Doing some research for my sister. Her and her fiancé will be in LA 26th November to 30th November. They are staying in Hollywood and wish to hire a car for two of these days to go to Santa Monica Pier / Venice beach etc one day and the other day to go to Disneyland.
My questions are regarding the 28th November being Thanksgiving. Please excuse my ignorance, I understand Thanksgiving is a large holiday in the States so wondering what they should actually do on Thanksgiving.
- Will the theme parks be busy on Thanksgiving (they wish to visit Disneyland and Universal during their stay)? Or will families more likely to be at home celebrating than at the parks?
- Also is it just the one day that’s a public holiday or will kids be on school holidays etc (to visit the other park on another day)?
- Would they be better to go for thanksgiving day and visit Santa Monica Pier / Venice Beach – or will nothing be open / happening down there?
As I understand the hire car places wont be open on thanksgiving so if they hire a car the day before (to do either SM or Disneyland) they will more thank likely still have it for the whole Thanksgiving day.
Any Advice is greatly appreciated!!!
