I already promised my DS we'll do it again, so I'm in!

(And I'll be sure to bring my reading glasses this time around... hard to solve clues when you can't read them. )

Does anyone know if the "host" hotels are always the same? I assume AKL is always on the list but would last years moderate and value probably be the same?

It was included, and not worth the extra cost this year. Unlike the TOT, only a corner of AK was open and crowds were unreal. Wait times weren't too bad, but it was very congested and not all that fun. We only lasted maybe an hour (after spending an hour trying to find water that wasn't HOT and getting through bad check!)

I did it last year as part of a team, but would not give a second thought about doing it solo.

It was crowded. There was a group of us and we decided to ride Kali River Rapids four times (they let us stay in the boat) to cool off. We were pretty much the last ones out of the party, partially because the bag check line was insane, we avoided it until the bitter end.
