Magic Kingdom, Epcot: When They Are Busy... (Part 1)
...you should go somewhere else. Ah, so true. When the Magic Kingdom and Epcot (two of the world's busiest theme parks) get really busy, it may negatively affect your vacation, and it surely will make you feel overwhelmed. After all, having to deal with massive crowds in a theme park is not really in most people's dreams. Of course, most people should expect that they will have to stand long lines if they choose to come during the last few weeks of December or if they visit Orlando during Spring Break.
Anyway, that introduction sums up exactly what you will be seeing in this update: photos of Magic Kingdom and Epcot, along with people, people, and even more... people. Let's start with the Magic Kingdom:
Here we go...
Question: What should people do to get a relief from this crowded situation? The sign in the middle of Main Street answers the question:
Even balloons had a small place to move around:
A little relief:
15 minutes for an attraction? That's not bad at all!:
Unfortunately, the attraction we are talking about is the Swiss Family Treehouse. A walk-through attraction:
The situation in Adventureland:
Pirates of the Caribbean had a 65-minute line that even ran OUTSIDE the huge indoor queue building:
Ahoy, Mateys! Rough seas ahead!:
Going to Frontierland:
The same for Splash Mountain:
More Frontierland crowds:
The Diamond Horseshoe restaurant was open after 5 p.m.:
The situation should be better in Tomorrowland! Nope...
Stitch's Great Escape! had a line. Unbelievable you say. Yes...
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. 85 minutes:
The line for the TTA PeopleMover:
Enough is enough, right? We should move to Epcot. That park is twice as big as the Magic Kingdom, and will therefore be much less crowded. Totally wrong:
The newer, turnstile-free entrance has now been replaced with a traditional entrance. Once again:
Here we go again:
Line for Spaceship Earth:
60 minutes. I have never waited more than 1 minute to ride it (which is a masterpiece, by the way):
The end of the extended line:
Some of the park's wait times:
The busiest rides:
Well, Soarin' was bad too:
