We spent the day today at IoA with some family that was visiting. As we approached WWoHP (The only reason for our visit, lol) we were told that be had to get a return time ticket to even enter the area. We got to the park less than 15 mins from opening (9am) and our return time was 11:50 to 12:50.
We waited on line for our pass for about 15 mins. When our time came, we entered and then waited for usual 45 mins for Journey. The whole area was a crowded as it normally is, but the rest of the park was near empty.
I know today is a holiday, but this is the first time I’ve seen them use this process. My family (whose first time it was) was not happy. Also, once you leave, you can’t come back without a pass. By 2pm the return time was past 5pm.
We would have spent more time there today but we were starving. There is only one eatery in WWoHP and my kids weren’t up for ribs or shepherd’s pie (or the insane line)
Sorry if this has been discussed before. Its been about 4 months since we visited WWoHP so I don’t know if this is something they have been doing for awhile.
I do not like it. Not one little bit. I can understand return times for the rides, but we had planned to spend a lot more time exploring the area with our family today then we were able to.
