2019 is going to be one of the biggest years the Disneyland Resort has ever seen. With more seasonal
celebrations than ever before and the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, there is something for
everyone to enjoy. However, with so much to do and see, it can be hard trying to figure out when to
travel to The Happiest Place on Earth. Luckily, I’ve partnered with my friends at Get Away Today to give
you a guide on when to visit Disneyland in 2019. We’ll walk you through the best deals, crowd
predictions and more. So, hold onto your ears and get ready to plan!
Best Times to Visit the Disneyland Resort in 2019
If you’re not a huge Star Wars fan, or simply can’t get enough of Disneyland, you might want to consider
traveling in the spring. Not only will you be able to experience festivities like Get Your Ears On: A Mickey
and Minnie Celebration, Lunar New Year or the Food and Wine Festival, but you can also save up to
$500 or more on vacation packages when you book your trip with Get Away Today.
When you travel to the Disneyland Resort from January 7 – May 23, 2019*, you can save up to $86 per
ticket! Plus, when you combine these ticket savings with Get Away Today’s hotel specials, you can save
hundreds of dollars on your next vacation. With ticket and hotel prices so low, traveling to Disneyland is
more affordable than ever before.
Additionally, you can experience some of the year’s biggest celebrations during the spring. Starting in
mid-January until late May, you can enjoy the brand-new Get Your Ears On: A Mickey and Minnie
Celebration. Here, you’ll be able to party with Disney’s most iconic duo for their 90 th birthday bash. This means that you can experience new and returning entertainment, limited time food items, exclusive
merchandise and more. Plus, the fun keeps growing as the months go by. With Mickey’s Mix Magic
starting on January 18 th , Mickey’s Soundsational Parade debuting on January 25 th and Valentine’s Month making its entrance in February, we can’t wait to see what this celebration has in store.
During this same timeframe, you can also ring in the Lunar New Year at the Disneyland Resort. From
January 25 – February 17, 2019, guests can celebrate the Year of the Pig at Disney California Adventure
Park. Here, you can enjoy multicultural performances, Asian-inspired cuisine, family-friendly activities
and all-new entertainment like Mulan’s New Year Procession.
Are you a food connoisseur? If so, you’ll want to visit during the Food and Wine Festival from March 1 –
April 23, 2019. With 13 food and beverage kiosks inspired by California cuisine, it’ll be hard to choose
what you’re going to feast on. Plus, they also have hands-on culinary experiences for kids, cooking
demonstrations and more.
The best part? Since so many people are waiting to travel until Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, we
predict that crowds won’t be too busy during the spring. Whether you want to experience Disneyland as
it is one last time, or even take a quick weekend trip to eat your way through the Food and Wine
Festival, you won’t want to miss out on the incredible savings from Get Away Today.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will FINALLY make its debut. After
years of anticipation, this innovative land will be coming to the Disneyland Resort in summer of 2019.
While no official date has been announced, we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
Because of how excited guests are for this land, we’re predicting that crowds will be larger than ever.
So, if you’re not one for crowds, I would recommend planning your vacation for the spring of this year.
However, if you’re like me and have been eager to see Battu come to life, there are SO many ways to
beat the crowds. With the debut of MaxPass and Mobile Ordering, you can easily save time in line for
attractions and at restaurants. Plus, we wouldn’t be surprised if more technology is revealed closer to its
Luckily, Get Away Today still has out of this world deals for the summer of 2019. With an entire new area to explore, you’ll want to have enough time to see it all. If you’re planning a vacation in during the
summer or beyond, we recommend taking advantage of their Extra Day Free ticket special. With this
deal, you can purchase a 5-Day Disneyland Park Hopper ticket for the price of a 4-Day. With five days of

As a tip, we recommend booking your vacation NOW to experience all of the fun. Even though official
dates haven’t been announced, at least you’ll get a head start on reserving your hotel and tickets at the
best price. Plus, with Get Away Today’s Peace of Mind Plan, you can easily change or cancel your
vacation without any additional fees.
Fall & Winter:
Of course, Halloween Time and Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are some of the most popular times of
year at the Disneyland Resort and it’s no surprise as to why. However, with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
opening in the summer, we’re not sure what these seasonal celebrations will consist of for 2019.
If you still want to experience the festive fun, but want to try and avoid large crowds, we have a couple
of dates we recommended. For Halloween Time travel, we suggest that you book your vacation in early-
September. If you want to enjoy the festive fun during Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, we
recommend going in early-November. While we can’t guarantee that these will be slow pockets, we
think it’ll be your best bet. However, we believe that the best time to travel is whenever works best for
