    How much does D23 affect the crowd level?

    Goin to DL from the 8th-12th and it just so happens that's D23 too. We've been going the last 4 years during this time, and we've managed the crowds well, will D23 make THAT much of a difference? Are APs blocked out this weekend?

    Sunday morning is still the least crowded time to be at the parks. Deluxe passes are only blacked out on August 10. Southern California passes and Southern California Select passes are blacked out the entire time. When the convention is going on, the parks actually experience normal crowds, but in the evening, it seems like everyone at the D23 Expo rushes to the parks.

    Yep, John is right on the money. Days will be pretty manageable, nights will get busy, but smart planning, and getting a few late Fastpass times can make the nights fine too. Plan to do the things like Space, Indy, RSR early. "People eaters" like PotC, Small World and HM will probably still have fairly short lines even when the parks get crowded. If you don't mind getting wet you can do Splash or Grizzly late with short lines usually too, unless it's unusually hot of course. But get your priorities out of the way early, whatever they are, and then spend the night relaxing and hoping on a few Fastpass rides or those "people eaters".
    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.
