Yup, we've been in the world since Saturday, leaving tomorrow. my husband and I have agreed we should never come back this week again - way too crowded

We normally come later in September, never again! Yesterday soarin was a WALK ON at 10 am. They actually left the back row empty - there weren't any guests to put in the seats

Just got back and had the same experience. Oops! I mean it's a horrible time to way too crowded!

I have to rethink our next trip becasue I said this was the last time I would take DD's out of school to go to WDW but, wow after the amazing week I might have to go back on my word.

We were there during this week also.....the only Fastpass we had to get was for Toy Story Mania....everything else was a walk on......the only times we waited at all was for character greetings.....we even went to 50s Prime Time at lunch (without an ADR) and got seated right away.

We'll be there Friday - I'm counting on low crowds after the summer in Disneyland! I didn't realize people would actually wait 240 minutes for a ride!!!

This is the best time to be in the World! We walked on Soarin at 3 in the afternoon! It was awesome. Most people aren't willing to take their kids out of school so early in the year so it works out.

How's the weather been there? Did you get the typical quick afternoon rain or has there been a more steady rain going on?

On our way home now - wow MK was crowded yesterday! Not summer/holiday break crowded, but much more so than I expected! Or maybe it just seemed so. It was almost hard to walk through Fantasyland, with so many strollers parked outside IASW. Love what we can see of the expansion! DD had fun looking for horse hoof prints in the sidewalk. Great trip, and oh so tired!
