How Did the Disneyland Crowd Calendar Do Last Week?

Last week at Disneyland crowds followed the pattern expected by the Disneyland Crowd Calendar except for Monday when we saw very high crowd levels at both parks. Not just higher than usual for Labor Day but among the highest crowds we will likely see until December. Wait times quickly settled on Tuesday and stayed manageable for the rest of the week.

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

Wait times were up on Sunday as well, a trend we have seen on the previous two Sundays, the unofficial last weekends of the Summer. This may be an indication that weekend crowds in September may be a little higher than usual.

Monday was an anomaly. Historically, crowds on Labor Day Monday are manageable and among the lowest crowds that we see on any national holiday throughout the year. This year was an exception with average wait times like 74 minutes at Grizzly River Run and 47 at Indiana Jones Adventure.

Tuesday we saw wait time averages much lower than what we saw the day before. The Labor Day crowds seem to be short-lived, thankfully for Disneyland guests. Grizzly River Run averaged 27 minutes and Indiana Jones Adventure 24 minutes, by comparison.

Crowd levels on Wednesday flipped-flopped from the levels we saw one day before. This time Disneyland was a ‘2’ and Disney California Adventure hit a level ‘4’ thanks to average waits like 61 minutes at Radiator Springs Racers.
