ANNUAL PASSPORT BLOCKOUTS
Unforecast for week September 6. It's starting to look a lot like Halloween! The Giant pumpkin is back watching over Main Street! Get your photo op done there during meal times and the line will be shorter. The crowd index is showing lower crowds for a bit, but Haunted Mansion Holiday returns September 9, expect crowds to increase, especially this weekend. It's also AP DAYS. You can go to Paradise Garden Grill in DCA to receive a free button and recipe cards each week while supplies last. At stage 12 in DCA, after they scan your AP, they'll also give you pins, and then you can line up for a character meet and greet, and there are more activities including non- character photo ops, coloring pages, free water and various exhibits showing offerings during Halloweentyme at the parks. Everything is on a limited basis, so try to get your items early each week. Throughout the parks sample new things to eat and try to join an MWMEETUP which you can find under the events tab in the site menu. Poison apples should be out for sale soon, get them early, things sell out quickly this time of year! Have a great week! - secretagentangel Sep 06, 2016 07:54PM
Unforecast for week of August 29, 2016. OK , I'll add some more for this week while admin is busy. starting with Monday August 29th we are getting ready to say goodbye to Paint The Night . This week it will only be run one time a night through Thursday, then twice a night through Labor day , when it goes on hiatus for a while until the holidays. So expect crowds, especially at night, to be a little bigger. Last week the major crowds came in on Friday about 7 PM and the park really filled up. Expect that again this weekend especially because it's Labor Day weekend. it's also race weekend which means races on Friday , Saturday , and Sunday so there will be road closures during the early morning until about noon along Disney way. And downtown Disney parking will be very crowded since half the parking lot is taken up by event booths. Include with that it being Labor Day and Monday being the last night to see Paint The Night for a while, the park will probably be very crowded. So bring your patience and bring some extra water. And have fun! - secretagentangel Aug 31, 2016 04:00AM
To add to week of August 29, the park has changed to early hours through Thursday which means only one PTN. Crowds appear smaller but start entering again around 7pm for 8pm show. After Labor Day the park will again be on earlier closing times except for weekends. - secretagentangel Aug 31, 2016 03:57AM
unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished.

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data.

unFORECAST for the month of April 2016
Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data.

unFORECAST for the month of March 2016
Spring Break starts this month, which will significantly increase traffic in the Parks. The Parks will be effected for several weeks due to the varying school district schedules. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), the first two weeks of March 2015 averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity), then it jumped into the 80s. We are expecting larger crowds this year, due to the 60th celebration. Spring Break crowds traditionally bleed into April as well--so the first few weeks of March might be the best time to experience smaller crowds (especially Tues-Thursday). 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 Mar 01, 2016 01:32PM
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 01, 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. 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 Jan 11, 2016 06:28PM

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
