How Did The Disneland Crowd Calendar Do Last Week?
How Did The Disneyland Crowd Calendar Do Last Week?

Last week, the Disneyland Crowd Calendar fared well with its predictions except for two spikes that we observed on Wednesday and Friday. Friday’s crowd level ‘9’ at Disneyland Park came out of nowhere. Last year on the equivalent day we saw a crowd level ‘3’ at that park. Other than Friday, crowds at both parks were moderate most of the week despite being slightly higher than predicted.

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

At Disney California Adventure we saw reasonable averages like 34 minutes at Toy Story Midway Mania and 24 at Soarin’ Over California.

October has come to an end so Halloween decorations will soon make way for Christmas ones at Disneyland Resort. Crowds tend to be very manageable in November until we see the Thanksgiving rush at the end of the month.

    It will be interesting to see the wait time data now that the Halloween parties have ended. Perhaps things will come back to normal?
