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...
It also depends on if you want to ride certain attractions, because there are the usual holiday closures of IASW and HM, plus Matterhorn is usually getting a refurb in the fall.
I would vote for October, once HM Holiday is back open, or late May, because the spring refurbs are usually done, and school is still in session, so you get a lot of attractions, but not huge crowds.
end of jan. into feb is always the best time to go. low crowds and the weather is fairly nice
The weather may be nice but keep in mind that January and February is in the rainy season and Anaheim on average gets 15 - 17 inches of rain per year. That may not sound like a lot, but when you consider that the rainy season goes from Nov - May the amount of rain that falls during that time period is the same as your wetter areas of the country that gets 30 inches per year. (And if it happensto be an El Nino year we can get 20-30 inches at least during that same 6 month period)
If you are concerned with crowds only, the end of January and February is the best time. If you are concerned with crowds and weather, October is your best bet.
Speaking of October, we're thinking of going this October and are wondering if there are any specific weekends to avoid crowd-wise. My friend and her family went last year not knowing it was Gay Days and it was so packed they didn't get to ride much. Is there anything like that to avoid this year?
