So me and 100,000 of my closest friends all decided to go to DLR yesterday (1/2/2012)... Was anyone else there? IT WAS NUTS. --M&F structure was completely full, as were all other surface lots. All parking was directed towards Gardenwalk. It took us 30 minutes to get from Ball Road to even turn left on Katella. There was supposed to be a shuttle from Gardenwalk, but the CM did not know where it was. So me and 100,000 of my closest friends walked altogether to the Harbor entrance. --It took us 40 minutes to ORDER FOOD at the Plaza Inn since apparently EVERYONE was craving fried chicken after the parade, but man, that fried chicken was GOOD. --Foot traffic was jammed up between the entrance of DL and the end of main street for 20 minutes when the parade ended at around 6pm. You. Could. Not. Move. Everyone was suprisingly polite and I only saw a few people rude enough to "cut across" the vertical traffic going down mainstreet. We followed 2 angry looking people with a giant stroller so the walk was easy. When in doubt, follow these kind of people to pave the way for you. --Small World wait was like 50 minutes throughout the day. --Indy was 85 minutes, Star Tours--forget about it. Even Buzz was 35 to 40 minutes. Thank goodness for the Tiki Room and Autopia --Dole Whip line was at least 20 minutes. By the time my husband got a Dole Whip, the tiki show was over (he started waiting before the Tikis outside were even chanting). We went to City Hall at the end of the night to collect our $12 for Gardenwalk parking. CM did not offer us instant fastpasses, but did offer them to people behind us in line collecting their $12 I wasn't offended (well kind of) since we were leaving anyway, but hey man, be consistent! As in, offer to compensate ALL pissed off people equally! Whatever...I overheard from the CM that the instant fastpasses do not work on Star Tours. So these being given at 11pm = kind of pointless, as everything "major" was about a 30 minute wait at that point. We had an overall good time, but I will NEVER go on or near New Years again!
