[QUOTE=llama;1096069]Honestly, I hate to say it, but we’re beginning to re-think our WDW holidays in the future. The crowds are getting so ridiculous there isn’t very much enjoyment - why spend all that money to be pushed and shoved and wait in line - I’d rather go to Europe or on a cruise. That is why I’m not even considering our upcoming trip as a “Disney” one. We’ll go to the parks for a couple of hours a day to see and do the things we want, but I’m not going to spend my whole day fighting crowds. It’s too stressful.[/QUOTE]
We did rethink next year’s trip after reading Rowdy’s comment about the crowds and dealing with Food and Wine (shoulder to shoulder) crowds this past October. We were planning on celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in November next year (because I didn’t like how crowded Epcot was in October), but after reading several comments about the crowds, dh and myself decided to push it closer to our anniversary and go in September (our anniversary is actually in August, but have to get two kids off to college during that time!). We want to be able to absolutely “chill” and you can’t do that with crowds.
