…never go during jersey weekI was there from Nov 4th to the 11th. I know it was Jersey week but I havent seen it that bust in I dont know when. It was almost unbearable to be there. The posted wait times were longer than advertised thanks to Lightning Lane.
…never go during jersey weekInteresting… I was there then and the crowds actually seemed better than Jersey Week 2022. We go mostly in the mornings and my son likes low-wait rides for the most part. (railroad, People Mover, etc.) so our experience may not be representative. I did note elsewhere that the lines for the Speedway and Barnstormer were getting up to 45 minutes by late morning / noonish, but Fantasyland overall didn’t have that 2022 scary claustrophobic feel to it. It seemed like lines for bigger ticket rides were high but not as bad as 2022. Thunder Mountain was around an hour at noon, Peter Pan was around an hour in the mornings (last year it was over 2 hours at rope drop, at least according to the CM at the entrance.)
One thing I’ve noticed is that I think more and more people are using crowd calendars. So there’s this weird effect where the days with the lowest predicted crowds feel packed, and vice versa. Anecdotal so maybe I’m imagining it, but I do wonder about the crowd calendar effect.
