I noted in my last 2017 update that it was the last of the 2017 calendars, however, many of the crowd calendars out there have changed or updated and new sites have come to light! So, with that, I’ve updated both my consolidated calendars (2017 and 2018).
Both of these new calendars now have up to SEVEN sites averaged into the equation:
- WDWPrepSchool.com (Jan-Jul)
- DisneyByAge.com (NEW!)
As before, not all calendars go out the entire year. At least not for 2018. These will be updated in a few months. But for now, here are the calendars (note that I did not update the 2017 calendar to the new format used in the 2018 one, I just didn’t want to take the time (there, I admit it!)) [
edit: I’m not impressed with how WordPress crunched the pics below, they look like crap… I’ll update ASAP]:
Again, as before, if you’re a data nerd, you can view the work via Google Sheets; the 2017 calendar and the 2018 calendar. To sum up what you’d see in the data; I convert all the differing sites to a five (5) point scale and then a simple average on them. When we were planning our trip last year it was driving me mad that all the sites had slightly different data and thus was born the aggregated crowd calendar.
I used to try and tell people when it was best to go, but really, the data speaks for itself. Happy planning all. And if I’ve missed a great site to use please let me know.
