Magic Kingdom Update: The Most Crowded Week of the Year (Part 1)

Massive crowds, long lines, and higher ticket prices are very common during this time of the year in the Central Florida area. That being said, the vast majority of Guests visiting the area's theme parks are still happy to be able to escape their daily lives to enjoy quality time with their family and friends.
As you'll see in this photo-report, even attractions that usually have minimal waits (such as Mickey's PhilharMagic, the PeopleMover, and even the Swiss Family Treehouse) now have very long wait times.


Welcome to the Magic Kingdom:
