We’ve added hour-by-hour heat maps to our Disney World crowd calendars for mobile and tablet devices. It’s a useful feature if you park-hop during your trip and want to see what the crowds will be like when you arrive. It’s also useful if you want to see how fast crowds are going to increase during your day.
Here’s what a typical heat map looks like:
The number immediately to the right of the park is its overall crowd level for the day. Each block in the heat map represents one hour of the park’s schedule. Grey blocks indicate the park isn’t open; green blocks are hours with low crowds, and red blocks are high crowds.
Tap the “View Park Hours” button to see the park hours, Extra Magic Hours schedule, and special events:
Desktop Users If you’d like to see the heat map on your desktop screen, shrink your browser window so that it’s 900 pixels wide or less. You should see the standard Crowd Calendar presentation switch to heat maps, although we recommend you refresh your browser window at this new size to get the best experience.
