Live from wdw via iPhone

I'm here now, arrived yesterday at pop. Lots of people waiting for dme. Checked in at 12 but room wasn't ready so we went to epcot for lunch. TT was a 100 minute wait!! Soarin was around 50 and stayed there until we left. Room wasn't ready til after 3 and bags didn't arrive by the time we left for dinner at le cellier.

F&WF booths were mobbed. Arrived at 6:20 for our 6:45 ADR and were seated immediately! There were even empty tables. Food and service was great as always. Tables filled and there were slot of people waiting when we left.

Went to mk for emh after. Arrived after fireworks. Park was mobbed!! Splash was down so everyone ran to btmrr and the wait shot up to 40 minutes. We grabbed fp's for a return time of 30 minutes later. Rode hm with about a 5 minute wait. Rode pirates witha 5 minute wait. Used our fp's for btmrr. Rode splash- postedwait time was 30 but it was actually less than 20.

Took the packed bus back after a long wait and broke into bohemian rhapsody with our section of th bus when it came on.

DHS toddy. I'll post updates from the park if my thread doesn't get lost. Didn't want to do rope drop every day this trip but it looks like I might have to...

Thanks for the crowd reports.

I have friends at WDW now and would love to hear how DHS is today. They are there too.

Hope you have a magical day!

Im at dhs right now. It's crowded but not mobbed. Got a tsmm fp at 9:25 with a return time of 11:45. They were all gone by noon. Rnrc and tot had 10 to 15 minute wIts this morning. The waits are longer now. Star tours was a 5 minute wait (10 posted).

Does anyone know where I can get an adult beverage (mixed drink ) here? High octane refreshments by studio catering company is closed.

You can get wine at Starring Rolls Cafe and Bud or Bud Lite at most stations, but the Catering Company is the only place I know to get mixed drinks outside of a TS restaurant (50's Prime Time, Mama Melrose, etc.)

Thanks for the updates!

Crowds are crazy..........I was at DHS Friday and the wait time posted for Star Tours was 60 MINUTES .........I guess they're all newbies. Star Tours is DEFINITELY not worth that wait (IMHO).

Wow we had a 5 minute wait. It went up to 20 after we got off because Jedi training was over. We also walked on to great movie ride around four. We saw people getting fast passes for rides that had very short waits. I don't get it.

We've got 20 minutes to kill before dinner at 50s ptc. It's our first time! We might go to jellyrolls tonight if were not too tired.

Sounds like the crowds at DHS were not bad if you are using good touring strategies.

How was yesterday?
