Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately this is when we're scheduled to go. We're traveling with a toddler and staying two nights in Anaheim. We had planned to visit Disneyland on our one full day there. :(
Bumping up this post.
Also it looks like Wed Oct 1 Disneyland Park only is closing earlier than usual, hours are 8am till 6pm. Likely for some event.
What about on Christmas
The Disneyland Resort Parks don't close early for either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day any more. They may have just a bit shorter hours on Christmas Eve as compared to Christmas Day but not like the hours posted for Sept 18 in the original post. If considering visiting the parks on those days, expect them to be packed. It is the busiest week of the year for them. There are many days prior to those in December and November to immerse yourself in the Christmas spirit at Disneyland without such heavy crowding.
Just an FYI, traditionally, nearby Knott's Berry Farm theme park closes on Christmas Day for the employees to celebrate with their families and closes very early on Christmas Eve (something like 5 or 6 ). Since Christmas Day is on Thursday this year, there should be no Christmas ice show there on Christmas Eve due to the normal pattern of the figure skaters having Wednesdays off.Edited: 4:50 am, November 06, 2014
Closing early on September 10th not the 18th
ErIca I think you'll find its closing both dates early.
