Park Recommendations Affected By Crowd Calendar 4 Conversion

Share This!

Our team is working hard to resolve issues that arose during conversion to Crowd Calendar 4. One of the results is that during this transition, the Park Recommendations listed on the calendar may not be consistent with the park crowd levels. Jennifer, a subscriber from Rockford, MI noticed the issue during the dates of her April trip.


I’m confused on your crowd tracker for April 2014. I’ve been using as it my guide for planning and making dining reservations for spring break.  Something seems amiss to me!  Crowd numbers have changed and recommendations seem ‘off’.  For example, Saturday, April 5 suddenly has three parks at crowd level 5 and Epcot crowd level 8. Your recommended park that day is Epcot!?!  Is this correct, or are you experiencing a glitch in your system?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes, it is a glitch. We suggested Jennifer avoid Epcot and choose one of the other parks listed at ‘5’. While we work through the conversion to Crowd Calendar 4, you may notice these types of discrepancies. Our suggestion is to focus on the park levels and ignore the park recommendations, for now. Once we solve the issues we will completely convert to the new calendar.

For further information on how to use the park levels to choose which park to visit, check out our Park Recommendations page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. As always, contact us here for questions about the crowd calendar and park recommendations.
