If you are planning to vacation at the happiest place on earth you will need to know when does Disneyland open and close.

Keep reading to 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:

St. Patrick's Day (Thursday March 17 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.
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.
