I always read your crowd report every Monday @fred! I really like the new(ish) format.
Crowd Report for last week, although a little later than usual, is now up.The Crowd Report
Thanks for the crowd reports. I didn't know about it until you started posting them here, but now I always click on the link from here.
What do you think caused the crowds to be so much higher yesterday (August 12) than anticipated?
It's hard to say. We don't see any obvious explanation, it may just be a general increase in attendance.
I'm going to continue to "like" every one of your crowd calendar report links.
Is this not going to be a thing, posting the weekly Crowd Report? Is there a link where this information is available?
@eriinfo - it's posted every Monday on the TP blog.
Thank you! I'll look for it.
I am calling shenanigans on the November 6 - 10th crowd calendar; there isn’t a bed or a CAMPGROUND SPOT (think that one through) available at any WDW resorts. Not a room. SO, either 1/2 the resort inventory is being taken offline or our predicted 4s & 5s are wrong. I just know if I don’t go for a Liner weekend meet up I will hate myself seeing the pictures and not being there, and as of now I am booked at the 4 Seasons due to nothing else available (and it’s not the price, it’s the complete lack / minimal transportation that bugs me most) Calling @fred or maybe @len knows of planned reduction in inventory?
It is very odd @MagicMN. All I can think of is that it’s the sort of week when lots of on-property Disney fans visit, but not a lot of locals or people who stay off property. I hope it isn’t super crazy crowded!
I will guess they pulled resort inventory - not even a campground spot is open. There are 30,000 WDW resort rooms. Even with some huge conventions I find it hard to believe they are booked (and it’s a weekend that’s booked vs during the week) - they’re never allllll booked except for the big holidays like NYE. Who CAMPS the first week of November at WDW?
edit: There is just now a full price Treehouse (3 bedroom) villa available
I did find a room on Orbitz when I looked a few weeks ago, so maybe some 3rd party bought a big block of rooms? I don’t know. It’s a mystery. I hope you find someplace to stay. It would be nice to meet you.
That’s a race weekend, so maybe people are coming for that?
Good point - darned health nuts, don’t they know there are Liners in search of a party?
