    With the Economy the way it is in 2009, what do you think the crowds will be like starting the weekend of Memorial Day and ending later that week?

    Hey Leigh that is a tough one.  I would have thought the economy might have had an impact on crowds too, but just two weeks ago during spring break, MK hit a level 4 (maximum capacity)!  So it looks like people are still heading to WDW.  Someone suggested that many more Floridians are taking advantage of the park in their home state so if that is true, you truly might find Memorial Day to be very crowded.  When we go in the summer months I just go knowing it's probably going to be crowded.  With that in mind I try to maximize my time the best I can, and we always take advantage of EMH's and Fast Passes.  One suggestion I would make is to be sure and get the park hopper option, that way if one park is super crowded you can leave and head over to one that might be smaller crowds that particular day.  Thanks again for the great question, and I hope you have a wonderful vacation.
