How Did The Crowd Calendar Do?

Last week, wait times were up at Disneyland Resort. Both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure saw crowds a step or two higher than usual. Tuesday and Wednesday the resort hit back-to-back level ’10’s on our scale, a feat usually reserved for holiday seasons like Christmas or Easter.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – July 19 to 25, 2015

How Did The Crowd Calendar Do?

How Did The Crowd Calendar Do?

Predicting crowd levels at Disney World is tough, even for seasoned veterans like us, so our goal for the Disney World Crowd Calendar is to get within one index level 90% of the time. Based on that, last week was a win each day overall. We saw the overall crowd level reach ‘8’ or ‘9’ every day last week except for Sunday when it hit a level ‘7’ (as predicted). This is all despite Epcot crowd levels being down a little last week with six out of seven days hitting a crowd level lower than what the Disney World Crowd Calendar expected.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – July 12 to 18, 2015

by on July 21, 2015

The Disney World Crowd Calendar did a great job last week. Among the 28 predictions for seven days worth of crowd levels at four parks, only four predictions missed by more than one index level. For each miss, crowds were lower than expected, a good sign for guests to Disney World this July.

Crowds were up at Disneyland Resort last week as the resort celebrated its 60th anniversary. However, on the day of the anniversary itself the park wide crowd level was a ‘7’ as predicted by the Disneyland Crowd Calendar. Wednesday and Thursday saw the peak waits of the week at both parks.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – July 5 to 11, 2015

by on July 16, 2015

Florida thunderstorms kept Universal Orlando Resort a little less crowded than normal during the first part of last week. However, for the first time in a few months, Universal crowds reached historical levels. Between Monday and Saturday last week we saw Universal wait times get closer to historical averages than we’ve seen in a while. Crowd levels at Universal Studios predicted by the Universal Crowd Calendar were within one index of what we observed every day except Sunday last week.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – July 5 to 11, 2015

by on July 16, 2015

Thundershowers kept crowds quite low for the days following the July 4th holiday last Saturday. Like New Year’s Day, the crowds following an evening celebration can be fairly light but this year they were especially light after July 4th. By mid-week we saw crowds return to expected levels. The Disney World Crowd Calendar predictions for Magic Kingdom continue to be excellent with only one day missing by more than one index level – on Saturday.

Last week, poor weather kept wait times lower than usual during the first few days of the week then crowds returned to normal for the second half. Disney California Adventure led the way in the latter half of the week with wait times 5 to 11 minutes higher than what we’ve seen during the same period in years passed.

Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – June 28 to July 4, 2015

by on July 8, 2015

Last week, the Disneyland Resort Crowd Level never reached above an ‘8’ on our scale, typical for the first week of July. At Disneyland Park however, we did see a very busy park on July 4th. The fluctuations in crowd levels day-to-day were subtle but Thursday stands out as the least crowded day of last week.
