Disneyland Resort Crowd Report – August 24 to 30, 2014

Share This!

Welcome to the Disneyland Resort Crowd Report! Here we take a look at how our crowd predictions performed the previous week and take a brief look at the week to come.

Last week, no park reached wait times higher than a level ‘5’ on our scale and most days stayed around a ‘2’ or ‘3’. That means posted wait times averaged 10 to 30 minutes at most attractions. We are still seeing some attention at the newly refurbished Alice in Wonderland. If that is an important part of your trip to Disneyland you may want to move that attraction earlier in your touring plan.

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