    Personally, I would avoid the cheerleaders at all costs. Not only do they increase the crowds, but they are notorious for bringing a great deal of NOISE. Just to give a few obnoxious examples, I've heard of them practicing their cheerleader routines in line, screaming non-stop at the top of their lungs in line, or just marching down Main Street while screaming.

    I'll be there the 17th through the 24th: hopefully I can avoid the cheerleaders (I don't do well with "peppy" people). I can seriously see something bad happening with some screaming 13 year old while I'm waiting in line. But then again, I'm 6'2" - bald and have a couple dozen tattoos -- usually a stare is all it takes to take the perky out of people!

    We were at DLR the week of the 21st last year, and it was D-E-A-D... we cleared all the rides at both parks in 2 1/2 days... including pix with Mickey, Minnie and all the princesses at the Meet and Greet

    Sorry for the confusion, I said I was at DLR (DisneyLand Resort). I assume it was dead since it was after Spring Break, and before Memorial day. So all the students were probably studying for finals, and not too many people were on vacation.

    Third time's a charm, so here goes:
    I was at DisneyLand LAST year the weekend of 4/21 and it was dead.... extrapolating that info leads me the the conclusion that Walt Disney World will be slow this year.
