Never really thought about it but what I really notice in that pic is that there is no where to sit down ever.

That last picture makes my skin crawl. I would never want to be in a crowd like that!

Maybe that one lady is smiling because they just decided to go back to the room.

I grew up and lived in NYC most of my life so crowds are nothing new to me, but how do people even enjoy being in Disney with those kind of crowds?? You can barely see anything around you -- much less your own feet.

WOW at those crowd pictures! I don't even think I'd have a good time if it was that crowded!

Agreed. Shopping crowds at Christmas freak me out and thinking about being in Disney with this type of crowd is even worse!

I like my space

Had a HS classmate post on FB yesterday that she was arriving at MK at 1:40 and surprised to see it closed.

Then she posted again from EP at 3:00 surprised to see a 120 minute wait for Soarin.

Then she posted again an hour later surprised to see Disney had this thing called FastPass and how it's unfair that people who get there early get the FastPasses and they should also have them for people who show up late.

I just shook my head. I can't imagine paying premium prices to go this time of year, when it's the most crowded, and have just no clue at all. And she's probably the norm.

+1. I'd go to WDW but not stepping into the MK that day. Between stepping around people not realizing that the TV parade filmed in November (Disney needs to make it clearer to those people) and the throngs of bodies, it took us an hour o get to the castle the one year we did it. Never again.
