We have been to WDW probably 8-9 times in the last 5-6 years and we absolutely love it. We do want to experience DL at least once so this seems like a great time, but the thing that is making me hesitate is that the DL conference is in July. We are a non-peak time family (always take the kids out of school for a week so we can go at non-peak times) and truthfully, our trip this Sept to WDW was pushing it as far as crowds go. So, how busy is DL in July? I mean, I know it will be busy, but are we talking 90-120 minute waits for everything? Or is it doable if you get up early, hit rope drop and use fastpasses? Any info or personal stories would be greatly appreciated!


ETA: The conference is at the Disneyland Hotel, with a conference rate of $174 so a pretty good deal!
We also only do WDW during off season but did DL last July. Really was not bad at all. Had some wait but with the nice weather it was not bad. Would do it again.

In the past members have reported that the period in August just before blockouts lift can be more crowded than usual. That's not the case in July.
