Thanks for the help!
I can't see it getting swamped like the Orlando parks though.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
You could always go to the beach (Cocoa) before Disney. Busch is going to be really busy as well, just not as crowded as Disney. It's not as much of a destination park. But, they get overflow from Orlando too.
We thought about going to Tampa for a couple days, but I hate that drive around the holidays.
Magic Kingdom on Dec 28th last year was pretty busy too, but if you manage your time well you can still do most of the rides. We did all of the mountains twice.
Also, right after New Years is pretty slow. Since I'll be back in Florida, I'll go more often in Jan up to the spring break craze.
After leaving, I went to Cypress to *finally* get some laps on Starliner..."some" is putting it mildly, LOL. Since our Elysburg friends were busy with KFT, I'm not sure who ended up doing the re-design/construction....but they did better than I had anticipated. The outbound leg in the back seat is...."hyperaggressive". My back hurts...in the good way :)
Everything in Orlando will likely be packed from Dec 26-Jan 1. That's one of the few times you might actually see a park closed due to capacity.
The park has two wood coasters, a roller-skater, a spinning mouse, a junior sized inverted, and a kiddie metal coaster hybrid that is fun to ride as even an adult. There are several other rides as well as a cool Observation Tower that is like a floating platform. The water-ski show was back to where it once was and the gardens are beautiful.
I don't know what to say about Orlando besides the fact that the city will probably be swamped.
And Cypress Gardens is definitely worth a trip if you are looking to get away and still visit a theme park. They have a few medium sized coasters as well as Starliner.
And Rollergator, I know what you mean man. I went three times last week and every time the front loading station was closed and there were three trains running. Maybe they just want to keep it in good shape? They may switch out midway through the off season.
If you think things can't get worse it's probably because you lack sufficient imagination.
