    Wait times at POTC have dropped - 6/29/06

    Stopped by Disneyland yesterday afternoon (round 4:30 PM) to grab a few photos of the new Stage area near Cafe Orleans for the performing Pirates show that starts next week (July 7th), and was really surprised to see the wait time posted as 30 minutes.

    The queue was just past the entrance archway, so they were not even using the extended queue.

    I presume that the wait will be a bit longer this weekend due to the larger crowds.

    Here is a few photos of the area....

    Yes, the wait times dropped of substantially starting on Wednesday, due to less people visiting specifically for Pirates, and the high capacity of the ride. As I posted previously, it was 25 minutes or less all times I rode it this week.

    Oh....just wait! Starting Saturday those wait times will rise! They will rise my friend!

    I think most people are staying away from the parks especially APers due to the summer season and four day weekend.

    It may also be that many APers are blacked out! I know my friends stated they were going to enjoy all the new rides in October when the park is mild!

    I have a friend going to the park today because she has the So cal AP and she says this is her last chance to us it until late August--so I'm thinking the crowds will be pretty heavy today. On the plus side, it seems like the humidity has dropped some.

    I am really happy with Smugmug, and the fact it is very well maintained and can handle large volume loads. (Which is helpful, since I caused some major volume this last week, looks like I will have over 9 million hits this month alone)

    Thank you for the photos and the time update! Tuesday they said an hour and fifteen minutes and it was only 35 minutes, that was nice.

    AH! I was there yesterday too. Whenever I stopped by to see the line, it seemed a little long but worth the wait! It was about 30 minutes wait, like you said. unlike everyone else here, i DIDN't ride pirates even though the wait had gone down. well here's my sob story lol..i was with my friends and they didn't want to "wait in that line for pirates" even if it were 30 minutes. they were clearly not excited AT ALL about it and thought i was crazy. i know...they're the crazy ones! So pirates was put down to the bottom of our priority list. I guess they didn't understand what the big deal was about. =/ still a little mad about that!

    I rode Pirates four times Thursday and the wait was a mere 15 minutes each time. YEA! I had prepared myself for 30-60 minute waits consuming most of my short time at DL, but I got on fairly quickly each time.
