Disney World Crowd Calendar Report
How Crowded Was Disney World Last Week?

Crowds at Walt Disney World were very close to what the Disney World Crowd Calendar predicted between June 12 and 18. The calendar correctly predicted that midweek crowds would be larger than those on the weekend. Magic Kingdom crowds led the way with every day at a crowd level ‘8’ or higher except for Saturday (6). Animal Kingdom was the least crowded park of the week after dipping to a level ‘3’ on Friday.

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

    We usually visit for Easter week but this year we couldn’t make it then. We were at MK on Sat, 6/18, and the crowds felt very light. Maybe because we are used to Easter crowd levels. After the 4pm storm, while we had dinner at BOG, the crowd thinned even more. Had a touring plan & low crowds made for a great day.
