My favorite time to visit Disneyland is weekdays during the low season, I love how relaxed the resort feels when we aren’t competing with a million other families. If you are unable to go when school is in session, then your best bet is to spend Rodeo Break at Disneyland. Unlike fall break when Phoenix and Utah schools also take time off, Rodeo Break is unique to Tucson. Growing up we often spent Rodeo Break at Disneyland, and often ran into other families we knew because it’s a very popular time for Tucson families to visit Mickey Mouse.
If you spend some time at Big Thunder Ranch and snap a picture with Woody, you can make it a “Rodeo” experience. 😉
And extra special this year, Dapper Days is being held at the Disneyland Resort on Saturday and Sunday (2/22 & 2/23) of Rodeo Break. It’s a regular operating day at the parks but you’ll notice lots of guests dressed to the nines in vintage clothing. And if you like to save money you’re in luck because the Dapper Days folks are inclusive and share their discounts with everyone. And they are some SWEET discounts!
You can snag rooms at the Disneyland Resort for a steal!! I found a room at Disney’s Grand Californian for only $225 a night which is a CRAZY good deal! Rooms at the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel would be even better deals if you can find availability that suits your needs.
You can also save money on Disneyland Resort tickets, good for visits February 16, 2014 to February 27, 2014. Visit the Dapper Days website for more details and links to their discount room and ticket deals!!
Are you interested in learning more about this special event? I recommend checking out Babes in Disneyland’s Dapper Days post to see their experience last year with lots of fun pictures.
If you want to join in the vintage dressing up fun, search Dapper Days on Pinterest and you will find plenty of fun ideas. This fun Daisy Duck inspired outfit by DisneyBound caught my eye!
Dapper Days is not an official Disney event and you by no means need to participate in any way in order to take advantage of their awesome hotel and ticket deals – if you want to keep it real and represent Tucson’s Rodeo Break, you can just stick to jeans. 🙂
