How are folks feeling about the crowds Labor Day Weekend (Friday 9/2-Monday 9/5) vs. the weekend after (9/9-9/12)?
From the historical charts, I see that last year was 2/1, 3/2. 3/4, 2/3 for the first period and 3/2, 5/3, 3/4, 2/2 for the second, indicating that LD weekend was less crowded overall (huh) and neither was very crowded.
The prediciton for this year is 2/6, 5/8, 4/6, 6/7 for the first window and 2/6, 4/9, 3/8, 3/5 for the second. I assume they've ratcheted everything up a bit from last year due to the large number of attractions closed in DL and the 60th Anniversary bump effect. DCA has new Soarin' and the Frozen show.
Labor Day weekend is the last weekend for the 60th Ann. fireworks, so I'm wondering if that will bump LD weekend up even more and the weekend after will sag, or if the relative crowdedness (more crowded the second weekend) will hold true.
We do want both parks; Herself will want to ride Star Tours as often as possible; also Pirates and HM; she's also getting into RSR and Soarin' (oh--new film crowd bump?) and TSM.
