    DL trip planning...

    howdy howdy , around this time of year, when should i make a trip to disneyland, before the holiday crowds start getting hectic and out of control, most likely if i go, it will be on a saturday.

    also i noticed on disneyland.com , it says that monsters inc. is down at DCA , does anyone know for how long? was it a scheduled refurb or did it just break down?

    tips please, im hoping maybe to go sometime after next week with a pair of park hoppers

    Re: DL trip planning...

    I just booked a trip for Friday through Monday of this coming week. We're staying at the Fairfield Inn right across the street on Harbor Blvd. We're flying into Long Beach as well.

    Should be fun, but we're expecting crowds over the weekend.

    Plan for cold and possibly rain.

    And have fun!

    Weekdays are generally better than weekends crowd-wise. I may go in the middle of not this week but the next.

    Re: DL trip planning...

    ok i found out im either going on the 15th, or the 22nd of december, im really hoping its the 15th to avoid crowds, but even then, how will crowds be during the 15th and 22nd? im only going for one day with park hoppers, hopefully i can have alot of fun and catch fantasmic.

    also anyone know the status on monsters inc? its closed on the disneyland website, how long is it scheduled to be closed for?

    Any weekend this month is going to be a madhouse.

    I'm going Thursday the 20th through Sunday the 23rd. I know the weekend is going to be crazy, but I have high hopes for that Thursday.

    I would suggest tacking on a weekday to your trip if possible.

    Re: DL trip planning...

    I'm flying in from the bay and will be at the park on 12/11 and 12/12. I'm hoping the crowds are moderate to small in size and not too excessive or overwhelming.

    I'm most looking forward to riding the subs with their new Nemo overlay. I'm also looking forward to getting some character photos. (I'm a big kid, like forrealllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll) Generally just can't wait to get away from everyday life!

    Re: DL trip planning...

    I'm going on Tuesday the 11th, I think! What do y'all think the crowd forecast is? I'm thinking not too bad, at least for the holiday season. Early in the week, not in the full brunt of the holiday rush yet...shouldn't be too horrendous, n'est-ce pas?
