Disney has released their park hours and entertainment schedule for August and we have updated our disney world calendar to reflect the official schedule.
The latest crowd counts for early May have also come in and as some have suspected, our estimates for May seem high. There are possible explanations such as weather, reduced travel because of swine flu or overall reduced attendance. There is also a very slight chance that our estimates were just plain wrong, however we choose to not adopt that theory. Disney’s schedule for April was adjusted on the fly and our estimates were low for some days. We compensated in our estimates for May and June, expecting park hours to be adjusted again but that might not end up being the case.
Remember that our crowd calendar refers to the maximum posted wait time at the Magic Kingdom. With Space Mountain closed, the maximum wait time will be larger than normal as guests fill up queues at the other headliners. Although we might estimate crowds at level 7, 8 or 9, the actual experience of crowd size might be light. May and June will continue to be a good time of the year to visit the parks although wait times will be higher than normal at the Magic Kingdom.
As always, the crowd calendar is subject to change. Feel free to let us know when we’re wrong (or right) by sharing with us the wait times you observe in the Theme Parks. Send us Fastpass times or Standby times by for any Theme Park while you visit.
Things we need to know:
- What Park is it?
- What Attraction is it?
- What time of day is it?
- What is the standby time (or Fastpass window time)?
Thanks and happy touring!
