So I just shortened my June trip plans by a day and a half. Previously, I was generous with my HS and EP park time, but now have 3 days to split between them. I’m unwilling to cut MK (2 days) and AK (1 day). I have non-hopper tickets.
My thought is to do HS-HS-EP, with the idea that if we do ROTR the first day, I would just swap the 2nd day to EP. Without the shows in HS I think I’d rather have 2 days in EP. But if we don’t get ROTR the first day, we can try again the second morning and then make a call on going to HS with hopes of one last ROTR chance that afternoon or just swapping to EP. Or maybe we decide that we actually do want 2 days in HS anyways.
This middle “flex” day described above will be Memorial Day, and Touring Plans shows decreased crowds that day. I have a hard time believing this:
Also, I’m sure that some percentage of locals with that day off will come to WDW. I’m thinking those doing this would most likely go to Epcot for shopping/dining. But maybe not. Maybe this number is so small it shouldn’t matter to me anyways.
Soooooo… I’d like some predictions from my Liner friends:
- Will Memorial Day really be a “good” crowd day, relatively speaking?
- Do you think locals will bump crowds at HS or EP more than other parks?
