I absolutely LOVE Disneyland in November! Did I mention that I love going to Disneyland in November?
I know I said the same thing twice, but it is absolutely worth repeating. Disneyland in November is absolutely amazing and I’m going to share with you my secrets for making your vacation magical!
Disneyland in November
My first tip for visiting in November is to use Disney MaxPass and check out these park hopper tips to help you get the most bang for your buck.

How are the Crowds at Disneyland in November?
The answer to that question is that it depends when you go. Crowds at the beginning of the month pretty light, but are drastically different the week of Thanksgiving.
By looking at the crowd calendar above, as long as you avoid the weekends, Veterans Day, and the week of Thanksgiving, you may experience some of the lightest crowds of the year!
Don’t let heavy crowds scare you away though. Crowds are almost always part of the Disneyland experience, but as long as you are prepared, you will still have a great time!
My advice to beat the crowds if you do go during a busy time in November is to arrive early, have a plan of what are your must-do attractions, don’t plan on seeing everything, and use these tips with Disney MaxPass.

Special Events in November at Disneyland
Dapper Day November 3, 2019
Dapper Day is an unofficial event that takes place at Disneyland. It’s a day when guests typically dress up in their cutest clothes and “step out in style.”
Holidays at the Disneyland Resort November 8, 2019 – January 6, 2020
The holidays are truly a magical time of year to visit Disneyland! I love that Disney starts celebrating the holiday season in November. That gives guest more time to experience the magic!
It’s also nice that you can visit early in November when the crowds are lower.
You can expect to see the return of “World of Color-Season of Light,” which is a holiday-themed version of the amazing nighttime show!
Also, the holidays will be spreading to Cars Land where two rides will transform to celebrate. You’ll be able to enjoy Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree.
Over at Disneyland Park, the Haunted Mansion is still Haunted Mansion Holiday and you will be able to witness the “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular!

The average high temperatures at Disneyland in November are in the low 70s to low 80s and lows are in the low 50s.
By looking at the forecast at Disneyland in November, you can see that most of the days are expected to be sunny or partly cloudy, but there are a few days that call for rain.

What to Pack for November Disneyland Vacations
Here are a few of the things that you’ll want to consider packing for your Disneyland vacation in November.
You don’t want to be unprepared and end up having to spend your hard-earned money on things that could easily been brought from home.
Make sure you check out my post on what you should have in your Disney Park Bag and how you can use Amazon to save money at Disney!
#1 Pack Rain Ponchos
Although there are only a few days that have rain in the forecast for November, it is smart to be prepared with a few disposable ponchos.
My kids are not big fans of getting wet on rides. Splash Mountain happens to be one of my favorite attraction, so wearing a poncho while riding, allows my family to still enjoy it!
Check our these inexpensive disposable ponchos!
It is so much easier to carry around a couple of ponchos than it is to bring a spare set of clothes for my kids when the get wet.
#2 Pack Sun Protection
The sun and UV rays are still an issue you need to think about in California, even in November. Make sure that you are ready by packing some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.

Also, make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!
#3 What Type of Clothing to Pack in November
The mornings and evenings at Disneyland will be cold in November, especially if you take advantage of Magic Mornings.
These are my favorite leggings to wear at Disneyland!
In November, I usually wear jeans or a soft pair of leggings with a short-sleeved top. But I always bring a lightweight jacket or sweatshirt.

Make sure that it is light enough that you can keep it in a backpack or tied around your waist when it is warm outside during the day.

Ride Closures in November at Disneyland
One of my favorite things about Disney is that they take pride in their parks and attractions.
Because of this, there are usually a few rides at both parks that are closed for refurbishment at different times throughout the year.
You can stay up to date with ride closures by checking Disneyland.com.
Disneyland seems to update their list of refurbishments one or two months ahead of time, so check back for November closures in September or October.
