Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – June 7 to 13, 2015

Share This!

Wait times at Walt Disney World last week stayed very close to the levels predicted by the Disney World Crowd Calendar, especially at Magic Kingdom. Last week was the first week in a while where all seven days saw crowd levels in the upper section of our scale, a sign that summer crowds are beginning. Disney Hollywood Studios continues to stand out as a park going through some crowd flow changes. Wait times there are spiking higher than history would suggest for this time of year which is likely due to the elimination of some high capacity attractions like American Idol Experience and Backlot Tour. With so few headliner attractions remaining, wait times are going up – especially when one of them breaks down as if often the case with Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.

Let’s look at how the crowd levels stacked up each day last week on the Disney World Crowd Calendar Report:

While our estimates for The Studios continued to be too low they were balanced by the low wait times at Epcot on Saturday. Meanwhile, Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom crowd levels continued to remain stable.
