Crowd prediction websites

I have been looking at three different websites that predict how crowded the different parks will be on certain days when we arrive Monday, Feb 4 for a week.
Problem is, they all have different predictions. Anyone had any luck with these things?

Polynesian 76, 78, 80, 83, 85, 2010

Disney Fantasy Cruise 2013
Port Orleans Riverside 2013

When they disagree it means no one knows what will happen.

I like Josh at easywdw.com because he gives sound reasoning for why he recommends (or doesn't recommend) a particular park on a particular day.

I like touring plans and the lines app

It seems pretty accurate

We've found the crowd level estimates/daily park recommendations on easy wdw to be very accurate.

It's kind of like trying to predict the weather --

you have past data, you have models, you have hunches

and then anything can happen!

It's tempting to think that any one site can be accurate in predicting crowds, but bottom line is that they can't.

Use them to get a general sense of what *might* happen, and then make your own plans knowing that anything can happen.

WDW once a year since 2003!
