    I'm wondering what kind of lines to expect when we come Oct 22-Oct 29. We plan to be at each park before opening, but do we really need to rush to the most popular attractions? Just want to know what to expect. Thank you!

    Hi, Shelly! If the crowds on your first and last day were like Justin Bieber, then the crowds on the days in the middle would be more akin to Milli Vanilli. Suffice to say, crowds will be a bigger factor on your first and last day there but not so much in between. 

    You have the right idea in arriving at the parks before they open. The first attractions you visit should be the attractions that are the most popular. Otherwise, if you try to return to them later in the morning through early evening, you'll find much longer wait times. For the first hour that the parks are open, many of the attractions, including some of the most popular, will have wait times of 15 minutes or less. Many will even be walk-ons.

    Save the less popular attractions - and attractions that have higher capacity - for the peak times during the day.
