[QUOTE=Tiggerific;984195]disneylovers5 and asp8tis,
I’d appreciate a quick status post when you get back…not a trip report or anything, just a response to the question “how crowded was it?” We leave on the 25th and are hoping that many schools across the country are starting early!![/QUOTE]
Just got back tonight. The crowds were heavy, but manageable. We definitely needed to use fastpass in order to experience major attractions. Soarin’ & Test Track were up to 80-100 min. waits in the stand-by lines at mid-afternoon. Fastpasses for those were also gone by early or mid-afternoon. I think crowds will dwindle significantly after this week. We checked into POR with a room-only ressie on the 15th, the day before free dining started. We needed to check-in again on the 16th to get our new cards and parking pass. They had so many people doing the same thing that they set up 4 tables in Boatwrights divided up by last initials where you could go in the morning to pick-up your new materials. They told my friend that besides the several hundred that they had picking up new materials in Boatwrights, they also had 700 families checking in that day! :ohmy: The pool was ridiculously crowded last night. I have a feeling there were a lot of people checking out today in order to get back for school starting. Overall, we had a great week and were able to manage the crowds and do almost everything that we wanted to.
