Crowd Calendar question about MNSSHP

Does the crowd number for MK on a MNSSHP day take into account the crowd size during the party, only the pre-party crowd or some combination?

CL are ONLY key ride wait times between 10-5. They have no bearing on actual number of park guests or how busy the parks are with people not riding. A good example is during food and wine at Epcot. CL can be super low but you cannot move in world showcase because of the crowds.

There is a touring plans blog that lists the parties from least to most crowded out there

thanks - i didn’t realize that!

Here is the blog post that @Sam2071 mentioned.

thank you so much - very helpful!
