Disney California Adventure saw wait times slightly higher than expected on Sunday mostly due to average waits like 48 minutes at Tower of Terror and 60 minutes at Grizzly River Run. Radiator Springs was a 90 minute average wait, only a few minutes lower than the 99 minutes predicted by the Disneyland Crowd Calendar.

Thursday’s crowds held steady at level ‘9’s, a surprise to the Disneyland Crowd Calendar. We usually see large crowds during the week in summer that taper off by the weekend as out of town guests begin to head home. Last week, crowds remained right through Saturday.

Saturday is usually the most popular travel day for out of town guests so last Saturday’s crowds seem to be more influenced by local visitors. We have not seen both parks hit a level at or above ‘8’ on a Saturday in quite some time.
