    I was going to go today but I saw times and was shocked. I literally went yesterday and everything was normal wait times. Today, even with all AP blocked out accept Premium AP;s I saw wait times of 120+ for Indiana Jones, and Space Mountain, Matching the wait of Radiator Springs Racers. I know its Christmas in a few days but wow, really hope next summer isnt this bad.

    Disneyland got 63K on Saturday, and DCA got 33K, for a total of 96K for the total Resort. Those are numbers we used to only get on NYE, but now they can show up on popular Saturday's. The days after Christmas this upcoming week will bring in even more people than that, barring rainy weather. Parking has become a very big problem now, with the Anaheim Convention Center, Pumbaa and GardenWalk used for overflow parking several days in the past week. Expect ticket price hikes to follow soon.

    I was looking at the MouseWait app last night and the crowd index was like 86/100 or something like that.
    I am so sick of Frozen I can't even describe the feeling.

    They must have reopened it because I got there between 2 and 2:30 and I got right in. They had just opened up Daisey and I got one of the first spaces by the elevator. The rest of the level was empty.

    This does happen often. They close M+F after the first wave parks, then after spreading guests out to other lots reopen it to let late arrivals get in without causing traffic problems by wandering the streets figuring out where to park.

    Follow the directions on the lighted signs, so you don't waste an hour cirling the bblock.

    Went at rope drop. The first couple of hours weren't bad at all. Then it got a bit dicey. Strange thing was that it didn't seem like anyone was using fast passes. Went to Roger Rabbit's a few minutes after 2 pm. It was showing a 50 minute standby wait. From the line, I knew that the wait was about 20 minutes more than that. (Been there; done that.) Got the fast pass for 3:15. Hit up IASW which was posting a sign of an hour wait. It turned out to be one half of that. Then used the pass for RR. Found that to be true of all the attractions that offer fast pass.
    The trains were jammed most of the day. Crowds dropped a lot after the second parade. Lines for food were pretty ugly, too. Clarabelle's in ToonTown had run out of some food items in the mid afternoon. The gift shops seemed fairly empty with no lines for buying things. We did not see a lot of Disney bags leaving the park. Downtown Disney was a zoo later in the evening with long waits for a table.
    All in all, the crowd was in a fairly good mood. Cast members less so. I think a lot had to do with the cool weather. Last year we went on Christmas Eve (a Saturday) & it was a lot less crowded.
    We stayed about 12 hours (taking an hour mid day break) & went on 18 or 19 attractions & watched the entire parade. It helps A LOT to use the fast passes early & often.

    Yesterday (12/22) was the last day that Cast Members could sign in their guests for the year.

    Today the crowds seem much more manageable.
