I started attending about 6 years ago and the crowds were light. Walk- on for all rides, a 10-20 min wait for special character meet and greets. My last MNSSHP was 2 years ago and the crowds had increased to the point you had to wait for rides, character meet and greets were nearly 45 mins. There were even long lines for candy. I saw there was no more value in going anymore, there are to many people.
