Stopped by the DLR to check on the amount of folks that wanted to ride POTC this morning.
Got there around 7:20 AM and there were a few hundred folks waiting for the official 8 AM opening, but it was also an Early Entry day, and thanks to a friend, got in thru the EE process.
Folks started to line up at 7 AM (actually earlier at the turnstiles) at the entrance to Frontierland to be the first to ride. By 7:40 AM (regular gates still closed) the line reached to almost City Hall. Around 7:45, the front of the line was allowed to move up to the Golden Horseshoe entrance, where a few entertainers kept the front of the line folks entertained until 8 AM, when the line was allowed to enter the queue. A group of TV stations were placed across from the POTC entrance along the edge of the Rivers of America.
Around 9 AM, the line was still started at City Hall, but now the entire queue and Frontierland was also being used, over a 2 hour wait.
Around 10:20 AM the line did get shorter (but not sure if they added additional switchbacks in the queue), now it was at the north end of Main Street near the Wait Board and was posted as an 105 minute wait.
Photos to come later....
