It wasn't bad. Resort guests get in at 8, but we didn't get in until 9. Still only a 15 minute wait. No Express access, as far as I can tell, which is OK because it's worth it to see the queue anyway. Like I said... you can tell how busy it will be by looking at the rate changes of the hotels.

There is an express "lane" built in to the queue, but they don't have any intention of using it in the near future from what I'm told. Perhaps when the popularity dies down so it doesn't get overwhelmed.

Is that the same queue they use for the "castle tour" option? I've heard the tour (where you basically experience the queue and preshows without actually getting on the ride at the end) mentioned online but I wasn't sure exactly how they would do it.
