My family is staying at Howard Johnson - Anaheim the first week of June and we’re thinking of doing one day at California Adventure Mon. 6/3 or Tues. 6/4. With SWGE opening at DL, I’ve been trying to feel out potential crowd levels before we committ. Of course, by all accounts, DL and CA are supposed to be busy. The weird thing is, many hotels on and off site still have availability, even for the most desirable room categories.There is also still availability for the desert party and ADRs at CA. Based on this, it’s making me think crowds might be lower than predicted. I know DL is a “locals park” so hotels aren’t the best reflection but I’ve never seen this much last minute availability (we live close, so we do random visits to SoCal every now and then).
My kids and I have been to both DL and WDW at near peak capacity so crowds aren’t a big deal to us. However, my mom would be with us for the first time and I worry she’d be overwhelmed if crowds are huge.
Any thoughts on my theory? I’m asking mostly out of curiosity but any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
