This is really funny. Must be all about perception. OP is having a miserable time, but Kristie posted this new thread within minutes of this thread.

ZERO problems with Magic Bands, in fact, they're amazing!!!

Lines are WONDERFUL!! Went to AK and rode EE until my stomach couldn't handle anymore, lol!! Was in Epcot by 10:17 after doing everything we wanted to in AK.

You're at a different DW than me then!! We're amazed at lack of lines and crowds, lol. All about attitude and perspective I guess ...

OP, a quick check of wait times shows DHS super crowded while Epcot seems practically dead. MK slow to. Can you hop?

Are you in a low crowd park today, like Epcot, or maybe a high crowd park, like Animal Kingdom?

Yesterday we where at MK. On our Sept. trips we have always rode rides like SM, POTC, Buzz and BTMR multiple times. The only one we were able to ride was SM once and that was only because we had a FP. It also took us 1 1/2 hours to get back to our resort last night. Today we are at DHS. We got here at 8 for a 9 opening. Went straight to JTA. DS was able to be in the first show at 9:20. By the time the show was over we got to TSA by 9:45 and FP were already gone with the standby line at 105 mins. I have just not experienced crowds this heavy in Sept. do I was not prepared . We will see how the rest of the week goes.

We just returned yesterday from a week there and we were amazed at how packed it was. We always go in november and have never experienced crowds like that. Especially the MK. We went there three times and all three were wall to wall people. And as for the magic bands. They are a total waste of time. Everytime I tried to enter any park the mickey head would turn blue instead of green. Then I would have to wait for someone to come and ask me a bunch of questions and adjust it. If it were happening to alot of guests at the same time I would have to wait even longer for them to get to me completely wasting valuable park time.

According to easywdw, yesterday was considered a "Monday" for the MK since ACTUAL Monday was a MVMCP day. That's probably why it was so crowded there yesterday.

According to MDE, the current (1:15 EST) wait times at DHS for the main attractions are:

TSMM 45 min
RNRC 20 min
TOT 20 min
ST 10 min

These are very similar to the wait times we saw at DHS last Wednesday.

Either these times are wrong, or the park is definitely not packed, or even remotely crowded.

We just got back Monday- we were amazed at how not crowded it was/ but were comparing it to June December and March not September- September is some of te lightest crowds so that's probably why you feel it's crowded
