Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – February 22 to 28, 2015

by on March 3, 2015

The increased crowd levels we are witnessing at Disneyland Resort are somewhat artificial. They do not necessarily represent an increase in attendance to the parks but rather a redistribution of crowds, especially at Disney California Adventure. Since the temporary closure of Condor Flats (Soarin’ and Grizzly River Run) we have seen a substantial increase in wait time across other parts of the park, especially at Monsters Inc and Tower of Terror. The higher crowd levels are mostly a result of these higher wait times.

Let’s look at how the crowd levels stacked up each day last week on the TouringPlans.com Disneyland Resort Crowd Report:

Universal Orlando Crowd Calendar Report – February 22 to 28, 2015

by on March 3, 2015

Last week the only crowd level that surprised us was Islands of Adventure on Saturday. Other than that, the Crowd Calendar predictions were within one index level every day. The parks were manageable every day with no crowd level reaching higher than a level ‘4’ on our scale – good news for guests of Universal Orlando Resort.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – February 22 to 28, 2015

by on March 3, 2015

The influx of guests to Walt Disney World during Presidents Week and Mardi Gras has ended and a lull of low to moderate crowds has taken its place. Unseasonably cool and wet weather is keeping wait times lower than expected for late February although the Crowd Calendar hit the mark most days last week. Wait time predictions tended to be too high.

Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – February 15 to 21, 2015

by on February 24, 2015

Except for Presidents Day Monday, crowds at Disneyland Resort edged one level higher than the Crowd Calendar predicted each day last week. The flow of crowds from day-to-day was exactly matched by the calendar’s predictions however.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – February 15 to 21, 2015

by on February 24, 2015

Last week, a rainy Tuesday kept Universal Orlando crowd levels at bay until Wednesday and Thursday when wait times spiked a couple levels higher than expected. This happens often when guests lose a vacation day to bad weather. The Crowd Calendar did correctly predict the flow of crowds throughout the week however, including the near-maximum crowds levels on Sunday and Monday as guests took advantage of the Presidents Day and Mardi Gras holidays.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – February 15 to 20, 2015

by on February 24, 2015

Presidents Day, Mardi Gras and the Princess Half Marathon all in the same week meant for some interesting crowds last week. A rainy Tuesday kept crowds lighter than expected but then as the clouds broke away Wednesday the crowds returned. Other than that, our calendar correctly predicted the flow of crowds throughout the week.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – February 8 to 14, 2015

by on February 17, 2015

Each day last week, crowds at Universal Orlando Resort came in at or below levels predicted by our Universal Crowd Calendar. The beginning of the week was particularly slower than expected but then crowds picked up by midweek and continued through the weekend.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – February 8 to 14, 2015

by on February 17, 2015

Crowds at Walt Disney World started off much lower than our crowd calendar predicted in the first part of the week but then we quickly saw an increase in-line with the predicted arrival of guests for Presidents Day weekend. The peak in attendance on Friday and Saturday is not due to a surge of guests arriving to celebrate Valentines Day but rather due to the combination of Presidents Day and Mardi Gras occurring the following week.

Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – February 8 to 14, 2015

by on February 16, 2015

As you can see from our chart of “What We Predicted” versus “What We Saw” although we only matched on one day, our Disneyland Crowd Calendar did a great job predicting the change in crowds from day to day last week. Weekends continue to be much more crowded than weekdays although Mondays and Fridays seem to be a mix of weekend-type crowds and weekday-type crowds.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – February 1 to 7, 2015

by on February 10, 2015

Although our Universal Crowd Calendar missed by one level some days last week it perfectly matched the shape of how crowds flowed day-to-day. Our wait time predictions tended to be a little high last week but not by much.
