We are scheduled to go to Hollywood studios on Monday, March 28. I’m confused by the crowd predictions here on touring plans vs Disney’s reservations. Disney says they are full that day with tickets/reservations for Hollywood Studios. How can Hollywood Studios be a 6 crowd that day according to Touringplans.com but be completely booked online with Disney? Touringplans.com predicts Epcot will be a 7 out of 10 that day and Animal Kingdom a 6 out of 10 that day and they both still have availability for reservations according to Disney. I’m considering changing my bookings so we go to Epcot on Monday (we are already doing Animal Kingdom Sunday.) Then move our Hollywood studios to Wed. March 30.
The reservation system doesn’t necessarily represent park capacity. There are different buckets of reservations, depending on your ticket type. Also, availability can be added later by Disney.
TPs crowd calanders is, I believe, an indication of how the ride lines will feel. You could potentially have a lot of foot traffic at a park but not a lot of people there for the rides. So the park can feel like an 8 walking around but the line waits will be more indicative of a 5 or 6.
And welcome to the forum!
