This Crowd Calendar update is a bit of fine-tuning to the Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando.
Walt Disney World
Most of the changes in this update are to EPCOT. For the October update, we were seeing a strong pattern where weekdays had very low crowds and weekends had very high crowds. It appears that the secret is out and more people switched their EPCOT days to weekdays. Most of the 1s that EPCOT had, are now 2s and 3s. Weekdays still have lower crowds than the weekend at EPCOT.
Animal Kingdom is the only park with a plethora of 1s.
October 1, 2021, will be Disney World’s 50th anniversary. We expect that there will be a bump in crowds for this historic day. Disney will be celebrating their 50th anniversary for 12-18 months, so don’t feel left out if you avoid the first weekend of October 2021.
