonna be busy in the Summer is like asking if the sky is blue.

    Last year , my family and I went in August AFTER most of the schools in CA had already started. The crowds were just right!

    Re: August at Disneyland?

    Worse than the crowds in August is the mid-day heat. It can get close to 100 in the afternoons especially in late August, but if you plan right (get there at opening, use fastpasses and plan for mid-afternoon down time swimming and the likes, I think you will be fine.

    LA Schools will not be is session yet (I dont think they get out of summer school till 8/16) but many colleges will be in session already, as will many school districts like where I live an hour north of the park. Its close to the end of the summer travel period. Either way its your 21st! you gotta do it. Have a great time.

    This is the one time of year it will be hot!!!

    I know many of you will think I sound like a broken record, but I highly recommend -- no insist -- that you do yourself a favor and stay at a hotel near the beach (Newport or Huntington)! It is a LOT cooler there in August, is only 20 minutes away, and you can relax at the beach if DLR gets to be too much for you.

    And as someone said earlier it can be quite humid sometimes in August, as So Cal can sometimes pick up some of the monsoon moisture from Arizona and Northern Mexico, making things surprisingly humid.

    One more thing, Josh or Robert (whichever one of you is turning 21). I would like to commend you on wanting to go to Disneyland on your 21st birthday instead of going out and getting drunk. (BTW you can do that at DCA, but don't go overboard if you do...)

    Re: August at Disneyland?

    I'll be making my yearly trip with my fam to DL during the first week plus of August. We usually go in late May/Early June but since I'm a graduate student my summer classes extend into July.

    I hope to see you all there...

    Re: August at Disneyland?

    Pretty much the same thing everyone else said, it will be hot and it will be extremely busy. Try the Cove Bar at DCA or the Lost Bar at Disneyland Hotel for some cool liquid refreshment.
