Daily Disneyland hours of operation and early morning admission to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California.
When does Disneyland open and close? See when Disneyland opens and closes each month.Disneyland Hours by Month
Disneyland California and California Adventure theme parks are open every day of the year, but the open and close times vary. During summer and holidays it is common for Disneyland to open at 8 AM and close at midnight, but on other days, Disneyland may open at 9 or 10 AM and close earlier such as 8 PM. On rare occasions when there is a party in the evening, they may close earlier than 8 PM.
One of the Disneyland secrets is to arrive early and use those early morning passes if you are eligible to enter Disneyland an hour before the general public and ride some popular rides with no lines! Disneyland is open 365 days a year, which means, yes Disneyland is open on popular American holidays such as:
Thanksgiving (Thursday November 26 2015)
Christmas Eve (Thursday December 24 2015)
Christmas Day (Friday December 25 2015)
New Years Eve (Thursday December 31 2015)
New Years Day (Friday January 1 2016)
Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday January 18 2016)
Presidents Day (Monday February 15 2016)
St. Patrick's Day (Thursday March 17 2016)
Easter Sunday (Mar 27 2016)
Memorial Day (Monday May 30 2016)
Independence Day July 4th (Monday July 4 2016)
Labor Day (Monday September 5 2016)
Halloween (Monday October 31 2016)
The early morning admission hours are for Magic Hour or Magic Morning. Note that
early admission to Disneyland is typically available on Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays for Disneyland Resort hotel guests, and most of those dates if you've purchased a 3-day or longer ticket
or special vacation package. Early morning admission to California
Adventures is limited to Disneyland Resort hotel guests on Sunday,
Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Occasionally Disney changes these dates.
In 2014, from December 20 - December 31, both parks were open one hour early for Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hour if you had qualifying tickets. Based on prior years, it is possible for the crowd capacity to exceed the daily limit during these holiday weeks, so you can even be turned away unless you are holding a multi-day ticket or Premium Annual Passport. So it is important to arrive early, and I mean before 8 AM.
What are the Disneyland Hours of Operation for December? See the Disneyland
On the official Disneyland website, you will see that they publish their hours only 4 to 6 weeks before the date. This makes in hard for those who are planning vacations to Disneyland. I've chosen to publish the prior year hours if the current year is not available, to provide an idea of what to expect.
Why does Disneyland close early some nights? - Disneyland closes early for some special events or to set up for those special events. For example, Disneyland closes early some nights in September and October for Mickey's Halloween party, a special ticketed event. Also although Disneyland is open every day, during the off-season the park may close early such as 7 PM or 8 PM on weekdays.
When does Disneyland open and close for later dates?
Disney publishes the Disneyland hours for opening and closing only about 4-6 weeks in advance. We've included last year's calendar as a guide on what to expect. This Disneyland schedule is updated from their website, which is subject to change. To check their current Disneyland schedule, see Disneyland Hours at Disney's website disneyland.disney.go.com.
