I know, right? It's like she's thinking: "Uh, really??"

I've got a fantastic empty park story:

To preface - these pictures are from November, 2011 at Typhoon Lagoon, at 1:30 in the afternoon on a partly sunny day in the mid-70s!!!







We had planned a TL day on a Thursday of our trip (the 16th?), and we woke up and it was raining lightly. We said "F*** it" and decided to go to the park anyways. We got there and there were about 25 people waiting for rope drop. Usually when we do this there are 500-1000 people waiting for rope drop. It rained for maybe the first 45 minutes the park was open off and on. Then the rain let up and the sun came out. But still, there was NO-ONE there. Our DD did the shark reef on a continuous loop about 10 times (get to the end, circle to the front and go again) because their was no line even there. Between the heated water on the rides and the sun, it was plenty comfortable.

I took these pictures around 1:30 PM. There were less than 100 people in the entire wave pool. We left the park about 3 PM (only because we had dinner plans to make) and on the way out ask the CM if there were 1,000 people in attendance that day - she said "Oh no, much less than that." It was AMAZING! It was literally having the park to ourselves.
