    DL Crowds this week - anyone gone?

    Hi all,

    I'm thinking about taking the kids to DL this Friday afternoon. I've heard here about the horrible crowds before Xmas. Anyone have any info about this week. It's hard to take when you can't walk 2 ft in front of you.

    Thanks a bunch

    Re: DL Crowds this week - anyone gone?

    I just popped in to do some shopping this morning (1/4) and the crowds were o.k. between 10 and 11:30 am.

    HOWEVER, when I was leaving, the lines stretched almost across to DCA AND there were about 150 to 200 people in line for tickets!

    I've never SEEN it that crowded at the ticket booths, even during the Summer.

    Has anyone else noticed this? I couldn't help but think that the rest of the day was going to be REALLY REALLY crowded as both LA and Orange county schools are still out this week.

    Me thinks it will be very busy. School's out in L.A., the Rose Bowl, APs not blocked out. A perfect storm as it were. I'll be there regardless - I'm sure I've been in more crowded conditions.
    Added - maybe the local have taken advantage of the weekdays and will avoid the weekend. Just wishful thinking.

    *shivers*

    I'll wait until school gets back in at least to return to the park.

    I went yesterday, and the entire Star Tours queue was fulkl around 3 PM, and that included the secondary queue inside (the old ATIS exit).

    Space Mountain was at a 75 minute wait, and FP's were gone.

    iaswh's queue was full, and flowed over to the old Light Magic area.

    Pirates queue was full (both sides) and spilled out to the edge of ROA.

    Supposely over 60,000 showed up yesterday.

    That is BUSY!

    Re: DL Crowds this week - anyone gone?

    Went today with my little girl. CM at Dumbo said there was 36000 in the park, that was at 9:45am. There were lots and lots of strollers. We went on Jan 1 and it felt more crowded today. Lots of Texas Longhorns fans too so I'm not sure if they will still be around.

    Met about 5 families from Australia today. It was hot, hot, hot today.
