    My Touring Plans sub lapsed and I didn't renew because I've read the general consensus here that they don't do as good a job with Disneyland as they do with Disney World and we aren't planning a World trip in the next year. (Plus, I also now think the free Easy WDW predictions are better, but I digress.)

    I had checked our crowd numbers a few months ago, when I still had access, but wonder if they have changed recently.

    Anyone want to share the overall crowd predictions for that week? (If that's not allowed, I apologize for asking.) Mostly, I'm just curious since I know it is what is, regardless. Just trying to mentally gear up for what I expect will be some pretty out of control crowds, at least for the first three days.

    We'll be there Oct 13-20, glad to see the predictions are not too high.

    With that being said, I never really trust these predictions for as I said before, the weather guy can barely tell what the weather will be like the next day!

    I wonder why they predict Sat 10/13 will be a 10 while the Sat. before and after are each 8? What's unique about the 13th?

    Isn't the CHOC walk that Sunday? Maybe that is why teh 13th is heavy? Oh, and UEA is also that weekend.

    I don't know, I'm inclined to think Touring Plans is winging it. CHOC walk is a local event on Sun. before the park opens, so it doesn't seem like it'd make Sat. a 10? Participants can buy discounted entry tix, though. Mousesavers says UEA is the following weekend. And the Gay Days tickets are good for several weekends.

    I'm not trying to be contrary. I'm thinking POSITIVE! ;)

    Me too! I'm wondering if the hotels might be more full due to CHOC being Sunday morning but that doesn't mean everyone in those rooms will be in the parks Saturday.

    Can someone clarify these numbers for me? I'm guessing all the numbers are "out of ten", with total average and park breakdowns? Just want to be sure I understand.

    Looks like they were off about today too. It was listed as a 1 and the MouseWait indicator seemed like it was much fuller than predicted.
