Question any lock-outs today due to capacity??

Those of you at the world now, have you heard if MK or Epcot went in to lock-out mode today due to capacity?

We hope to be in MK tomorrow but won't arrive till about 11 AM. Kinda concerned as it gets closer to the big day.

No lockout seen at DHS when we left around 1 PM. Our sons went to MK today around 2 PM and got in just fine.

No reports of any closures on the usual websites today.

was at MK today. It was busy after 11:00. I wouldn't think anything near park capacity though. It's definitely busier the week after Christmas. Today's crowd resembled more of an 8 or 9 as opposed to a packed 10.

The kennels appear to have a lockout in effect


Have fun, I'm sure you'll have crowds, but I hope you dont run into any lockouts, but it appears the crowds have come out of the woodwork reading some of the threads recently. Just go with the flow if you run into that situation and dont let it upset you

This past Monday myself and two of my good friends from the Orlando area went to the Magic Kingdom just after 7:00 PM and while it was busy and etc, we didn't have any problems getting in.

Historically, most capacity closings take place between the 25th and 31st. Of course, past performance is no guarantee of future results!

1) Mrs Rusty locked me out of the cookie cupboard today.
2) She said I reached my capacity.
3) Does this count?

On my way into Epcot today around 12:30, I glanced at the board with the wait times. Spaceship Earth was 50 minutes.

As another harbinger, at Epcot today JIYI was posted at 30 minutes!

The good news is that overall the parks were still "do-able" today. In the first 2:30 we rode all three major Future World attractions and had a 2nd set of Soarin' FPs in-hand. There wasn't any problem finding a seat at Season's food court at 11:30 either.
