Don't Mix Disney and Christmas

This is the absolute busiest time of the year @ Disney World. The parks are getting closed in the morning because they have reached capacity. Yesterday Magic Kingdom was closed for a while around 11:30 because it was full (around 70,000 people). A lady was complaining where I was working because there was a 2 hour wait for Space Mountain. She said that people need to find something better to do with their time than flood Disney World. I think she should take her own advice. The parks are busy to the point where I'm not allowed in them without buying a normal ticket because there isn't enough room for all of the paying customers. They're on track to break last year's record for total people in the parks in a single day. Now I just need to figure out what number that actually is. I want to go to EPCOT for new years eve, but I'm not allowed in; I'll probably try to sneak in that evening to watch the fireworks anyway. It's too busy and I don't like it. I didn't think I'd be back this time of year after visiting last year, and definately didn't think it would be because I actually work there.

Yeah I know what you mean. It wasn't that busy the Christmas my family went but I can imagine. For this safari tour thing the line seem to go on forever. It was so annoying the trees and such block your view of a lot of the line area giving you false hope that the line would end. I think we waited for around an hour and forty-five minutes. It was cruel and unusual torture I tell you! For most of the rides we got fast passes and so I can't really complain about the waits too much though. But I never did get to go on Space Mountain. *sulks momentarily* we didn't stay for new years but we did see the fireworks for Christmas. They were ok but I vastly prefer this fireworks show I saw in a town near Leavenworth. I is the best I ever seen. It had great verity in color and the types of fireworks. Not just bunches of those big nasty types that are in every big firework show and are super boring. But other then the scenery (which is perfectly ghastly!) I liked Florida. Mostly I like being able to swim in the ocean in the dead of winter. I mean in Washington the ocean's cold and not to pleasant in the mild of summer.
