    ....just how crowded could it get at WDW?

    I wonder just how crowded it could get at WDW?

    27,000 acres.

    43,000+ square feet to an acre.

    If each person were to stand on a single square foot of space(kinda like a rock concert) there would be enough room for over 1 billion people

    1/6 the population of the planet could stand in an area the size of the WDW property.

    Isn't that including all the lakes and waterways. I think only a small fraction of that number belongs to the parks and hotels.

    you're talking about the old electric parade...right? They haven't stopped the Spectro Magic parade, right? I was so sad when they stopped the old parade...I remember it from when I was little...but, Spectro magic is great!!

    I think there were about that many people there when we were there in July last year.

    And I appreciate you Keep up the good work! Will you be working this weekend? If so, keep an eye out for a big gal with a little girl wearing an everest lanyard and a name tag with Summer written on it. If you see us say hi! It's always nice to appreciate good CM's.
