Last week we reported that the Disney World Crowd Calendar will see some crowd levels updated in the coming days. We have reviewed the first run of updates but feel that some of Disney’s park hours in December are likely to change so we are re-running our crowd level predictions with projected park hours rather than those currently listed. Crowd levels in November and December will likely see an average rise of one crowd level, especially at Magic Kingdom. There are some dates in 2016 that may see some crowd level reductions as well.
We also reported today that Disney Park attendance was up an unprecedented 15% last quarter. This report sheds some light on the remarkable spikes in wait times that we have seen this fall. Whether these increases will continue during the rest of 2015 and into the new year is yet to be seen. Interestingly, this week’s wait times are showing much more similarity to what we saw during the same week in 2014 than what we have seen in the last few months. Here is an early preview of this week’s Disney World Crowd Report.
Wait times so far this week are flat compared to what we have seen during the same week in years passed. Jersey Week continues this weekend so it will be interesting to see if wait times spike or remain within range of what the calendar predicted.
