Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – March 1 to 7, 2015

Share This!

Last week, crowd levels were significantly lower than expected with the exception of Saturday, March 7. It may be that school districts originally planned to be out of session last week altered their schedule to account for lost days due to winter weather or it may just be a random case of lower crowds. Either way, guests who visited Disneyland Resort last week were treated to some of the lowest crowds we are likely to see this spring.

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

Monday’s level ‘1’ at Disney California Adventure is the lowest crowd level we’ve seen in a while at that park. The closing of Condor Flats has pushed wait times higher at other nearby attractions like Tower of Terror and Monsters, Inc. so a level ‘1’ is particularly rare these days.
