Are POP busses usually crowded, even during slower times like early December?

    I was wondering about the POP resort busses.

    Are they usually always crowded with standing room only? How long are the lines for POP busses after Wishes?

    We're going down December 9-16, which I've heard is a slower time of year, so what can we expect regarding busses if we stay at POP.

    Lines for ALL buses are long right after Illuminations, Wishes, Fantasmic, Spectro. It's a fact that no matter which time of year you go, most people will leave a park after the climactic evening show.

    We were there in February and found the Pop busses to be fine. Late nights usually had people standing, but for the most part, you got on a bus. My only gripe is that for whatever reasons, Pop's buses seem to be the furthest pick up station from every park....but I'll take that over sharing a bus with another resort anyday :)

    All resort bus queues are swamped after the evening spectaculars or regular park closing. The deluxe resorts are smaller than the value resorts, so the queues tend to be shorter.

    The PC bus stops do tend to be about the farthest away from the park exit, except DHS for some reason.

    I have issues with leg injuries, so I always wait until I can get a seat on a bus. They run frequently during park closing, so the wait for a seat on the next bus isn't much longer than hopping on the current bus and standing. :)
