How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

Last week, crowds were in line with what the Disney World Crowd Calendar predicted. Cold rain washed out most of Wednesday and Thursday last week but otherwise, crowds were within a point or two of what we expected. Epcot continues to have crowd levels lower than historical levels while Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom seem slightly busier than usual.

Let’s look at how the crowd levels stacked up each day last week:

How Crowded Was Universal Orlando Last Week?

Last week, crowds were within a point of what the Universal Crowd Calendar predicted most days except for a rain-soaked two day stretch mid week. Crowds tended to be down all week, never hitting a resort-wide level higher than what we predicted.

Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – January 24 to 30

How Crowded Was Disneyland Resort Last Week?

How Crowded Was Disneyland Resort Last Week?

Last week, Disneyland Resort saw wait times that tended higher than we would normally expect for late January, especially mid-week. The crowds were busier on the weekend than during the week, a trend that is most apparent during the off season and one that the Disneyland Crowd Calendar predicted well last week although crowd levels were one to two levels higher.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – January 17 to 23, 2016

How Crowded Was Universal Orlando Last Week?

How Crowded Was Universal Orlando Last Week?

Cool weather on Thursday and Friday kept the Universal Orlando parks at near-empty levels. Otherwise, the Universal Crowd Calendar did a great job predicting the flow of crowds last week from day to day. If anything, crowds were slightly higher than expected in the early part of the week and slightly less crowded than normal for the second part. Late January is off-season for Universal Orlando so we can expect crowds to be in the lower half of the crowd scale for most days as we saw last week.

How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

Cold weather has kept the Disney World theme parks less crowded than usual on several days this January. Last week we saw crowd levels one to two points lower than the Disney World Crowd Calendar predicted every day except for Saturday. This is good news for guests on vacation since the cool weather tends to keep local guests from visiting the parks and makes for lighter crowds overall.

How Crowded Was Disneyland Resort Last Week?

Last week, Disneyland Resort crowds followed the pattern predicted by the Disneyland Crowd Calendar with the notable exception of Sunday. Last year on the equivalent Sunday we saw Disneyland Resort hit a crowd level ‘2’ but this year the crowds were much busier. Wait times were up in general last week with each day about a point higher than the calendar predicted, resort-wide.

How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

Crowds at Walt Disney World were in line with what the Disney World Crowd Calendar predicted last week except for larger than expected crowds at Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Monday. We can set aside Friday’s crowd numbers because Central Florida was virtually shut down from severe weather warnings during the day. Kudos to those who braved the weather and went to the park anyway and experienced the lowest wait times of the week. Magic Kingdom was the busiest park of the week, never dipping below a level ‘5’ (except on Friday) and peaking at a crowd level ’10’ on Saturday as we headed into Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

How Crowded Was Universal Orlando Last Week?

Last week, crowds at Universal Orlando stayed in the lower half of our crowd level index except for Saturday as we headed into a long weekend. Monday and Tuesday’s higher than expected wait times were mostly at Universal Studios. Friday’s rock bottom wait times were due to the extreme weather that swept through Central Florida. The same storm brought tornadoes to other parts of Florida as well.

How Crowded Was Disneyland Last Week?

The graph of the crowd levels we saw at Disneyland last week looks less like a January crowd pattern and more like the track at Gadget’s Go Coaster! Up, down, and back up again. Rain was the culprit as Southern California was washed out for much of the day Tuesday through Thursday. Radiator Springs Racers, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Mad Tea Party, Alice in Wonderland and many others saw weather related closures last week.

How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

After a cold and rainy Sunday and two days of bounce-back crowds Disney World crowds settled down for the rest of last week. As is often the case in off-season the weather can affect day-to-day crowds. Last week marked the end of the busy holiday season but since Sunday was not a pleasant day it appears that some holiday level crowds spilled into Monday and Tuesday. Wait times varied very little over the resort between Wednesday and Saturday.
