I agree hence why i said most park hours. Rope dropping is nothing new. Hitting up rides last 30-40 minutes is nothing newbut as you point out the longerhours 100% helped. Before i had my daughter and would be in parks a longggg time ago. You were able to walk on most of the non top tier attractions or have like 15-20 min waits for most of the big ones as the parks were a ghost town at times.I remember walk ons at park open and also late at night when regular park hours were longer.
