    When will it be busy at Disneyland in 2008?

    So before the questions start getting asked about how busy it will be on any particular day of the year ... I figured let's get them all out of the way now.

    Whenever the Deluxe pass is blocked-out it will be busy.

    The parks are generally in high-capacity mode when Deluxe AP's are blocked out. You can see Deluxe block out days here. http://disneyland.disney.go.com/disn...utCalendarPage

    Whenever the SoCal pass is NOT blocked-out on a Sunday.

    Expect in influx of SoCal AP's. You can see SoCal block out days here.
    http://disneyland.disney.go.com/disn...utCalendarPage

    Other days to watch out for SoCal passholders is the last Sunday before they are blocked out for the summer. This would be June 22nd. And also the first Sunday they are allowed back in. This would be August 17th.

    Weekends between January 7th and May 22nd.

    Disneyland is offereing the 2fer deal and the parks will be busy.

    The weekend of May 16, 17 and 18th.

    This is the last weekend of the 2fer. The parks, especially DCA will be packed.

    During Spring Break

    Spring Break times run from Mid-March to the end of April. Couple that with the 2fer and you have a busy park.

    During any major convention in Anaheim

    You can find all convention information here
    http://www.anaheimconventioncenter.com/events.cfm

    Here are some of the major ones.

    January 17 through 20 - NAMM
    January 26 and 27 - Yu Gi Oh Regional
    January 26 and 27 - MiceChat 3 year anniversary and Gumball Rally
    Weekend of February 2nd - USA Danceport championships
    Feb 10 through 13 - CHA Winter Convention and trade show
    Feb 22 through 24 - United Spirit Association All Cheer and Dance Competition (avoid at ALL COSTS)
    Feb 28 through March 2 - Religious Education Congress
    March 7 through 9 - Spirit and Dance Drill National Competition (again, AVOID)
    March 12 through 15 - Big West Basketball Tournament
    April 3 through 6 - Orange County Boat Show (Don't miss the boat ... show)
    April 18 through 20 - American Showcase National Cheer and Dance Competition (do I have to say it again?)
    July 6 through 10 - LA Dance Magic Finals
    October 10 and 11 - BlizzCon

    But as you can see, there is pretty much something ALWAYS going on at the convention center. Which means for people who have to travel, they will bring the family who will spend time at the parks while Mom or Dad is at a convention.

    During Major Disneyland events

    The weekend before, the week of, and the weekend after July 17th
    Disneyland 1/2 Marathon Weekend - Labor Day Weekend
    Bats Day Weekend - Generally around the weekend of August 20th. If I had a guess I'd say August 22 through 24 in 2008.
    Gay Days weekend - Generally the first weekend in October

    Around Holidays

    MLK Weekend
    Presidents Day Weekend
    Easter week
    Memorial Weekend
    July 4th weekend
    All of July and most of August
    Labor Day weekend (but usually the least crowded of the holidays)
    Columbus weekend (increasingly busy the last few years)
    Veterans Day weekend
    The week before and through Thanksgiving weekend
    From the week before Christmas and through the first weekend after New Years
    Weekends in December


    So what to do when it's busy? Get there early. Take it slow. Have fun.

    Great post Clinks. Although I don't think it will block the tidal wave of "is it busy" threads, it may be a great idea for a sticky.

    You forgot about Bat's Day Clinks..

    When the block robed masses come out and into the light they go..I would know, i use to be one of them, till i realized that man, all that black sure does get hot..

    It is usually busy that day though, because that is when Sundays are not blocked out for us lowely SoCal AP'ers...

    I agree, great compilation. A 'sticky' would be well-warranted (but doomed to be universally ignored , like all informative posts)!

    Agreed. The best way to keep this thread is for some kind of controversy to happen. Like somebody to say they love going on Cheer weekends and the sounds of teenage girls screaming at the top of their lungs on Pirates while wielding their hair-light things and taking flash pictures.

    That'd get this thread moving.

    How we just post a bunch of random pop culture refrences and some obscure movie lines...
    That seems to get peoplels attention, or is that just mine?

    Since the cheer girls will be there on my birthday does that mean I get to dress in pig tails, scream extra loud and dance in the streets???

    BTW SirClinks you are my hero of the day for this thread and I too wish it would become a sticky.

    The nice thing is that in 2009 Feb 29 is supposed to be a very slow day at the park.

    I'm slow today ... that took me a second.

    I was like ... "There's no Feb 29 in 2009, that's THIS year".

    You should note in particular the last So Cal AP day/weekend before summer blockout, and the first So Cal AP day/weekend after the summer blockout.

    And you should also note 7/17. The weekends around them will be normal summer weekends, but 7/17 brings out the more fanatical PAPs.

    And that Super Bowl Sunday is simply a Sunday. Not way uncrowded as used to be prior to, say, 1995, but not overcrowded as some claim in a relative expected sense to the legend.
