How Crowded Was Disneyland Last Week?
How Crowded Was Disneyland Last Week?

Last week we saw wait times at both Disneyland parks that matched closely what the Disneyland Crowd Calendar predicted. Only on Tuesday did the Disneyland Crowd Calendar miss by more than one index point and that was entirely due to larger than expected waits at Disneyland Park. Disney California Adventure was a ‘3’ as predicted on Tuesday.

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

Midweek crowds are often much lighter than weekend crowds, especially in the off-season. This was certainly true on Tuesday with both parks dropping several points lower than what we saw only a few days earlier.
