Here is the wait board at 10:30 am on Monday.


[IMG][/IMG]

Here is Main Street at 4pm on Sunday. I tried to get a pic of the different because I have never see it so crazy. But my girls didn't like the crowds and pushing from everyone trying to move that I was focused on getting them out of the crowds.

We had a great trip.
Went to goofy's this morning. Good food. Not busy. My girls loved it.

The sun came out today and it was nice. T shirt and capris weather. Sat and Sunday where cold. I'm glade that I packed for both.

We saw Aladdin, sleeping beauty , chip dale ,Pluto ,goofy , baloo, rafiki,
Stayed at the crown plaza
Did Priceline bid for $62 we paid to upgrade to a suite it was pricy ($79 a night) but worth it. It was huge!
It was two rooms connected. Our room was 2 queens with a full bathroom. Then the door to the kids room which had a pull out soda bed. Table with 2 chairs a coffee table. Fridge and another full bathroom.

The girls loved it and it was nice to not watch good luck Charlie all night

I couldn't believe it either. We went on Saturday 2/09/2013 and on Sunday. Saturday the park was crazy. The lines to get into places were some up to two hours long. We still had a great time. However I have been there during summer and this was busier.

We had the same experience Fri Feb 1 through Sunday Feb 3. Insane crowds and lines after lunchtime.

In the past year we've been over presidents week, spring break (inc Easter day) , labor day week (inc marathon day) . All those dates included weekends and were nothing like this past trip. It was enough to make us book another longer weekday trip in a few months just to get a few more quiet mornings in.

Must have been technical cuz they're testing the fountains now with no audio. Looks like something for the lunar new year and they've been moving the projections around on the water.

We have been in the parks the last 3 days and were surprised at how busy it was, especially yesterday and today. We got there at opening yesterday and it wasnt bad in the morning but got busier and busier as the day went on. We ended up heading back to the hotel early to rest, thinking it would be alot less busy today. We were there a little before opening and were surprised to see how many people were there! We wednt right back to peter pan and wait was aleady 35 minutes!
It was still an awesome trip, we were just surprised by the crowds, thinking we were going on a quieter weekend...

We were there this weekend and it was way more crowded on Saturday and Sunday than I was expecting. We took mid-day breaks both day, which is something we didnt do on our previous trips

So glad you posted this!! It is so helpful!! At what temp were capris comfortable in? Are you all wearing long sleeve shirts with your jackets? I can't seem to get a good grasp on what to wear with the temp. In Texas we are good in shorts in the 60's because of the humidity.
