Disney World Crowds in 2014
By Dave Shute
2014 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
By “crowds” I really mean wait times–not the number of people in the park, but not in line for a ride!
Dates in it are the beginning of the week, and the wait time forecast covers the following 9 days.
(For 2015 crowds, click here.)
Crowd levels are ranked by week from 1-11 in the following way:
HOW TO INTERPRET THE 2014 DISNEY WORLD CROWD CALENDAR
Dates are the beginning of the week.
The “low crowd” weeks–those colored green, and rated 1-4–represent the only crowd levels a family visiting for the first time, and unsure if it will ever return, should consider.
The “moderate crowd” weeks–those in black and rated 5-7–have crowd levels I would not recommend to first time visitors. However, I’d go during such weeks myself with no hesitation, and think these levels are OK for returning visitors who don’t need to see everything and already know how to work Walt Disney World.
The “high crowd” weeks–those in red, rated 8-11–should be avoided by everyone. They aren’t, which is why they are so high.
MY DISNEY WORLD CROWD CALENDAR GOES UP TO “11″
However, I’ve always thought that the really nastiest weeks of the year deserved an 11 for emphasis.
So, in homage to Spinal Tap, I assigned 11 to “highest.”
