Fast-forward to the week before or after Easter, and you’ll find reduced prices for that period (from the holiday through the week before Memorial Day). This is referred to as “normal” season, although it’s comparable to dates in early February and is quite cheap until mid-August.

Prices drop again a week before the start of school. This happens earlier on the hotel side of the equation than with park tickets, presumably because locals keep coming after tourists leave‚Äďand only they book hotel rooms.
