    Oh, it'll be busy, but nothing like it will be the following week.

    I remember a couple of days after Christmas in '06 riding the Monorail to Epcot and seeing traffic on World drive at a standstill in all lanes because every park had closed due to capacity except for Epcot.

    Good times. Not to mention resort rates nearly double that week. We actually decided to give our wallet a break this time around and will be staying at the Hilton Downtown Disney. Advanced purchase rate of $109 a night. Right across the street from the buses, and eligible for EMH. Kinda hard to beat.

    Re: Bring in the Clowns

    I don't know, I'm finding this to scream more Six Flags than Walt Disney World.

    From Twitter this morning:

    Maybe The Three Little Pigs are a thrill for autograph seekers and Character Photo Op collectors, I just don't find it a Limited Time Magic Moment.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Then Six Flags Corp. would have needed to launch before Disneyland to make that happen. I understand why Disney is classifying The Pigs as rare sighting. Thank God they don't bring them out often.

    Hew, Dew and Lou, Eeyore, Bahloo and countless other rarities bring to mind Disney. Pigs 1800 England.

    Frankly I got more enjoyment out of Six Flags Old Man Character than I do the 3 Pigs, they can go back into hiding.

    Re: Bring in the Clowns

    I'm pretty sure they weren't aiming for folks like yourself. *wink*

    Either way, I do agree with the more obscured point of your argument that the Limited Time Magic thing is already seemingly in its death throes.

    Never really struck me as a great idea to begin with.

    I am not a fan of clowns. But I want to go see the whole thing before I really say YUCK! I just need a trip to find out for myself!

    I get that. You are one of the Guests that love to tally the characters you've met and have a photo op. Me I still have a hard time getting excited about the 3 Pigs in WDW. Now the Villains, I'd love to be down for that, likely wouldn't stand in line to greet them but having one night to see them wandering around would be great.
