Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – June 21 to 27, 2015

Last week, the Disneyland Crowd Calendar predicted larger crowds early then lower crowds by the weekend but in fact we saw flat crowd levels most of the week. Crowds were slightly above the yearly average although we did see¬†one level ‘4’ and one level ‘9’. Otherwise, crowds stayed in the ‘6’ to ‘8’ range, typical for this time of year. Disneyland crowds were fairly stable day-to-day (except for Saturday) while Disney California Adventure fluctuated quite a bit.

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

Same story on Tuesday – DCA wait times were lower than expected while Disneyland stayed at a level ‘8’ as expected. The lower wait times at Disney California Adventure seem to be driven by attractions like California Screamin (15 minutes, predicted 24) and Radiator Springs Racers (73, predicted 112).
