Post-Labor Day crowds make waits for Harry Potter attractions tolerable

Welcome to post-Labor Day Orlando, where vacationing families have worked their way home, the kicks have gone back to school and there is more elbow room at all Central Florida theme parks.

So do the "kicks" go back to Shoe University or what?

Gringott's today was listed 45 mins shortly after opening, but didn't seem to grow too much after that...the train ride seems to have such great capacity that waits I've seen are 10-15 mins. most of the time.

I am *so* trying to not give spoilers. Maybe we need a specific thread with WARNINGS posted all over it?

I was a total Universal whore up until my last visit in early 2011. I haven't been since, and I've lived in Orlando for a year. I think it's because I would miss out on the exclusivity of staying on-property. I think this might finally be the year, but I'm in no hurry.

With all the single-rider lines and high-capacity attractions, it's a place I don't mind stopping by for a couple hours even on a Saturday (note I didn't say miidsummer Saturday). Walk a couple miles (good for the health benefits), have a few 10-minute waits, get in 3-5 rides we've already ridden dozens or hundreds of times in MiB and Mummy, maybe catch a couple of the newer ones. Rock'It is rapidly turning into a steel version of Gwazi though...what is UP with that thing?
