Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – June 14 to 20, 2015

Share This!

Lower than expected wait times at Epcot and to a lesser extent, Animal Kingdom, kept crowd levels lower than the Disney World Crowd Calendar predicted for the latter half of last week. After several weeks of unpredictable crowd levels at Disney Hollywood Studios last week seemed to be more in line with what the Disney World Crowd Calendar expected at that park. Meanwhile at Magic Kingdom the Disney World Crowd Calendar correctly predicted the crowd level within one index level every day last week.

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

    I’m wondering how the closure of Pirates of the Caribbean is affecting wait times and the “crowded feeling” at the Magic Kingdom. Does the closure of a large-capacity attraction like Pirates have a significant impact on touring plans? It seems there would be some kind of effect, with all those folks now having to go elsewhere in the park.
