    what is the best time to visit Disneyland California Adventure?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ravi. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a magical week. 

    I see that you've indicated your arrival date for your Disneyland Resort vacation as September 30. Weather-wise, that is a nice time to visit the parks. The day you arrive is a Friday with Mickey's Halloween Party scheduled for that evening. Crowds will be lighter in comparison to those during peak summer travel season. However, Mickey's Halloween Party is a very popular event with limited number of dates, so do expect a bit of a crowd but it'll be manageable. 

    In terms of the time of day to visit Disney California Adventure, I prefer early in the morning. World of Color, Radiator Springs Racers, and Frozen - Live at the Hyperion offer FASTPASSES but tend to run out by noon. I really enjoyed the musical production of Frozen, and if you're a fan of the animated movie, you'll have a delightful time as well! 

    If you have a chance to enjoy Disney California Adventure Park after the sun goes down, I definitely recommend checking out Cars Land during this time as well. It is absolutely stunning! 

    I hope this information is helpful for you as you continue planning your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, Ravi. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions.

    See you real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

I am a wife and mother to 2 children, a 14 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have always enjoyed going to Disneyland Resort as a child and now that I am a mother, I love watching my children experience Disneyland Resort through their eyes. It is a true delight seeing my daughter wear a ball gown walking side by side with Cinderella or my son jumping gleefully after he defeated Darth Maul in a light saber duel! Learn More About Kiki
