is September busy in disneyland

Just wondering if disneyland is busy in early September around the 4, 5. Is the American kids out of school? Or is there any public holidays?

Just wondering if I need to buy the magic hour pass.

From an Australian family.

Melissa A,

Not exactly sure what you mean by "magic Hour Pass" as there is nothing like that at Disneyland. There is a free Fastpass system at Disneyland the use of which comes with any ticket. Or there is Magic Morning which allows you 1 entry to Disneyland Park only, one hour before regular opening time, the use of which comes within a 3 day and up Parkhopper ticket if purchased online only.

Just in case.... Your dates should be good as far as crowds go, if you avoid the Half Marathon, and busy Labor Day Weekend which is August 30-Sept 2 for 2013. Dates for that Holiday will change slightly from year to year.

Keep in mind though, that Haunted Mansion will be closed during that time period, to get its Holiday overlay, and wont open again till the start of Halloweentime at Disneyland which is very likely to be Sept 13 for 2013. Space Mountain also usually closes around the dates you are thinking of as well to get its Holiday overlay for Halloweentime, and does not open till the start of Halloweentime.

Hours are off season ones, and usually look something like 10 am till 8pm on weekenday M-Thurs. And longer hours of 8am till 12pm Fri, Sat,Sun, with Fireworks and Fantasmic shows only being shown on the weekends, Fri,Sat,Sun. But usually there is still a nightly World of Color show. So you may want to include a weekend day in your plans.

Also keep in mind, that usually is also the hottest time of the year, with usually a hot wind that can blow along with it, so be prepared.
