    Default Advance Scouting for i15

    Been here all week. Here's the skinny.

    We have seen zero tour groups here all week. None. No Brazil. No cheerleaders. Nothing.

    The Yeti is down. Or in he words of the cast member at the entrance, "Uh, she's there!" She?

    Crowds have been manageable. Even at Food and Wine. Even at MNSSHP.

    Any questions?

    I jinxed it. MK is packed today. 35 minute wait for pirates at 4:30 ? Over an hour for any A ticket rides. Yikes.

    You must have been at different parks, on diffrent days, than I was. We were there Sat to Thurs and I thought it was very crowded in the parks we were at.Saw many tour groups, but they were much smaller and manageable. On Saturday, Epcot was so crowded, and visitors so outrageous we left.

    That's very possible. We may have been playing leapfrog with the crowds previously, because today it was oppressive! Gulp.

    It was one of the busiest Fridays I've seen in a while. The wait times finally got back to normal around 7. We went to leave right after the parade around 8:30 ish and both monorails were closed. Yuck!

    I'm hearing that this is "bike week" at WDW and park attendance will be high. Especially at Epcot today.

    I think so too, but the weirdest thing is that was the shortest waits other than Storytime with Belle. We waited about 15 minutes for Journey of the Little Mermaid. Maybe 5 for Ariel but I think people didn't realize she was doing her meet & greet.
