Day one of Star Wars Weekends 2011 is almost in the books and it looks like despite the re-opening of Star Tours, wait times are similar to years past.
Star Wars Weekends are a good example of why we post the per park crowd levels as well as the park recommendations. Per park levels are an absolute rank of the wait times in a park. The park recommendations take into account other reasons to avoid a park. During Star Wars weekends, the Studios hosts an influx of Star Wars fans who flood the park to partake in the special events. Typically though, they do not increase wait times at the attractions. That is why we see per park crowds at reasonable levels, yet we recommend avoiding the Studios. Unless you are there for the event, the mass of people can make touring difficult.
