Disneyland Resort Crowd Report – December 21 to 27, 2014

Last week our resort level predictions matched what we saw every day, that is why we don’t see a blue line on the Overall Crowd Level Chart. Our park level predictions hit the mark most days as well with none missing by more than one index level. Both parks saw days with average wait times that hit a level ’10’ on our scale.

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