Disneyland Resort Crowd Report – October 26 to November 1, 2014

Share This!

Last week, our Disneyland crowd predictions performed very well, with only one prediction missing by more than 1 index level. Crowds were low during the week and busier on the weekends, as usual. We might have expected a busier Halloween crowd given that this year Halloween fell on a Friday but wait times remained reasonable.

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

Tuesdays numbers were within normal ranges although we missed Disneyland low and DCA high. Estimates were only slightly off though, we didn’t miss any major attraction by more than 10 minutes.

Happy Halloween at Disneyland! We sometimes see a spike in crowds on the day of Halloween so we may have expected a crowd level higher than a ‘4’ this year since it fell on Friday. Wait times were modest however, like 19 minutes at Big Thunder Mountain (predicted 16).

We hit the mark on both predictions Saturday thanks to attraction level estimates that were within 8 minutes at most headliners. Saturday saw the biggest crowds since the previous Sunday.
