I went for my birthday last year (Jan. 31). It was a Tuesday, and both parks were deserted. If I'd brought roller skates, I could have roller skated, if I roller skated. I think I managed to hit 32 attractions (with some duplication) in something like 7 hours. I can imagine it will be like that this January as well.
I got quite a lot in January - once the New Years rush is over (like the 3 or 4th) it tends to be fairly quiet from then till Spring Break hits! Have fun. Though, keep in mind, emptier park also means shorter park hours and less shows and parades. But really, it is quite nice.
We went about that time last year, and it was OK, pretty good lines. One thing to remember, is that Martin Luther King Jr. weekend? If so, it's a holiday for school kids, so it might be busier than other January weekends.

Forgot about that (we working stiffs don't get that day off). It would be blacked out for passholders, so my theory still stands. Yea!
Well, maybe they (whoever sets blocked out dates) haven't gotten around to that one yet.
It would require adding another blocked out day to Deluxe. Guess who would notice something like that? A lot of Ap'ers that's who!
Do note that the whole weekend is blocked out for SoCal AP.
