Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – July 12 to 18, 2015

by on July 21, 2015

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 12 to 18, 2015

by on July 21, 2015

Last week Universal Orlando parks saw crowds that matched typical summer levels. The Universal Crowd Calendar predicted crowd levels in the range of ‘6’ through ‘9’ which ended up being accurate except for Sunday when Islands of Adventure dipped to a level ‘5’.

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.

Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – July 5 to 11, 2015

by on July 16, 2015

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.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – June 28 to July 4, 2015

by on July 8, 2015

The Magic Kingdom Crowd Calendar continued a remarkable streak of accuracy last week. Between June 21 and July 4, 2015 the crowd level at Magic Kingdom was exactly as predicted by the Crowd Calendar with the exception of only four days and three of those missed by only one level.  Meanwhile, crowd levels at the other three parks were down slightly (on average). Independence Day is one day of the year where the Resort Crowd Level is a little misleading. While Magic Kingdom hosted near capacity crowds, Animal Kingdom had wait times among the lowest of the year so the resort crowd level was a ‘6’. In reality, we still consider July 4th to be one the busiest days of the year even though the majority of the crowds are focused at Magic Kingdom and Epcot.

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

by on July 8, 2015

Last week, Universal Orlando Resort continued to lag behind historical levels for wait times at its two parks. Despite being the first week where nearly all schools out of of session, the crowd levels at Universal Parks stayed below a level ‘8’ all week.

Universal Crowd Calendar Report – June 21 to 27, 2015

by on June 30, 2015

The end of June is historically a busy time at Universal Orlando with the end of school bringing an influx of teens and ‘tweens to experience Universals thrills but this year’s crowds fell well short of what have seen in year’s past. The Universal Crowd Calendar predictions for the second half of the week were close to what we observed but not so much on Monday through Wednesday.

Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – June 21 to 27, 2015

by on June 30, 2015

Last week crowds at Disney World dipped a little lower than expected on Monday and Tuesday thanks to lower waits at Epcot and Animal Kingdom but otherwise followed the curve predicted by the Disney World Crowd Calendar. That curve itself is interesting because it shows that weekends tend to be less busy than weekdays which is not usually the case other times of the year. It is summer now and that means family vacations are not determined by school schedules since most schools are not in session. Travellers tend to use Saturday and Sunday as travel days which means the parks are busier during the week.
