Here we are, east coasters who are traveling to Southern CA to be at the spot on July 17, 2005. Reservations are made, so we are all set. Based on all other past anniversaries, just how packed will it be?
On a typical summer weekend, the crowds are pressed so thight that should you die, it would take you a half-hour to fall over. On this day, expect it to take a full hour...... maybe 2.
I'd expect them to be turning people away at the gates within a couple hours after the park opens that morning. DCA should get a good boost in attendance just off DLs overflow on May 4th. May 5th and July 17th.
2.5 years ago, I went to DL on July 4th... Lines, lines everywhere. Only time I've ever seen the Jungle Cruise line go upstairs(over an hour for Jungle Cruise). Tried to leave as first Fantasmic! and fireworks ended.... What a mistake. Took me 2 hours to get to my car.
I know it's gonna be crazy packed! I plan on going both 5/5 and 7/17 so I'm curious to see which will be worse. I just plan on seeing everything new and of course make it on Space Mtn at least once. Other than that I just want to take it ALL in!!!!
My friends and I plan on showing up at the park by at least 5:30am to scope a good place in line. I want to be the first ones let in!!
