Other than the New Years Eve countdown screens there is nothing new or notable to report at the Disneyland Resort this week. So instead of the usual update I will be posting pictures of the heavy crowds around the resort this week. This was truly a 10 out of 10 week like we predicted. Here are what the lines looked like at the ticket booths around 10 AM on Thursday morning. I overheard a castmember telling guests the wait for tickets was over 1 hour long. Remember, you can save a ton of time by buying tickets online from Disney’s website or at almost any grocery market in Southern California.
Tomorrowland was gridlocked as crowds try to make their way between the narrow walkways. The area was made even more crowded because of the extended queues being used for Star Tours and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters on both sides of the land.
Crowds were slightly better in Disney California Adventure. Luigi’s Flying Tires and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree hovered around 60 minute posted wait times for most of the day. Radiator Springs Racers had a posted wait of 180 minutes but the attraction’s wait time doesn’t go any higher than that.
A shot of the crowd in Paradise Pier, next to California Screamin’. As you can see, these pictures show what a crowd level 10 day can look like in the parks. A proper Touring Plan is essential on days like this!
This is the last TouringPlans Disneyland Photo Update for the year! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. See you in 2013!
