With two magical Theme Parks, plus one of Southern California’s most spectacular entertainment, dining, hotel and shopping districts, Disneyland seem to have earned itself “The Happiest Place on Earth.” However, this is arguable but the fact remains that it is one of the most visited theme parks in the world.
No doubt, the park’s popularity has been growing since opening day in 1955. It draws millions of visitors from all around the world every year. In 2016, Disney adopted demand pricing at its three parks to better control crowds. So, they charge less on low-demand days and boost gate prices on high-demand days.
Peak times call for crowd control
However, the popular “Happiest place on Earth” reaches capacity a few times in a year. This usually happens during the peak tourist seasons in mid-summer and around Christmas. On Friday, December 27, 2019, Disneyland temporarily stopped selling daily tickets when the Anaheim theme park reached capacity.
The park issued a statement noting that visitors with annual passes could still enter Disneyland. While guests with “park-hopper” tickets to visit both parks could visit only California Adventure until the crowding at Disneyland subsided. Though winter holiday seasons are usually busy, the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the park has increased the number of tourists tremendously.
Latest and upcoming magical moments
Meanwhile, if you missed the flurry of activities at Disneyland this season, don’t worry. Amazing times await you in 2020. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, an all-new land is now open.
