On an average October weekend, do you think it would be less busy on a Friday or a Sunday? I wish I could go both days, but since I have to choose, I'd much rather go on a slow day.
October is a hard month to call....
Disney is doing the Car giveaway, which should increase AP attendance
The first weekend is Gay Days and the CHOC walk, plus the opening of Huanted Mansion Holiday.
The second week is a three day holiday weekend.
So take that in consideration, I would say that Friday would be the better day, but be prepared for large crowds in the evening as folks come to the park to see Fantasmic! and the Fireworks. Sunday will be busier in the day, but less busy at night, since, except for the holiday weekend, there will be no Fireworks.
Eek! *runs off to check calendar* Ok, I'll be there the third weekend. My choices are going either Friday the 14th or Sunday the 16th. I'm leaning towards Friday, since I've never seen Fantasmic. They don't do Fantasmic on Sundays, do they? (I am waiting impatiently for the Disneyland site to load, but on dial-up it takes about ten minutes to get any actual information off of it.)
Now I will answer my own question! They do, in fact, run Fantasmic on Sundays, or at least on that Sunday, at 9 pm. We'll probably wind up making our decision at the last minute (Thursday night) depending on the weather forecast.
