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

Last week, the crowds we observed at Disneyland Resort closely followed what was predicted by the Disneyland Crowd Calendar with the exception of a cool, rainy Sunday. Disneyland crowds came in a point or two higher than Disney California Adventure most days meaning that the flagship park was more crowded relative to what we see historically than the newer park.

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

The cool rain that hit Anaheim on Sunday morning was enough to keep wait times very low at both Disneyland Parks. Tower of Terror averaged only 18 minutes and California Screamin’ averaged only 8. Disneyland wasn’t much busier with average waits like 6 minutes at Mr Toad’s Wild Ride and 11 minutes at Haunted Mansion.

Not surprisingly, Saturday’s crowds were the busiest of the week. Even though Saturdays are blocked out to many annual passholders, Saturdays are the busiest day of the week, especially in the off-season.
