Be warned!!!!!----February mid-week was traditionally a great time to go to Disneyland, as it was slow season and if you dressed warmly- you were set as the lines up would be reasonable. This is no longer the case. We went yesterday on a Thursday- parking lot looked fine but there were many buses entering. Park opened at 9 am, line ups were 2 to 3 hours long by 9:20 and fast passes were gone for the day or the lines ups for the fast passes were 30 minutes long. The line up for Thunder Mountain went down the park past Bear Jamboree- 3 hours long. The line up for Buzz lite year- went around the Tomorrowland restaurant- a good 2 hours or more. You pay for Disney so that you can go on the rides- with these line ups you would perhaps get 2 or 3 rides in a day and a few little ones like the merry-go-round.
The park now has a student promotion during this time period, and does not seem to be limiting the amount of schools visiting. The park was "swarming' with young people. Although happy for their day off from school, they all are going on the big name rides, there is no mix of visitors- leading to long wait times. They have over sold the bus tours to bring their revenue up. This spoiled the day for everyone- I am not paying to stand in line all day to do 3 rides in a day. This is unreasonable. I am not a money machine for Disney and that's how I felt.
We are quite unlikely to return with our family to this Disney Park- a shame. But it is becoming impossible to find a medium crowd day anymore. Our money will be better spent at another Disney Park or a competitor.
