    I wish these were more accurate… went last night based on this site, “yup, packed…” “Best Bet” day. It was so bad, I left after 1.5 hours there (toughed it out and managed one ride). Week night, late, but crowd unbelievable. And people don’t leave. (They were packed in Hogsmead area at 6:pm…waiting for new light show that doesn’t start until 9:pm!)
    Just rammed. Never called it in a park before. But, $100 some ticket, $25 parking, for 1 hour then exit….wow.

    Just checked again, based on report. Line going in, and one big line going out. Turned and left.
