    Crowds the week of 4/12

    Hey guys,
    I am leaving to go to the World on 4/14 and I was just wondering what the crowds are going to be like?? This is my first trip going in a busy time of the year so I want to know what to expect.

    Re: Crowds the week of 4/12

    I don't want to scare you, but prepared for heavy crowds and long waits. On april 7th the Magic Kingdom had to close its gates because it reached capacity. Disney underestimated the crowds and have changed the Magic Kingdom park hours for the next week to 9 am -12 pm and extra magic hours every night. So I think the crowds will go strong throughout the week. Im heading down on the 17th so for your sake and mine I hope I am flat out wrong. Recession?! What Recession??!!!

    That makes me happy that the Parks are filled.

    I'm heading down in late June and I hope the crowds are steady (so that there's good, solid business for Disney), but not insane like this week.

    The weeks before and after Easter are always busy, and this year does not seem to be an exception.

    Here is an article on how the Disney parks got to busy they were temporarily closed:

    Can anyone tell me what the Magic Kingdom crowds are like right now? I was seriously contemplating going down for the day tomorrow.

    Epcot was comfortable yesterday. The rides were still crazy, but the crowd levels was good. Sorry I can't help you out with MK.

    Re: Crowds the week of 4/12

    I have the option of going on Monday instead and I'm thinking I might take it. Tomorrow is the sweet Extra Magic Hours until 3am, which would be great if we were resort guests, but we're just driving down for the day. I'm afraid the park will be packed. However, tomorrow is supposed to be perfect weather and Monday is supposed to have isolated Thunderstorms. So many factors.
