Disney's Magic Kingdom closed for two hours on Christmas day as the park reached capacity. Disney reports that their hotels are nearing capacity for the new year, while Universal reports that their hotels are sold out.

Anyone know what the parks might be like on Jan 4th and 5th? Hopefully, people will be heading back to their homes in preparation for the return to school and the parks won't be too bad?
We went last year from the 1st of Jan. through the 5th and it was packed everyday! Although by the 5th it was slowing down, it was still crazy!

He did say Sea World wasn't too bad though, and managed to get about 8 rides on Kraken. He was going to IOA today.
I would much rather go to the Florida parks before or after the Holidays!!!
Are the California parks this crowded during the Holidays?

Two words - "Off Season". There is no better time to go to the Florida parks.
I've had the same experience with the So. Cal. parks, but not quite as extreme.
How do you know when it is? Just watch air & hotel rates. When they're low, it's the off season.

I never knew so many people visit Walt Disney World parks on Christmas day! I find it amazing that MK had to close its doors for two hours. I always thaought that parks would be dead on Christmas day, but I was completely wrong.
I am happy to see the attendance slowly rising in Orlando. Hopefully they can continue this trend and start making money.

As soon as Six Flags Magic Mountain starts to treat guests nicely and stops adding these coasters that are never open, then will Cedar Point not need to feel the need for more. Therefore, more money will be spent on ValleyFair and everyone in Minnesota w
