I know ALOT of people, myself included, are thrilled that Disneyland is doing well. It's great to finally see the park looking so nice, running nice, offering good shows, etc, etc, etc.
But ... there used to be a time when you could go to the parks on a non-holiday weekend in the off-season and not see lines in excess of 20 - 30 minutes and rather empty walkways.
Say what you will about the Pressler/Harris era but there were non-busy days to enjoy the park.
It seems lately that EVERY DAY is packed. Sure if you get to the park early you can get on some rides early and enjoy some nice empty walkways.
Gone are the days of walking up to Jungle Cruise or Big Thunder or even Pinnochio, the Tea Cups or Small World at noon on a Sunday and walking on. Even the most minor attractions have lines of 30 minutes plus.
My only explanation of all this is the 50th. It has turned in to such a success that people who have not gone to Disneyland in years are now going. Add the fact that the 2-fer (needelessly IMO) started recently and there really is no more off-season.
Am I alone in wishing that just once in awhile the park wouldn't be so busy???
