Duffy plays a pretty big role. I will say that he is more of a slave driver than one might expect.

We've been at WDW since last Wed. and have used his park recommendations the whole time. We have barely had to wait at all! Crowds were around 5 the first few days we were here, but Saturday was an 8 and today a 7. Still had no problems with having to wait much (as we also used fast passes). So thankful for Easy WDW!

Has anyone gone mid morning to his recommended parks and had success with low/moderate crowds?

It does get really busy the later you go, but some days it is still doable. We got to Epcot at 12 the first day because we had just got into town. With fast passes for Soarin', we still had almost no wait on anything else and were able to do a lot. That day the crowd level was only a 5 though. The past two days we got the park around 9:15, and it was busy. (crowd level was 7 and 8) Toy Story already had a 70 min. wait, but we got fast passes (they were for 2:40 already--that early). Someone had given us passes to Rockin' Roller Coaster, so we didn't have to wait but it was already an hour at that time. The other rides weren't bad though (like Star Tours, Little Mermaid, Great Movie, etc). So anyway, you can definitely tell a big difference when you get there later...we just had to make it work by using fast pass. (If I could get my husband and son to get up and out earlier, I would, but they aren't big fans of getting up early on vacation)

Yep! we used it for our September trip and he was right on. We are not Rope Drop vacationers (we usually meander into most parks around 10am or 11am) and never waited in line more the 5 min our whole trip. And the day we went against his reconmendations we knew what to expect and he was dead on with those too.
