Disney World Crowd Calendar Report – July 12 to 18, 2015

Share This!

The Disney World Crowd Calendar did a great job last week. Among the 28 predictions for seven days worth of crowd levels at four parks, only four predictions missed by more than one index level. For each miss, crowds were lower than expected, a good sign for guests to Disney World this July.

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

Epcot and Animal Kingdom dragged down the resort wide crowd level on Sunday. All four parks ended up with crowd levels slightly above average. That means average waits like 60 minutes at Peter Pan’s Flight, 57 at Soarin’, 74 at Toy Story Midway Mania and 24 minutes at Dinosaur.

Animal Kingdom at a level ‘6’ was the only surprise on Thursday. Average wait times like 25 minutes at Kilimanjaro Safaris and 16 at Primeval Whirl pulled the park wide level lower than expected even though the other headliners had averages in the ‘7’ to ‘9’ range.
