    Is WDW less busy this year than last?

    I was looking at the pictures that TDLFAN posted. MK looked lightly populated. Are all the parks disserted? Do you think it was the high gas prices? Or was it just an off day?

    Re: Is WDW less busy this year than last?

    You know... I was actually surprised to find the MK so uncrowded two days ago when I visited (maybe the reason why it was so clean?), concidering we were 3 days away from the 4th of July. Or maybe most tourists are hitting other parks around Central FL before the big crunch tomorrow for the holiday? However, if memory serves me well... Last year was more crowded...maybe because of the Happiest Faux celebration festivities going on.. I pity all those guests who made the wrong turn and ended up in Orlando thinking *we* were the ones turning 50 yrs old.

    I may be at WDW later tonight and definitely tomorrow... so I will check the situation and see what the deal is. Not a big deal to me since I am used to much much intense and overcrowded conditions at TDL.
    I'll report on this asap.

    I know that that 50th Celebration did not go over in Orlando as it did in California. That would be expected by anyone with common sense. "Come to Orlando to celebrate our park in California..."

    I am also not impressed with a "Million Dreams." I don't believe that the average person is that dull. We want new rides and attractions not hype! Not a contest in which only one family wins. You know that you won't win. I just hope that Disney wakes up and builds something new and exciting! MK really needs something new and wonderful!

    Well... I agree but, remember, they claim WDW is the most visited resort on Earth, so what does that tell you about the percentage "dull" factor arriving in Orlando??

    I didn't think the MK on the 3rd was anymore than moderately crowded.

    But Epcot tonight felt packed. You could barely move around the World Showcase Lagoon and people were camping out to see Iluminations.
    I honestly don't recall a busier feel since I was last there on New Year's Eve, and it's been years.

    Really? I thought Epcot was busy, yes, but I have seen the place much much crowded than tonight. As late as I arrived, I got one of the best seats in the house for the fireworks. The crowdest I have ever seen EPCOT was Dec31st, 1999. Horribly crowded, courtesy of the Millenium Celebration.

    I know EPCOT set attendance records on NYE 2003 (going to 2004).

    It certainly felt much less crowded. I wouldn't say it is empty or deserted by any means, but it did feel less crowded than last year (though Animal Kingdom was much more crowded courtesy one gigantic mountain).
