Disneyland Crowd Calendar Report – April 12 to 18, 2015

Share This!

Last week, the Disneyland Crowd Calendar expected wait times to be higher than they actually were. This is an indication that the Post-Easter / Spring Break Season may have arrived a week earlier than history would suggest. The wait times at both parks historically are low once the Easter and Spring Break seasons come to a close so this is a good sign for guests to the parks between now and Memorial Day.

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

This week we expect wait times patterns to follow off-season levels. That means, Easter is over, Spring Break is over and weekdays will be less crowded than weekends. This should continue through Memorial Day in May.
