Disneyland Resort Crowd Report – September 7 to 13, 2014

Share This!

September is usually the least crowded month at Disneyland Resort. Add in the extreme California heat experienced last week and you get some super low wait times. We also saw some higher than usual waits at rides more likely to cool you off like Splash Mountain and Grizzly River Run.

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

Disney California Adventure was a ‘1’ for the second day in a row on Tuesday. Early Entry pushed wait times at Disneyland Park a couple points higher than we predicted, mostly due to non-headliners like Astro Orbitor (18, predicted 9) and it’s a small world (11, predicted 5).

    So, if extreme heat is lowering crowd levels, once temps level out do you expect crowds to be higher than predicted or doesn’t the end of a heat wave usually affect crowd levels in CA?

      No Cassie, we expect crowd levels to match our predictions. We take weather (both historical are current forecasts) into account when we publish our crowd levels so it would have to be really outside the normal to see an impact.
