Go early and stay late and take a break in the middle!

Look for those hidden out of the way places to relax.

Take a ride on the Columbia and the Mark Twain.

Rest in the Tiki Room, just avoid the Totem Poles!

You are going to make about 100k new friends. Enjoy it! Don't let the crowds get you down. Stay out of the bottle necks (Adventure Land double dogleg, Tomorrowland between Star Tours and BLAB, and Critter Country dead end)

Chrispmoto,

Yes, the period in between Christmas and New years through to when most Schools get back in session from thier Christmas Break which is Jan 7, 2013 is one of the busiest times of the year at Disneyland.

It is slightly better, but as of Friday the 14th, all the major Theme Parks in Southern California have started to offer maximum hours and entertainment due to the fact so many students are off school (aka Christmas Peak Season).

But the basic rule of thumb, the week before Christmas is a bit lighter than after Christmas, but things like weather effect attendance.
