In 2014, Disboard poster Geemo started a thread that listed the major conventions, events, and school breaks at or near DLR. This is a continuation of that thread, but for 2015!

This is NOT an official Calendar, for reference only. This is also not an all inclusive list, but I will do my best to keep it up to date. Please let me know if you hear of anything to add to the list.

Update (1/18/15): I have decided to split out the school breaks. There are so many different school districts and it is difficult to identify which districts may or may not have a significant impact on DLR. So, school breaks are now tracked separately in this post.

Mickey's Halloween Party, 2015
Party dates were announced on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 via the Disney Parks Blog. Tickets go on sale to DLR Annual Passholders, Disney Visa Card holders, and DVC members on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 and to the general public on Wednesday, July 29, 2015. The dates when the MHP tickets sold out in 2014 were tracked in this post in the HalloweenTime SuperThread.

Disclaimer: Even if the date is listed as sold out online, it is possible that tickets may still be available via the phone or in person at the ticket booths (this occurred in 2014, but it is not known if it'll happen again in 2015). A limited number of tickets may also be available for "day of" purchase for onsite hotel guests, but it is not known if that will be the case again this year.

It also looks like they stop selling tickets to MHP online on the day of the event. So if you want to purchase tickets online, be sure to buy them at least one day in advance.

Notes
This list does not include all of the conventions/events scheduled at the Anaheim Convention Center. It is only a partial listing. A full listing is available on the Anaheim Convention Center Calendar.
http://www.anaheimconventioncenter.com/eventCalendar.aspx

Tom Bell maintains a list of Disneyland Events on wdwinfo.
http://www.wdwinfo.com/disneyland/events.html

There are a number of unofficial park days that happen throughout the year. Some are fairly large and can impact park crowds (e.g., Gay Days), while others are probably fairly small and most guests won't notice that they are occurring.

*Starred events have historically began/occurred in that month, but the dates for 2015 have not yet been announced.

    Added. :)

    This looks great! Just one correction though... Superbowl is Sunday, Feb. 1st.
    Typo! Thanks, I've fixed it. :thumbsup2

    When is the Arizona Fall break that I hear so many people talk about? When is the Nevada break?
    I'm hoping that someone from Arizona and Nevada can chime in with those breaks. Likewise, when it's announced, hopefully someone from Utah can provide info about the UEA break. Last year's thread included information on the Spring Recesses for Mesa (AZ), Vancouver (B.C.), Oregon, and Seattle (WA). Fall recesses for Arizona and UEA were also included. I'm not sure how many school recesses will be included this year; it'll depend on what people mention.

    I would be remiss if I didn't include a link to Tom Bell's Events page on The DIS (he posted it in Geemo's 2014 thread, and I know he spends time trying to keep it updated) -- http://www.wdwinfo.com/disneyland/events.html.


    Also, for dates that are specifically relevant to the Halloween Time season, I will be updating this "Dates/Days/Events to Remember" post when we get into 2015 -- http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=51326911&postcount=2.


    Likewise, even though it will be in a different/new thread, I will be updating this "Days/Dates/Events to Remember" post for the Holiday Season when we get into 2015 -- http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=50372209&postcount=2.

    Here's some 2015 info from AZ:

    Mesa (largest school district), Gilbert, and Chandler are probably the largest DLR users in the state.

    Spring Break:

    Mesa: March 16-20
    Gilbert: March 9-13
    Chandler (2wks): March 9-20

    Fall Break:

    Mesa: Oct. 12-16
    Gilbert: Oct. 12-16
    Chandler (2wks): Sept. 28 - Oct. 9

    The other Phoenix-area schools are usually close to the same 2-3 week range.

    Thanks!

    I know -- I saw that -- but it is the specific Halloween and Holiday Dates posts (for 2015) that will be relevant to this thread.
    Okay...I see; it sounded like you thought I didn't include the links, and I didn't want you to think that! After all, I said I would include them! :) Added a note about Post #2 to the SuperThread links. I'll update the links in Post #1 if there is a new Christmas or Halloween thread.

    :thumbsup2It's good to know those dates -- and the dates of the other neighboring states' school breaks -- because I would imagine that a lot of people don't even consider that out-of-state school breaks will affect crowds in DL. I know that, prior to finding this board years ago, I never thought about school breaks outside of California impacting Disneyland crowds. I had never heard of Utah's UEA. The more I began reading various posts and comments about it, I realized I had a lot to learn! It made sense when I thought about it more -- certainly not all people in the U.S. are headed to WDW, and it is reasonable to assume that a lot of people from nearby states would head to the west coast for their Disney fix.

    Utah's UEA break is Oct 15-16, 2015. Many districts tack on a couple vacation days before or after those dates. Hope that helps!

    Scottsdale AZ and the Dysart district in AZ have Fall Break October 12-16 as well. Both are very good size districts.

    We have reservations to be there May 31st so I'm curious what Bats Day is. Sounds like a ball game promotion - everyone gets a free bat, but I have a feeling odds aren't with that being the answer :)

    Sorry, not related to a ball game. It's could also be called/described as Goth Day in the park.

    Thanks. We'll be there with our 5 year old DS. Any tips on crowds/best ways to handle the parks that day? Do they primarily go to DL so that would be a good CA day?

    Most Oregon Schools have Spring Break the full week of March 23rd. The last day of school (Molalla River Dist) for the year is June 9th.

    To avoid the major spring break crowd, I take the grandkids when there are three NO School days tied in with a weekend the first of March. This year that's March 4, 5 & 6. I believe it's a time set aside for Parent-Teacher conferences.
