    Shannon from CA Asked

    Hello! We are planning a big family trip with all ages. What is the crowd level during Veterans Day weekend usually like?

    Hi Shannon!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you have a great trip planned at one of the best times of the year! There is nothing quite as magical as visiting Disneyland Resort near the holidays and I'm sure y'all are going to have an amazing time.

    You will find heavier crowds on Saturday and moderate to heavy crowds on Sunday. For evaluating crowds, the positive side is that Veterans Day weekend is blocked out for some Annual Passport holders. The downside is that it is the weekend of the runDisney Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend so there will be an influx of runners. Since many of the runners have to go to bed early for their races, you should find that the evening shows, like Fantasmic! and World of Color are lower than you may expect for a busy weekend. 

    Even though it's a popular weekend, I'm confident y'all are still going to have an absolute blast! My biggest recommendation for traveling with large groups is to make a dining reservation for you all to enjoy time together, but realize throughout the day it's okay to split into smaller groups and do some things on your own. My other tip is to not miss Haunted Mansion Holiday! It's my absolute favorite attraction and a must do at this time of year!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions before your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
