Hope it dies down before we get there on the 22nd. Hate to spend all this money and have swarms of flies to deal with

From my experience, it really wasn't a big deal - they were there, and it was somewhat annoying, but certainly nothing that ruined our fun. It was more odd than anything else.

It must be a southern thing i'm from NY and I never heard of a love bug. lol is it a ladybug? I must google this.
Do you think this fly thing is a result of global warming issues??

I'm really hoping this is gone by next Friday. I definitely don't want to be swatting away flies for 24 hours. The most I've had to deal with at home (3.5 hours away in Miami) is gnats. Disgusting little bugs that only come out with the rain but this sounds much worse.

The flies are just bad this year. I live a couple of miles behind the MK and the flies at my home have been terrible. There are bunches of them on the screen to my lanai. They seem to like to land on cars which makes it hard to get in without letting them in also.

I walked through my backyard and was swarmed. Hopefully, this will be a short lived phenomena.

They are not that bad in person. They remind me of lightening bugs, only dumber. The only real bad thing about them is having to wash the front of your car everyday during love bug season.

They just kind of float around and are much more interested in each other than anything else.

The flies certainly didn't ruin my good time, but sure did ruin a couple of meals. The positive thing about them is that the big numbers of them are only in isolated pockets so they are easy to get away from. There is an increase in solo flies, but at least the whole place isn't swarming.

BTG is the first thing that came to mind. I do love going in January, but I have to say I would rather deal with the flies also.

It's not just at Disney. They're bad all over (we live in Winter Garden and haven't experienced flies like this...only been in WG for 4 summers, though)

I'm thinking about heading over to AK on Friday. Will be interesting to see if there is a change or not. With this coming weekend being the start of Star Wars Weekend, I'm sure we will get multiple reports on how it is

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Yes! For some reason, the thing that annoys me most about love bugs is that they're just plain stupid. I never knew there were varying degrees of insect intelligence until I was introduced to love bugs.
