Maybe Santa brought a few families an early Christmas vacation.
Crowds this week have been higher than expected, much more than the 7s we predicted on the Crowd Calendar. We’re seeing some posted wait times at popular attractions like Space Mountain and Toy Story Midway Mania in the mid-hundreds. If you are in the parks and experiencing these types of crowds let us know. Are these peak wait times the result of massive crowds or conditions with the attractions themselves? We’d like to hear.
It may be that the holiday festivities (Holiday Wishes, Holiday Parades, etc.) are bringing out the locals in large numbers. We historically don’t see a spike in wait times until the 24th of December so this week’s wait times have caught us off guard. We’re in the process of updating the Crowd Calendar and so it will be likely that the estimates for the next few days will go up.
Crowd Calendar updated December 21st. Crowds in the parks are stable but shut downs at Space Mountain are driving wait times artificially high. Our advice is to use Fastpass whenever possible for Spac Mountain since it is shutting down an average of 1-2 times a day.
