Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend.

Refurb season begins this week so expect lighter crowds. Things will pick up as we approach Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and then jumped to the 80s during the holiday weekend.

Parking: Downtown Disney will charge a flat $30 fee starting at 5pm upon entry. Guests will validation from restaurants or AMC Theaters will be refunded if they present their parking ticket at the valet booth. 

FYI: Expect the crowds to get busier and busier as the day progresses, as NYE is probably the most crowded day in the entire year.  For the midnight countdown, many people camp out throughout the entire day, so if you are planning to do this, I would recommend getting to the park early. But due to park operations, there will be a time a designated time where guests can start waiting for the countdown in select locations.  - Admin Dec 30, 2015 11:53AM
unFORECAST for the week of Dec 7, 2015
Crowds have been lighter since Thanksgiving. Tuesdays-Thursdays remain the "less-busy" days, but that won't last for long. As we approach Christmas, and the New Year Celebration, crowds will increase as most passholders make the final trip of the year before they're blocked (starting the 18-19th). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity). Important note when comparing last year's Crowd Index: we've seen larger crowds on average this year due to the 60th Celebration activities.

Now that we've made it through Halloween, we may get few weeks of lighter crowds. This week, the Disneyland Resort reverts to regular "off season" hours (DL closing at 9pm, DCA closing at 8pm during the week). This might be your chance to hit the Parks minus the crazy crowds before the Christmas season begins on November 13. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity).

There's probably no crowd relief in sight until after Halloween. Even on a Monday, with short Halloween Party hours, Space Mountain is sitting at a 70min wait at 5pm. Since the Halloween parties began, Sunday has been the busiest day, followed by Saturday, and Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity).

Mickey's Halloween Party has an interesting effect on crowd levels. This week, Disneyland will close early on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to host the party. Disneyland Park crowds are usually lighter on party days (with the exception of Friday). Last weekend was very busy, while this Monday was not. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity).

Disneyland is open later this week to accomodate bigger crowds. It hasn't been terribly busy so far this week (Crowd Index average in the low 70s), but the crowds should increase as we move into the weekend. High temps usually keep the Annual Passholders away, so that should play a factor this week. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the mid 60s (approx 65% capacity). To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

Halloween Time is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort! The weekend was extremely busy as people came in droves to see the Fall makeover of the Parks. Today (Monday) was also busy (Crowd Index in the mid-80s) due to typical weekend carryover. This week should be busier than last week, due to the Halloween Time transformation (Tues-Thu should be the least crowded). Beware: this could be the last week of light crowds until after Halloween (remember Disneyland will close at 6pm on several nights starting at the end of the month through Halloween for the Halloween parties). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity). To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

Halloween Time at Disneyland officially begins this Friday, Sept 11! Expect light crowds leading up to Friday, and then get ready for a busy weekend. Disneyland closes early on Thursday for the annual Cast Member Service Celebration--normal nighttime shows will not happen on Thursday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the 50s (approx 50% capacity) -- which means it was slow. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week.

Expect bigger crowds this week with cooler weather and more passholders back in the Park. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity).

More hot weather coming to the Disneyland Resort this Wednesday. Temperatures should hit 95 degrees (which is HOT for Anaheim). Higher temps didn't stop people from visiting last week, however, as the MouseWait Crowd Index was mid to high 80s all week. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity), which is light for summer crowds. We expect this week to be less crowded than last week, especially with the heat on the way, however it should pick up a great deal heading into the weekend with the D23 Convention starting on Friday. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM

However, this year we are predicting mid-80s which means it should be busier.

Since the 24-hour day in May, the Parks have been slow. This may be due to the heat, or due to graduation season. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), the smaller crowds are in line with what we saw last year. Expect more of the same this week (in the 70s). If we get a break from the heat for some reason, the Parks could become substantially busier. We expect Friday and Sunday to be the busiest days.

SoCal Select passes are now blocked for the Summer, which should thin out the crowds a bit. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index, last year/this week was relatively slow (mid 70s). We expect this year to be busier due to the new shows (Paint the Night and Disneyland Forever), so look for crowds in the 80s this week. SoCal passes will be blocked for the Summer starting June 26 (also blocked out June 17-20). Remember, just because places like Main Street and Tomorrowland seem packed, it doesn't mean the Park is at a higher capacity. Check MouseWait for real-time Crowd Index updates and wait times.

This Friday marks the first day of the SoCal Select blockouts (that last through the end of Summer). Expect decent crowds this week--our Historical Crowd Index shows high-70s. The Parks are on late hours through the end of Summer and have selectively extended hours in DCA (Sunday and tonight). Things should ramp up on Friday and it should be a busy weekend. We are still at pre-Summer crowd levels, so now is the time to go if you want to beat the big crowds this Summer.

Crowd Prediction: Expect this week to be moderately quiet to busy in both parks, even with the shorter park hours.

CROWD PREDICTION: Should be a light week. Please note that Disneyland Park closes at 7:30pm Wednesday and Thursday to prepare for the 60th Anniversary. Historical Crowd Index is in the 70s, but it could be lighter than that due to two short hour days.

CROWD PREDICTION: Back to short hours this week, and based on our Historical Crowd Index, we see mid-70s with crowds decreasing through the end of the month. There is also a chance of rain toward the end of the week which could throw a wrench in things. Friday and Sunday's have been the busiest days, but rain on Friday could cause the crowds to be significantly less. Have a great weekend! - Admin Apr 21, 2015 11:28AM

CROWD PREDICTIONS: Spring Break is in full swing so brace yourself for big crowds. Looking back at our historical Crowd Index, this week last year was in the 80s (80% average capacity). However, the crowds appear to be bigger this year, so we're predicting high 80s on the MouseWait Crowd Index. Look for the Crowd index to be at 85-90+ this week as it increases toward the weekend. 

UPDATE: Even though it's crowded, wait times for most attractions are manageable and less than what we usually see in May.

This Thursday, the Resort will celebrate Thanksgiving by offering many turkey-themed meals around the parks and resort hotel restaurants. For more info, contact Disney Dining. 

unForecast Prediction: With more and more schools having this week off, expect it to be busy Monday-Wednesday during the week. For Thanksgiving Day, if history repeats itself again, expect it to not be quite busy during the morning, and then get quieter as the night progresses as a lot of people go home to eat and celebrate. Again, that's what has happened in the past. On Friday, expect both parks to be very busy as it can be one of the most busiest days of the year, but all APs are blocked out expect Premium/Premiere. And for the weekend, expect it to be busy like earlier in the week. Overall, expect CIs to be in the low 70s to low 90s this week for both parks, they'll dip down for Thanksgiving Day, then spike back up for the weekend. 

Have a great Thankgiving MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Nov 24, 2014 1:55PM

With Christmas Time in full gear, expect it to be busy again this weekend as the crowds start to show up for the Thanksgiving week holiday.

unForecast Crowd Prediction:  Expect it to be busy this Monday and Tuesday as it is a holiday week (Veterans Day). Expect CIs to be in the 70s-80s. After Tuesday, it might be slow on Wednesday, but pick up again on Thursday through the weekend as it is the start of Christmas, expecting CIs to be in the 70s-80s again.

This weekend, Disneyland will film its annual "Christmas Day Parade" for ABC. If the schedule follows from the previous years, Saturday will be the parade and Sunday will be the musical performances. The schedule and performers are not usually announced until the day of the filming. 

Also this Friday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade will debut at 3pm and 5:45pm (notice the time changes), along with "Believe in Holiday Magic" fireworks at 9:25pm (Friday-Sunday).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week with CI in the 50-60s, but as the weekend comes with the nice weather and hints of Christmas starting, expect the crowds to pick up to CIs in the 70s-80s. If you're planning on coming to the park on Saturday morning, be aware that it will be crowded along the parade route and Main Street as the Christmas Day parade filming will be taking place. 

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 27, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 9pm-11pm (Saturday), 8am-11pm (Sunday).

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday/Wednesday/Friday this week. Notice the early park closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 9am-9pm (Saturday), 8am-9pm (Sunday)

Attraction Closures: "it's a small world" is closed until November 7, in order to install the Christmas overlay. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat will be down until November 29. 

This week is the last week of Halloween Time at the Resort! After Friday, the parks will be a "transition" period between Halloween Time and Christmas Time, which officially starts on November 13. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week, even though it is the last week of Halloween Time. During this last month, we've seen it normally quieter on the days where there is a MHP that night, but the crowd level pick up around 3-4pm, during the "mix-in" time. With Halloween being on a Friday this year, it will be interesting how crowded DCA will be at night. Normally during Halloween Party nights, DCA can get very crowded, with Crowd Indexes around 90+. Overall, expect the crowds to be quiet to moderately quiet (CIs in the 50-70s at DL, and 40-60 in DCA). Weekends though are hard to predict this week due to the end of Halloween Time.

Have a great week!

Update for Monday, October 20, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-9pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday). 

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of this week. Take note of the early closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" has closed for the Christmas overlay. Expect it to open on November 7. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat is still closed for its refurbishment, opening on November 29. On the DCA side, the Boudin Bakery Tour has closed for a refurbishment from Tuesday, October 21 and will reopen on January 16, 2015. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Over the last few weeks, we've seen that when there isn't a Halloween Party in Disneyland Park, that day is more crowded than those days with a Halloween Party. I'm going to say that Tuesday and Thursday of this week will be the most crowded weekdays (Crowd Index between 70-85). On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA as Disneyland Park hosts another MHP (we saw a crowd index of 90+ there on Friday night). The weekends should be busy again as it is the last full weekend of Halloween Time at the Resort.

Have a great week!

DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday), 8am-8pm (Tuesday), 9am-8pm (Wednesday, Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday, Sunday).

Entertainment Notes: Fantasmic will be shown on an extra day this week, Monday at 9pm and 10:30pm.

unForcast Crowd Prediciton: Expect it to be a little busy this Monday as it is a holiday (Columbus Day) and the park is open later than normal. During the week, expect it to be quiet for most of the day, until around 3-4pm, when the Halloween Party crowds start to arrive.  Like every Friday we've seen in October so far, expect it to be very busy in DCA on Friday night while DL hosts another Halloween Party. 

Have a great week!

For more details, look under Admin's posts and/or click on the tag "5th Birthday Bash". 

This Sunday, 10/12, the Resort will host its annual CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) Walk in the morning. If you are planning to come to the park early that day, be aware that the park does open later than usual for a Sunday morning. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Overall, expect it to be moderately quiet again this week. With having three Mickey's Halloween Parties this week, expect the crowds to pick up around 3pm-4pm as the party crowd comes in, part of the "mix-in" time. On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA while the Halloween Party is going on in Disneyland Park. And on Sunday, the crowds may pick up after the CHOC walk. If possible, I would take advantage of Thursday night with Disneyland Park open late, until 11pm.

Have a great week and Happy Birthday MW!

 unForcast Crown Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week as both parks close at 8pm, and even earlier on other days too. Friday though, will be crowded as it is the first Mickey's Halloween Party.  Because Disneyland is closed, expect it to be very crowded in DCA as it will be open later than normal that night.

Reminder that Mickey's Halloween Party starts on Friday, September 26, in which Disneyland Park will close early for the private event. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: With it being very hot at the parks this week and with both parks closing early, expect both parks to be quiet as the resort is in "non-peak" season.  As we get into the weekend, the temperature is supposed to go back to normal, which will cause the crowds to increase by Friday and Saturday.

Also, "Legends of Frontierland" was extended and will stick around a little longer. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be crowded on Monday as it is Labor Day and all APs are open, but it is also a work/school night, so expect the crowds to decrease by the later afternoon/night. For the rest of the week, expect it to be low to moderate crowds as most schools have started and both parks closing earlier for this short "non-peak" season. Reminder that Halloween Time at the Resort officially starts on Friday, September 12!

Have a great week MWers! 



- BaseballMickey_CM Aug 31, 2014 11:28PM
Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:

Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).

FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month.  - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  616.2 #331 5:39PM

What does that mean for Sundays then? Sundays show all APs blocked except Premium - disneymomma87  216.5 #1778 8:05PM
Deluxe is only blocked this Sunday, probably because of the 4th. But So Cal are blocked for a while, so Sundays may not be as busy. But summer crowds will make up for that.  - redsoxcarlos  2537.2 #56 8:15PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM
unFORECAST for the week of Jan 11, 2016
Refurb season begins this week so expect lighter crowds. Things will pick up as we approach Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and then jumped to the 80s during the holiday weekend.

Parking: Downtown Disney will charge a flat $30 fee starting at 5pm upon entry. Guests will validation from restaurants or AMC Theaters will be refunded if they present their parking ticket at the valet booth. 

FYI: Expect the crowds to get busier and busier as the day progresses, as NYE is probably the most crowded day in the entire year.  For the midnight countdown, many people camp out throughout the entire day, so if you are planning to do this, I would recommend getting to the park early. But due to park operations, there will be a time a designated time where guests can start waiting for the countdown in select locations.  - Admin Dec 30, 2015 11:53AM

Crowds have been lighter since Thanksgiving. Tuesdays-Thursdays remain the "less-busy" days, but that won't last for long. As we approach Christmas, and the New Year Celebration, crowds will increase as most passholders make the final trip of the year before they're blocked (starting the 18-19th). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity).

Halloween Time is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort! The weekend was extremely busy as people came in droves to see the Fall makeover of the Parks. Today (Monday) was also busy (Crowd Index in the mid-80s) due to typical weekend carryover. This week should be busier than last week, due to the Halloween Time transformation (Tues-Thu should be the least crowded). Beware: this could be the last week of light crowds until after Halloween (remember Disneyland will close at 6pm on several nights starting at the end of the month through Halloween for the Halloween parties). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity). To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times.

This Thursday, the Resort will celebrate Thanksgiving by offering many turkey-themed meals around the parks and resort hotel restaurants. For more info, contact Disney Dining. 

unForecast Prediction: With more and more schools having this week off, expect it to be busy Monday-Wednesday during the week. For Thanksgiving Day, if history repeats itself again, expect it to not be quite busy during the morning, and then get quieter as the night progresses as a lot of people go home to eat and celebrate. Again, that's what has happened in the past. On Friday, expect both parks to be very busy as it can be one of the most busiest days of the year, but all APs are blocked out expect Premium/Premiere. And for the weekend, expect it to be busy like earlier in the week. Overall, expect CIs to be in the low 70s to low 90s this week for both parks, they'll dip down for Thanksgiving Day, then spike back up for the weekend.

Also this Friday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade will debut at 3pm and 5:45pm (notice the time changes), along with "Believe in Holiday Magic" fireworks at 9:25pm (Friday-Sunday).

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week with CI in the 50-60s, but as the weekend comes with the nice weather and hints of Christmas starting, expect the crowds to pick up to CIs in the 70s-80s. If you're planning on coming to the park on Saturday morning, be aware that it will be crowded along the parade route and Main Street as the Christmas Day parade filming will be taking place. 

Have a great week!

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm* (Friday), 9pm-11pm (Saturday), 8am-11pm (Sunday).

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday/Wednesday/Friday this week. Notice the early park closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 9am-9pm (Saturday), 8am-9pm (Sunday)

Attraction Closures: "it's a small world" is closed until November 7, in order to install the Christmas overlay. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat will be down until November 29. 

This week is the last week of Halloween Time at the Resort! After Friday, the parks will be a "transition" period between Halloween Time and Christmas Time, which officially starts on November 13. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week, even though it is the last week of Halloween Time. During this last month, we've seen it normally quieter on the days where there is a MHP that night, but the crowd level pick up around 3-4pm, during the "mix-in" time. With Halloween being on a Friday this year, it will be interesting how crowded DCA will be at night. Normally during Halloween Party nights, DCA can get very crowded, with Crowd Indexes around 90+. Overall, expect the crowds to be quiet to moderately quiet (CIs in the 50-70s at DL, and 40-60 in DCA). Weekends though are hard to predict this week due to the end of Halloween Time.

Have a great week!

Park Hours: DL: 8am-6pm* (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-6pm* (Wednesday), 10am-9pm (Thursday), 8am-7pm (Friday), 8am-12am (Saturday/Sunday). 

*Mickey's Halloween Party will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of this week. Take note of the early closing hours. 

DCA: 8am-8pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday), 8am-8pm (Wednesday), 10am-8pm (Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday/Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: "its a small world" has closed for the Christmas overlay. Expect it to open on November 7. Also, the Mark Twain Riverboat is still closed for its refurbishment, opening on November 29. On the DCA side, the Boudin Bakery Tour has closed for a refurbishment from Tuesday, October 21 and will reopen on January 16, 2015. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: Over the last few weeks, we've seen that when there isn't a Halloween Party in Disneyland Park, that day is more crowded than those days with a Halloween Party. I'm going to say that Tuesday and Thursday of this week will be the most crowded weekdays (Crowd Index between 70-85). On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA as Disneyland Park hosts another MHP (we saw a crowd index of 90+ there on Friday night). The weekends should be busy again as it is the last full weekend of Halloween Time at the Resort.

Have a great week!

DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday), 8am-8pm (Tuesday), 9am-8pm (Wednesday, Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday), 8am-10pm (Saturday, Sunday).

Entertainment Notes: Fantasmic will be shown on an extra day this week, Monday at 9pm and 10:30pm.

unForcast Crowd Prediciton: Expect it to be a little busy this Monday as it is a holiday (Columbus Day) and the park is open later than normal. During the week, expect it to be quiet for most of the day, until around 3-4pm, when the Halloween Party crowds start to arrive.  Like every Friday we've seen in October so far, expect it to be very busy in DCA on Friday night while DL hosts another Halloween Party. 

Have a great week!

This Sunday, 10/12, the Resort will host its annual CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) Walk in the morning. If you are planning to come to the park early that day, be aware that the park does open later than usual for a Sunday morning. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Overall, expect it to be moderately quiet again this week. With having three Mickey's Halloween Parties this week, expect the crowds to pick up around 3pm-4pm as the party crowd comes in, part of the "mix-in" time. On Friday night, expect it to be busy again in DCA while the Halloween Party is going on in Disneyland Park. And on Sunday, the crowds may pick up after the CHOC walk. If possible, I would take advantage of Thursday night with Disneyland Park open late, until 11pm.

Have a great week and Happy Birthday MW!

Reminder that Mickey's Halloween Party starts on Friday, September 26, in which Disneyland Park will close early for the private event. 

unForcast Crowd Prediction: With it being very hot at the parks this week and with both parks closing early, expect both parks to be quiet as the resort is in "non-peak" season.  As we get into the weekend, the temperature is supposed to go back to normal, which will cause the crowds to increase by Friday and Saturday.

Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).

FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month.  - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  616.2 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7245 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  171.2 #2390 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1357 5:04PM
