I went on Christmas day one time and it was the worst experience of my life. Disneyland was at capacity by 11 am. Was forced to go to DCA instead til later. Once I got in, so packed I only went on 3 rides.

Make sure you get there before opening because early is the best time to ride, and if you’re staying at a Disney hotel take advantage of your Early Magic Hours – the best time to ride Radiator Springs Racers. Also, when we were there for New Year’s Eve we found we could actually ride a lot because most people were scoping out places to watch parades and shows hours in advance. We even stumbled on a secluded spot to watch the 9 pm fireworks with a perfect view and no people. I’m not a regular grandma I’m a Disney grandma. Get there early! An hour before it opens. I promise you’ll be happy you did. Do the short rides first. You can get through Fantasyland in 10-15 min first thing in the morning,

Dream about Disneyland with our item!
But those rides will have huge waits later in the day. People get irritated when they don’t have a plan. When it’s super busy, go on Pirates, Haunted, Small World, the train, tiki room..something that takes a while so you’re out of the crowds. You’ll have a great time! We’ve been at Disneyland twice for New Year’s Eve and love it. Florida’s closer for us (although still far), but there’s something special about Disneyland – more intimate and true to Walt’s design, and of course there’s Cars Land!
