    Memorial Weekend

    How are the crowds this weekend? (Memorial weekend) I was planning on going and just wanted an estimate. I know we should plan a schedule in advanced.

    My estimate of the crowds for this HOLIDAY weekend is a total of 53,486 folks will be enjoying DL on Saturday; 56,872 on Sunday and 48,298 on Monday.

    But I could be off by one or two...

    Have fun!

    Weird, that's exactly what I was going to say.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    im sorry to inform you that on saturday it will be 56,867 people ( NOT FOLKS). you are off

    To the OP, noone has exact estimates but a little common sense being its a Holiday weekend, its likely there will be crowds. Crowds dont ALWAYS mean long lines. i have been on days soo crowded i had to park in Garden Walk..and Main Street was elbow to elbow but the lines for the rides were not bad at all.

    have fun.

    Well are the lines going to be manageable? I'm all the way in Phoenix, Arizona and I don't know if it's worth going. Should I? It's going to be one of the only times we have off for a while.

    Yes. i have went the days after New Years, really BUSY days and it was all managable. Plan ahead, be smart, and utilize fast pass.

    After the fireworks is a GREAT time to go on the big rides as the park emptys by then.

    If you want to wait one weekend, the following one is MC's Gumball Rally. No holiday weekend crowds but a lot of MCers having fun in the parks!

    Anyone have tips? It looks like we're going. Like an actual strategy? Rides, etc?

    Then it sounds like you have no choice. Just go and have a good time!


    If I had to choose between going on a busy w/e and not going at all, I'd go in a heartbeat!


    We find it VERY hard to not have a good time while at the park. A few extra people in the walkways certainly won't spoil the trip for us!

    Yeah, but that is because I was brought up before the "new" math!

    Usually, since it's a 3-day weekend for me. I go on Sunday's. Saturday is the most crowded with Sunday being crowded but not as much since some people start leaving on Sunday. Thats how I see it.
