OK. My wife and I had a wonderful time this Friday night. But I was AMAZED at how CROWDED it was!!!! We got to the park around 7:30 and there was a long line at the Micky and Friends lot! Plus the entry gates where backed up past the Monorail track!!! I was amazed that there was still a good ammount of people waiting in the ticket booth to BUY tickets! (I asumed everyone was an AP). Is it always this way? Im guessing a LOT of it is from the 50th and I THOUGHT everyone would depart after the 9:25 show (Our resurvations at BB was for 9 so I missed it.) but no, there was still one hell of a crowd all the way till midnight!
Also, we left at midnight after taking a 11:59 ride on Big Thunder. One hell of a way too end and start a day! Anyways, We got too the trams in DTD and waited for 30 mins just to get on a train!!! It seams the crowd caught them off guard as the only had 4 trams TOTAL doing the Mickey and Friends run. There was 10 min waits between trams. I have NEVER EVER seen it this way. Did anyone else notice this? Is this common? The wife wants to make Friday nights a tradition (1 hour + drive from Glendale) but if its this way often, I dont know about it. Whats your thoughts?
