Disneyland wait times

Disneyland: Would the wait times be any different if we went Dec 15 instead of Dec 20?

Hi everyone. My family and I are planning a trip to Disneyland at christmas time. I hear that time of the year can be bad to go at. My question is if we go to disneyland 1 week before school is out would that make any difference? Would the wait times be any different if we went Dec 15 instead of dec 20.

Thanks

It's hit or miss. People are cramming in to see the holiday mansion ride.

I think it wouldn't make a difference. Disneyland is always full during the holidays! Not only for the Haunted Mansion ride ^^^ ... but also for all the other attractions. Like It's A Small World (Christmas Themed), The Parade, The Fireworks, The Castle ( Christmas Themed), etc. Bottom line... It's gonna be full.

Use the fast pass system and you'll be fine !

agreed it's hit or miss. But try to go on a day when schools are in session go teus-thurs (fri-monday usually busier) and during a annual pass blackout. If you factor in those 3 things if possible is your best chance to avoid the crowds.
