With the recent release of Disney’s official park hours and schedules for July 2011 comes the accompanying update to the Crowd Calendar. The calendar now reflects the official hours.
July crowds can be some of the largest of the year. Next to Christmas and Easter, the crowds around July 4th edge out Thanksgiving for the most crowded holiday. The good news is that wait times at the parks are not as bad as the heavy crowds would indicate. Extended hours, summer rain storms and seasonal staff can keep wait times only slightly above average during some days in July. Touring Plans will be essential though, make sure to pick out plans that make the most sense for your group.
If you are travelling in July make sure to check the calendar for any changes. The calendar is subject to change and usually will a few times before July arrives. You can track changes for your trip by clicking on our Crowd Tracker. Visit any day on the calendar and click “Track this day”.
Think of the crowd calendar as an extended weather forecast. The closer we get to the date in question, the more information we have and the more accurate we can be.
