It’s never a bad time to visit the Disneyland Resort, but for many Guests, determining when to visit the parks can depend on just how bad they expect the crowds to be. While summer is not only extremely hot but also extremely crowded, many Guests may decide to hold off until the weather cools and the crowds clear. However, now may be one of the best times to visit The Happiest Place on Earth.

Wait times at both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure have been low as of late, and this week is no exception. Wait times for even the most popular rides remain practically walk-ons. Radiator Springs Racers, one of the top rides at Disney California Adventure Park is only 15 minutes, which is nearly unheard of!

Take a look at more crazy-low wait times below.

In addition to the low standby wait times, virtual queues also have openings long past their distribution starts. Both Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disneyland Park and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure at California Adventure operate only on a virtual queue system. Boarding groups for both attractions open once at 7 a.m. and again at 12 p.m. Traditionally, all boarding groups fill within a matter of minutes, but that has not been the case lately — boarding groups have been available hours after they are released.

What is surprising about these wait times is the fact that they are so low, even though even more people can enjoy the magic of Disneyland. Disneyland’s new annual passes — now called Magic Keys — are now on sale, something that a lot of people have been waiting for. Despite the Magic Key sales, Guests are still apparently waiting to visit.

While wait times are low right now, they will most likely pick up this weekend, as it is a long holiday weekend. All reservations are booked up for Saturday and Sunday at both Disneyland and California Adventure, but reservations are still available for Monday, which is Labor Day.
