During the week between Christmas and New Years, both Disneyland California and Disney California Adventure parks will be open, but it is likely that tickets will sell out well in advance so make your plans early!
Christmas Day is one of the most crowded of the entire year. In fact, Christmas week thru New Years Day is said to be their busiest week. Consider going around the second weekend. The best Christmas event is that Sat and Sun, the Candlelight Processional.
Weather in December
It’s actually the coldest month of the year at Disneyland. Temperatures during the day are in the 60°s to low 70°s on average. Evenings can get a little cold, with temperatures dropping to the low 50°s at night. Wet weather is also very possible in the month of December, but that’s a good thing!
December Weather at Disneyland
The average high in Anaheim during December is around 70º and the average low is around 47º. Personally, we like these cooler daytime temperatures, as this type of weather is perfect for racing around a theme park, especially if you’re carrying a backpack or have kids in tow.
The cheapest time to visit Disneyland is likely May 11 through May 14. The next cheapest dates are likely weekdays from Aug. 24 through Sept. 7.
Cold weather gear– consider packing hats, long sleeve shirts, pants, tennis shoes, and coat in case of cold weather during your trip. The mornings and evenings in Disney World will be a bit cooler and the Florida humidity can actually make it feel cold at night and when it’s raining.
It’s always a great time to visit Disney theme parks! However, when planning a trip to the Disneyland Resort, expect lower crowds from mid-September through mid-November (before the Thanksgiving break). Mid-January through mid-March is another time when potentially lower crowds are expected.
