    Len,
    I’m curious about crowd level predictions. I’m a subscriber to TouringPlans and have been watching the crowd calendar for a few months for my trip next week. I have two days at Hollywood Studios coming up. June 11th and 14th. Both days have no availability for park reservations, yet, June 11th’s predicted crowd level is a 3 for DHS and and June 14th’s predicted crowd level is a 7. How is that possible? Presumably the maximum capacity for DHS will be the same on June 11th as it is on June 14th unless Disney is going to up capacity limits significantly between those two days. How could June 14th be so much higher? Thanks for all the great content!

    Hey Scott!

    We probably overestimated that ‘7’. I believe we’re using pre-COVID wait times for June dates and beyond (and no COVID wait times), and adjusted standby wait times for the lack of FastPass+. So my guess is that previous June wait times were around that 3 to 7 range for those dates, and we adjusted.

    We’ve seen crowd levels vary between 3 and 7 within a few days: it happened at DHS on June 16-17, and June 30-July 1, 2019, for example.

    I think we also assumed an increase in park capacity limits for June, based on the relatively high WDW hotel occupancy rates that we’ve seen. And as of yesterday, park capacity limits had not gone up as much as we thought. (I’ve been told they’re not at 50%, so my guess is around 42%).

    My sense right now is that ‘7’ is too high for June 14, based on what we know right now. So I’d expect wait times to be lower than that. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Let me know if this isn’t clear, please.
