There have been threads about when to go to the parks, in regard to conventions and events near or at DLR.

I began to make a list of various events mentioned here on the board.

Here is what I have come up with so far.
Please feel free to correct or add to the list.

    Good list...it'll be interesting to see what events come up.

    A couple of suggestions:
    "Fri, September 12, 2014 Halloween party dates pending" - I would probably change this to just say "HalloweenTime start (pending)" and omit any reference to the party, unless you've heard that they're going to start them earlier this year. Wouldn't want folks to start planning vacations thinking the Halloween party is going to start in early/mid-September.

    Might also consider tossing in some of the major holidays for LAUSD. I think that they're the biggest in the area and it looks like Disneyland uses that calendar to gauge when to block out the SoCal APs (at least spring break for LAUSD overlaps with the April blockout of the SoCal APs).

    Last year the D23 Expo was held in August. I didn't see dates for the 2014 Expo listed yet on the website.

    Thank you I will make the correction for the Halloween Parties.

    As for other LAUSD or other school days off... I live in Oregon and have no idea what dates should be added. Please give me a list. Either here or in a PM and I will try to keep it up dated.

    Definitely a "Work In Progress"

    I would expect UEA crowds to be a bit heavier than normal this year since the largest school district in Utah is taking their break at that time this year as well (the last few years fall break has been a week earlier for us).

    Are the dates I have above correct for Utah/UEA?

    Are there any other states (that head to DLR) where I can add school vacation dates to the list?

    Yes the UEA dates are correct. Thank you so much for putting this together. I am sure it will help many people.

    Here in Nevada we celebrate Nevada Day (the day Nevada was admitted into the Union) instead of Columbus Day. School is out on the last Friday of October which this year happens to be October 31st. I know that ALOT of Nevadans (myself included) go to DLR over this weekend.

    Nice list.

    If the D23 Event you are referring to is the D23 Expo, it is only held every other year, so not in 2014.

    The only other thing that really catches my eye at first look is "June 28, 2014 Summer Break Begins." I am not sure what set of dates you are basing this list on, but summertime at DLR starts sooner than that. I believe in 2013 it started Memorial Day weekend.

    HTH,

    I am confused as to why you list that Spring Break Season ends on March 30th. I know SB can happen at any given time in March and April, but most that I know (maybe it is a CA thing) have SB the week before or after Easter.

    Not sure how much this will affect crowds, but the AAP Practical Pediatrics CME Course is being held at the Grand Californian this year from June 20-22. My husband attends their events and when it is at a place like DL lots of doctors bring their families. I don't remember it being at DL before, just WDW so not sure how it will affect the crowds at DLR. :confused3 Just thought I would let you all know in case you are looking at dates for planning.

    What is UEA exactly? And Geemo, thank you for doing this!!!
    Utah Education Association. It's a teachers convention that closes most Utah schools. Although not every district closes, most do.

    It does help make October busy. I usually try and avoid booking my Halloween trips from Gay Days through the UEA.

    That's what I'm thinking too. Last year we went over Columbus day weekend, not realizing it was Columbus day weekend, duh! The party on a Friday was actually really nice, it was the Saturday that was so packed we couldn't believe it!
