As an experiment, to understand what a lower vs high Crowd Calendar day would look like…
I created a DHS plan for 12/12/21 which is a CC 3, and another DHS plan for the next day (12/13/21) which is a CC 6. I know Touring Plans says the difference between, say, a 3 and a 4 aren’t going to be huge. But I would expect to see some measurable difference between 3 and 6.
The metrics match on both plans: same arrival time, same exit time, same “lunch/break” rules (set for 11:30, to last 60 minutes, 30 minutes flexibility), and the same 8 attractions.
As far as time spent waiting in line, which is my main concern, they’re the same.
“3” = 306 minutes
“6” = 300 minutes
The “6” day takes 20 minutes longer to complete because there’s some “wait time” it put in before lunch. (I tried changing the flexibility from 30 minutes to 60 minutes to test it, which eliminated the “wait time”, but the “in line” total stayed exactly the same.)
Can you help me understand why they are so similar?
Shouldn’t you spend more time waiting in line on a “6” day than you would on a “3” day?
If all DHS Park Passes are scooped up each day we’re there, then theoretically the waits would be the same each day. But if that’s the case wouldn’t the Crowd Calendar prediction numbers be the same each day?
