Disney World Crowd Calendar 2011 – Disney World Planning

Filed under: Places,Random Stuff — Tags: , , , — Scott @

I am a huge fan of Disney World and a huge fan of the Touring Plans Crowd Calendar; heck I’m a huge fan of everything Touring Plans has to offer.  Planning a potential upcoming trip I decided to look at the numbers how I need them.  Basically Saturday – Saturday (although now thinking why not add a night and go Saturday – Sunday, but for now this data is Sat – Sat) for the entire year.  So here’s a quick look at what I found and how I did it.  I put all the crowd calendar numbers for 2011, except the first week because I started late and didn’t go back and fix it, into a spreadsheet.  Then I totaled the crowd level number for the 8 days from all Saturday to Saturdays for the year.  So of course, the lower the number the less the crowds across all 8 days.  I then made a few charts to represent this, now I’m sharing.

According to (as of 1/4/11) the least crowded week at Disney World is 9/17 – 9/24.

Followed closely by any week the rest of September.  The last week of January is also expected to have very low crowds and short wait times.

There are of course a great many factors when determining when to go to Disney World besides simply crowd levels but I thought this was interesting data and some people might agree so I thought I’d share.

Crowd Calendar Numbers - Disney World - Jan 2011

Crowd Calendar Numbers - Disney World - Jan 2011 updates this data as needed – usually when Disney changes operating hours and of course these are only estimates (but TP is really, really good at it) so subject to change for multiple reasons.


  1. Should you really be posting subscription-required data on your blog?

  2. This is not directly the data you get from them, it’s my use of the data. A grey area I admit but I give them full credit and full props for their great data. I’m simply showing how I use this data – in a different form than they offer it.
