Slightly related to this
When we visited MK in July the crowds seemed far bigger than when we last visited
I remember MK as a child and in our last holiday as being a beautiful, tranquil place etc. Yes it had queues for popular rides but apart from that you would walk around and feel that it was a really pleasant place to be
Maybe the park is a victim of their own success etc. But in July certain areas were just swamped with people. Many just sat on the floor eating food or resting etc it was so busy.
I looked around me and thought this is more like Blackpool Pleasure Beach on a busy day than Magic Kingdom! (UK posters will know what I mean)
On days like that it certainly seems to lose the magic effect and just seems manic instead
Just my opinion and observation
