Disneyland Hours

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 Hours December 2014

All through December Disneyland celebrates the holiday season with special decorations. The weeks with Christmas and New Years are popular vacation weeks, so Disneyland opens earlier and closes later to handle the holiday crowds. From December 20 - December 31, both parks are open one hour early for Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hour if you have 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.
