Here now, crowds...

are great! I was really kind of expecting things to be crazy due to some of the recent posts (even though my gut was telling me there is NO way it could be as bad as summer), but it's not! Yesterday we did the ToT Expo to pick up our race packets/bibs for tonight, and then did Epcot from 2pm-9pm. We did F+W booths all day with very short waits. After 5:30pm it started getting more busy, and by 7:30pm it was definitely really packed in World Showcase at the booths, but we had a Tokyo Dining adr for 7:45 which was perfect. After dinner we strolled out!

Today we got to MK for the opening show and rope drop. Yes there were lots of people but we have been in June the last 3 years where you couldn't even see pavement in the hub area. There was tons of free space, tons of mobility and empty spaces. At 10:45 am Dumbo standby was listed as 15 mins and it ended up being less than 5. Space was down due to technical issues and the cm said they would honor our FP all day. I guess some first time visitors are expecting the parks to be literally EMPTY? Not sure, but everything is manageable and the weather is hot but I love it!

Moved Your Post Here

Due to an increase in the number of Live Report and Just Back threads, the Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies Moderator Team has decided to start moving these over to our trip report forum. The purpose of the theme parks attractions and strategies board is to help people find valuable information to plan their trips, discuss the attractions, and changes that are happening at Disney World.

Live trip reports, and just back threads are really a better fit for our trip report board. You can find the trip report forum here:


We know that everyone loves to talk about their trips, and we do love to hear about everyone's trips. So, please share your trip stories, and read about other trip stories over on our trip report forum.

The line at check in at AoA was out the door today. The cast member next to me that he has never seen it that long since they opened. We just stayed at the resort today. We got here at 11 but out room wasn't ready until 3. We did spend an hour or 2 at DTD and it didn't seem crowed there at all.
