May 2013 Hours/Shows

When will Disney release their hours and show/fireworks schedule for May ? This alone will determine where I stay & if we do a 3 or 4 day ticket. We arrive the early afternoon of May 26th and leave for the beach around 3:30 -4 p.m. Wednesday the 29th. Got to believe it will be very busy Sunday the 26th and Monday (Memorial Day)

Yes, Memorial Day weekend will be very busy at Disneyland.

Disneyland usually shows about 6 week out on thier Calendar.

May hours are usually Mon-Thurs 10am till 8pm, Fri,Sat,Sun 8am till 12pm.

The Fireworks and Fantasmic shows are usually only on the weekends in May, Fri,Sat,Sun. There is usually a nightly World of Color show.

Hours for Memorial day on Monday will likely be 8am till 12pm with the Fireworks show and multiple Fantasmic shows since they are expecting large crowds for the Holiday.

Heres last years schedule for May

www.wdwinfo.com/disneyland/park-hours.cfm…

Hours before Memorial day weekend are usually the standard hours, however, Its likely from past years info hours would be extended for the last part of May after the Holiday weekend, May 28-31 since there are some Schools that begin to get out for thier Summer Break around that time. Hours might be around 8am till 11pm with a nightly Fireworks and Fantasmic show and World of Color show.

I think you will be in time for the opening of summer season. I remember correctly, in 2011 Disneyland Resort began their summer season on Memorial Day weekend. I believe they started that in 2010, and called it Summer Nightastic. They delayed the summer season last year to coincide with the opening of Carsland and Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure. It was determined earlier in the year that those projects were not going to be ready for a summer opening unless they delayed the opening of summer season. This year there are big openings that will delay the season. You might find out for sure by calling or emailing DLR and asking when they will begin the summer season. They won't give you a schedule but most likely will have a date for that.

Red,

Last year there were extended hours after Memorial Day according to the Calendar. What "big opening" are you reffering to for this year?

Thanks happytotrip for the link to the May 2012 show schedule. I'm planning on booking a dining package for world of colour, so it's good to see what times that show runs when it comes to reserving a time for dinner.

Keep in mind the Calendar is just a general idea from last year, things can and do sometimes change from year to year. Which is likely why you can only make arrangements for a dining package ect 60 days out.
