    We are planning to go to USA next year in early January. This will be our first trip to the US and to Disneyland. Will the park be open during this time. I was told that the park closes during winter. Thanks

    Hello Anna, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You and your family will have a fabulous time at the Disneyland Resort next January. The parks are open 365 days a year (366 days during leap years, of course!) During extremely busy days, such as Christmas Day or New Year's Eve, Disneyland may close temporarily if crowds reach capacity. It is for safety reasons but when the crowds start thinning out, the park will re-open for Guests to enjoy. 

    January is one of my family's favorite times to head to the Disneyland Resort. The weather is cool, most children are back in school after the holidays, thus smaller crowds during January. A time you will encounter larger crowds will be Martin Luther King Jr. weekend where many US schools have long weekend, which also typically coincides with Star Wars Half Marathon

    When the parks are less busy, some attractions may be closed for refurbishment. These are usually posted in advance (subject to change), so Guests can plan their time in the parks accordingly. 

    I hope this information is helpful in planning your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. Please visit me on the Panel again if you have further questions.

    Have a magical day,

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
