    Chris, Do you think the crowdforcast will be redone for Spring break 2020 now that coronavirus is spreading? We are planning to travel from USA to TDR on Spring Break week – the absolute busiest time in march. We are considering cancelling our trip but also wonder if the crowds are expected to be less than normal due to precautions?
    I can’t remember if Chinese passport holders are banned from entering Japan at this time.

    This is such unknown territory, so I wouldn’t expect the crowd calendars to reflect this as there’s no previous data on what’s currently happening. Don’t follow crowd calendars too close, use them as a general guideline. It’s going to be busy regardless since the vast majority of visitors to the Parks are locals. But, no one knows for sure. I could be completely wrong.
