Dad knows Disney World Crowds!
I know some of you out there wonder …
Does Dad really know what he’s talking about?
You read all these other sites that say things that Dad doesn’t entirely agree with. In fact some of you have sent in questions all panicy asking about this week or that because you just read somewhere that a billion Chinese come to Disney World every year on the sixth week of Juvebember or something.
I keep saying, trust me … Dad knows Disney World crowds.
Several weeks ago, Dad got a question about Jersey Week at Disney World. The nice person, who didn’t leave their name, asked nicely if Dad knew what he was talking about because this nice person had been reading on all the Disney sites about the hoards that descend on Disney World the first week of November. Dad’s great crowd calendars proudly proclaimed the crowds as light the first week of November. Surely Dad had it wrong, or just forgot, or even worse, didn’t know about Jersey week.
So hey, last week was the first week in November, the infamous “Jersey Week”, how did Dad do? Let’s find out.
Dad got a note today from a loyal fan named Ashley (seems like there are more and more of those every day, thank you). Here’s what she said …
I just got back from New Jersey Week at Disney World and I can report that you and you alone, were absolutely correct in predicting low crowd levels for that entire week. My son and I were able to ride Expedition Everest 24 times, Mission to Mars 10 times, Splash Mountain 20 times and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror upwards of 10 times (those were our favorites but we also rode almost everything else in all four parks) with virtually no waiting. The hysteria over New Jersey Week and the prediction of hour long waits and other assorted doom and gloom on other websites seems downright ridiculous at this point. It makes me wonder if any of those people have actually ever even been to Disney World during that week.
Keep up the good work, Dad, and take a bow and give yourself a big pat on the back because YOU WERE RIGHT AND THEY WERE WRONG.
Thanks again for all of the advice,
Pardon me while I fire off a short note to Ashley,
First let me say thank you for the feedback. Confirmation is always a good thing. I’m glad you had a wonderful time and happy that I could play a small role in it. I’m a bit jealous you got to ride all those rides so many times (not really, because most of those rides make Dad sick). Keep in touch. I’d love to hear your stories.
Like I keep telling you …
