February 2021 – WDW Crowd Calendar Update

Share This!

Crowds have mostly been low so far for 2021. We expect the week of President’s Day and Mardi Gras will be the busiest week of the year. Before the pandemic, when these two holidays fall on the same week we would see 9s and 10s. Crowds will not be that high. Disney has extended park hours once or twice for each day between February 13 and 21.


Disney’s Park Pass reservation system is another indicator that crowds will be higher. The table below shows the number of days since February 8, that Park Pass reservations were no longer were available. Hollywood Studios typically runs out of Park Passes the fastest. The park has a lower capacity and many people make extra Park Pass reservations for Hollywood Studios to give themselves multiple changes to get a Boarding Group for Rise of the Resistance. If people do not get a Boarding Group at 7 am, they will change their Park Pass reservation and try again on a different day to get a Boarding Group.

The first half of the week will be more crowded than the second half. EPCOT is typically busier on the weekends. With the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts ending on February 22, the weekends will be slightly busier as it will be the last chance for locals to visit the festival.

We try to avoid making last-minute changes to the Crowd Calendar. (Sorry!) We would rather guests be prepared than surprised when they show up at the parks. Remember, arriving early and using a Touring Plan will save you more time than just picking a park with a low crowd level.

By helping continue to reach the most accurate crowd level predictions, Steve finally found a way to meld his training in statistical analysis with a lifelong passion for Disney. He first visited the Magic Kingdom in 1972, just a few months after it opened. Now he enjoys frequent trips with his two kids. At age four his son insisted on wearing cowboy boots to reach the height requirement for Test Track, and his daughter believes that a smoked turkey leg and Dole Whip make a perfectly balanced meal. Even though she doesn't quite get it, Steve's wife is supportive of his Disney activities.
