Ok...who else is here? Is it just me or is it really crowded? Maybe I'm just used to Disneyland this time of year where it's relatively less crowded, or since it's my first time this actually is low crowds, but it just seems packed! Someone tell me I'm not crazy...?

I was able to make a FP+ for Space Mountain at 2:55 for 3 PM. With the football parade, I'd expect it to be busy today at MK.

I tried to change my ST at DHS at 3:30 and there were no more available slots...here's how my day went:

I was at Animal Kingdom this morning for EMH and flew through everything...KS, EE, PW, and Dino all in the first hour then I did FoW, Nemo, Mickey/Minnie, King Louie/Baloo, plus both trials and lunch and was out by 1! It was packed after the first hour, which I knew due to the EMH but I didn't care since I was done with most line attractions.

I hopped over to Studios and ToT, RnR and TSMM all had 70 minute waits, and I think GMR was 40! I did SR RnR then went over to Mama Melrose for my F! Dinner. That was terrible! I waited 20 minutes after my ADR time and people who checked in after me were taken way before! After a family walked in and was taken right back I went up and asked why I kept getting skipped and they magically had a table ready for me. Then the service was terrible! It took so long for everything that I missed my FP window for ST but they said if I showed the receipt it would be fine. Still, 1.5 hours for a solo diner is excessive!

Also, ToT is AMAZING!!!

We are here. I felt that way about MK Sunday night. PACKED. And I am used to summer crowds, too! But then last night at Epcot was awesome! 5 min wait for Soarin at the end of the night!!!

Here now and it is does seem busy (but this is my first trip so I have nothing to compare it to). However, we are having a BLAST and enjoying the warm, warm temps. We've been able to follow our schedule, so we've done everything we've wanted to so far. Good luck to all those still getting ready to come!

The "crowds" are not bad at all right now. . Took us 10 minutes for the Safari this morning and 15 for EE mid afternoon.

We are at Epcot tonight (waiting on the ADR), and it is not crowded at all.

A bit to humid for Feb, but loving the low 80's.

I've been so busy with a new job that my countdown snuck into the teens yesterday without me noticing! I also found out that I work with two other WDW fans yesterday! One is going the same week as me, and the other is trying to (we're teachers so we all have the same vacation week). Both know about FP+ but haven't bothered to figure out how to make them! I'm going to help them set them up at lunch some day.

I can mail it to a Disney resort, so I would only need the name of someone on the reservation -- wouldn't need any other info of any kind. Send me a PM if you want it!
Thank you!

Cassie I was there this week also solo, but came home yesterday.
Monday the 3rd I was at Epcot and the crowds were not bad at all. I didn't see much of a wait anywhere I was. I heard MK was horribly crowded and now I see your other post that AK and HS were too. I'm glad I was at Epcot.

Tuesday I found very hot and crowded at MK. I ended up leaving and going over back to the resort pool about 3pm. Buses were crowded for POR every day. I went back to MK at night and still crowded. I decided since Wednesday was another MK day for me, I would just catch the rides I wanted then.

Wednesday another gorgeous day and the crowd level was very low. Nothing more than 10 minute wait other than the main popular rides.
I really enjoyed my day and LOVED the Incredibles Dance Party. My favorite part is that although I was a fat over 50 year old, no one knew me so I danced anyway.
Found the rain showers interesting. Thought it was funny that people would get out the rain gear and the storms stopped.

Really enjoyed my days away and look forward to scheduling another get away in the future. Not sure how soon, but it's just nice to know that I love Disney so much that there will be another in the nearer than usual future.
Funny how it's taking me more than a dozen trips to really appreciate all that Disney offers. From rushing to relaxing. You really can make it what you want it to be.

Hope to hear your report back in and that there were more good times in your travels. Along with others report it.
I had great weather and feel so blessed as it's still only February.

peace!
