    Wow - I have only heard of that happening a hand full of times. That is increadible. I wonder what the waits were like? Also, was WDSP capacity as well? I bet that was miserable.

    Does DLP work like DL when at capacity, by extending hours and putting more entertainment on?

    This does not suprise me at all and the Saturday before was just as crazy, with wait times for Star Tours reaching 120 mins, POTC 60 min, with the shortest waits being 45 mins for Small World, Dumbo and Phantom Manor, although Phantom Manor did reach 90 mins at one point in the afternoon. These were monster crowds that I have only experienced before at Tokyo Disneyland.

    The crowds at the Studios were a bit less crowded but wait times were still strong and both sides of the Armegeddon queue was opened which I have never seen before.

    What I will say is that attendance on Weekend's is very strong but for attendance to grow I feel more needs to be done to lure people in during the quieter Weekdays. But still great news for the Resort and I am convinced Attendance is going to remain strong thanks to the special offers like the Kids Go Free, and other such deals like the free day trips that are being offered in the Sun Newspaper.

    This was our experience the first weekend of Halloween, but we still had a fantastic with a capital F in spite of the crowds. If only they would put fireworks on during really busy days!

    Malin - is there a trip report coming about your DLP experience.

    I am frustrated right now as I have to renew my passport so we had to miss out on the Christmas festivities (though it sounds like that's a good thing with those crowds). I think I will need to find some time between now and our scheduled May visit.

    It doesn't surprise me, When I went on the last day of my trip (Saturday 22nd) Both parks were crazy busy, the queues for Tower of Terror and Crush were both about 1 hour at 10am, not helped by Tram Tour and Armageddon being closed for technical reasons. I then went into the main park and Space mountain was 120 minutes and everything had queues so we didn't really go on much that day.

    It is great for Disneyland but I would much rather go on a quiet Tuesday and be able to walk straight onto any ride (pretty much).

    I agree if the Weekends continue to get this busy, additional peak entertainment should be offered. Maybe its time to start offering Fantaillusion and a Fireworks show to the Weekend line up.

    I plan to add a DLRP Trip Report very soon, but I warn now its a lot more postitve than my WDW experience.

    I plan to visit at some point too next year, but havn't yet decided on a date. If your interested in a short break may I recomend perhaps visiting during either the St David's Day or St Patrick's Day festivals.

    This is not great news... long queues whole day makes tens of thousands of angry guests who swear they'll never come back again..

    I suppose yesterdays quite nice weather brought them in.

    True. But sustained lack of capacity usually results in the Disney Company adding new rides to share the load. So, let's all hope that attendance stays up at DLRP.

    According to someone on Disney Central Plaza, the capacity for Disneyland Park is 85,000. And according to someone on MagicForum, the park reached its capacity last weekend as well(!).

    I'm not sure about Disneyland's, because I never read the same number twice... But it seems to be somewhere between 60,000 and 80,000.

    So I would say this is all very good.
