I wonder what explains this massive uptick for this time of year? More South American tour groups? Events/Conventions? Anyone have any insight?
Honestly, it looked like a smattering of each along with just more people taking vacations Stateside.
I saw the usual South American tour groups (and a few from Europe and one from the Middle East even), the convention centers at some of the resorts seemed a bit busier than normal, and of course - you just had more random people.
It was surprising how much the increase over the previous year things seemed.
Now some the perception of the uptick over the last several years can be related to FP+ pulling people out of queues; but, I usually try to keep a close eye on non-FP related lines, people in the streets, and the best barometer - the parking lots.
