Either these times are wrong, or the park is definitely not packed, or even remotely crowded.
I looked before I posted. Fp for tsmm gone and wait was over an hour. Rnrc had a long wait too.

Glitch in the app again perhaps?

Yesterday, MK was the ONLY 'Not Recommended' park on the easywdw crowd calendar.

Just returned yesterday from the World and had an amazing week! We did not feel like it was crowded at all and it was Jersey Week, F&W and the Marathon. World Showcase was the only place we felt crowded but we knew that going in since it was the end of F&W. Lines got a little long for the popular rides in DHS but we had FP+ for TSM, RnRC and ToT. We really had a wonderful time and got on everything more than once. Everyones perceptions of crowded is different though. We were also spoiled with AMAZING weather and it reminded me again as to why I love going in November.

There was no free dining the week we were there so I expected it to be much much more crowded than it ever was.

For comparison, we were at DHS for the better party of the day last Sunday. That was during the tail end of Jersey week and the middle of the Veteran's Day holiday weekend.

I'd describe the crowds that day as moderate to moderately high. They were quite reasonable at gate drop, but got heavier as the day wore on. As way of comparison, the Fastpass- for RNR ran out around noon, but as of late afternoon there were still fastpass-(for evening return) at TOT. Crowds were thick but manageable in the Streets of America section when the Osborne Lights came on around 6.

We didn't bother with Toy Story Mania, because we and our kids don't see what the cult obsession with that attraction is. When it comes to game attractions, we feel MIB at Universal is still one of the better overall, since you are competing not just with your group but also another vehicle and can cause highly entertaining mayhem for the latter if you know where to aim.

Nobody is calling you a liar. *I* was merely pointing out what MIGHT have caused there to be crowds in the parks you visited according to Josh's crowd calendar.

Nobody is calling you a liar.

We are just trying to match the subjective perception of the park being packed to some objective measures, like wait times at the most popular attractions.

Goodness, what is a crowd to one, is not to another. Crowds are Christmas week, etc.

More crowded than you are used to in September, sure but with research you should expect that.

Oh course in September one is either melting or soaked by rain.

Paired with the fact that other people who are there NOW, are reporting the direct opposite. Nobody is calling you a liar, just that your definition of crowded is subjectable to what other people call crowded

Exactly. What seems crowded to you would seem empty to someone who goes during the summer or Christmas week. No one is calling you a liar, but are trying to put it into perspective.

Sorry you are finding it too crowded for your liking. Maybe you can take a peak at EasyWDW and see which parks to do on what days for the rest of your trip? I've found Josh to be spot-on with his park recommendations.

We got here at 8 for a 9 opening. Went straight to JTA. DS was able to be in the first show at 9:20. By the time the show was over we got to TSA by 9:45 and FP were already gone with the standby line at 105 mins. I have just not experienced crowds this heavy in Sept. do I was not prepared . We will see how the rest of the week goes.
Are you staying on site and are you using your magic bands and the fast pass + to make fast passes?

Toy Story is crazy busy first thing in the am. If you go back another morning it should be your first stop. Everything else is pretty easy.

FPs for TSMM are always gone early these days, and it wouldn't be that unusual for the posted wait time to fluctuate between over an hour to a little less. On a very crowded day, that wait would be a lot longer.

Exactly. I go every year during Thanksgiving week. A lot of people say it's extremely crowded, but to me, I find it pretty manageable. We are just trying to figure out the common ground here.

DHS closes early tomorrow (at 4, most likely for a private party) so it may have drawn extra guests today.
