I’m back with my annual sharing of my own Disney World planning tool.
BIG change to this year’s data. As always, I’m using data from TouringPlans.com – a GREAT source for Disney planning, and they had an amazing year in 2013 and are even better now! And in 2013 a big change was the way they create level data. Previously they put all dates in order and the crowd level for each – the bottom 10% of that list were 1’s on the crowd calendar, next 10% 2’s, etc… up to the top 10 on the list of crowd levels at Disney World were 10’s on the crowd calendar. But they’ve improved on that. Disney World crowds simply don’t follow a perfect bell curve like that – there are a lot more 5,6,7 days than 1,2,9 and 10 days and the crowd calendar now reflects that MUCH better and overall the crowd calendar is better. Thus my charts are better and still show the peaks and valley’s of wait times at Disney World. And remember, the keyword there is wait times – not crowds, this is based entirely on wait times. Disney World is always crowded, it’s wait times that matter.
