I just read a post that said "I went to Disneyland in September and didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes on any line."
I was there for Christmas. NEVER AGAIN! You've got to be STONE crazy to go to DL on Christmas, New Years or Spring Break. The lines for rides were two hours long, it was difficult to walk, hundreds of strollers lined Main street for parades an hour early. The fireworks were cancelled each night. And on Christmas Day, The park closed at 9 am due to capacity crowd. Even the lines to get a silly signature from a Princess were like a half hour or more long. The Narnda Witch line was an hour long, just ot see an ugly with.
I MUST SAY, the fast passes were a life saver!!!!!!!
IF you are an annual pass holder, I understand. If you have lots of $$$, yes. But if you are a family traveling to DL from out of town for the first time with your children, be WISE, Don't come on a major holiday.
