So it was a big weekend at Disney World to end September. First we saw the kick off of the “20th Annual International Food and Wine Festival” at Epcot and, boy, was it crowded. Easily that was the busiest I’ve ever seen the World Showcase.
Advice to annual passholders is to go during the week, if possible. Expect the weekend crowds to continue until the event concludes in early November.
“Pirates of the Caribbean” also reopened this weekend at the Magic Kingdom after an extended refurbishment. The lines weren’t too bad and moved a good clip. It was hard to tell exactly what was different. There appeared to be some cleanup and additions to the initial sections of the attraction. Everything else appears cleaner and smoother. It was nice to have it back after such a long break.
With the “Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Parties” going, Magic Kingdom hours were absolutely haywire – closing at 7 PM to regular guests on Friday and Sunday nights.
A lot of construction is going on at what was the “Richard Petty Driving Experience”. Much of the Disney World side of the former attraction has been well flattened out for what we understand will be more parking. For now, it’s an enormous eyesore.
Beyond all that, the weather is still warm in central Florida, so don’t sleep on the water parks. A wonderful time was had a very empty Typhoon Lagoon on Saturday. Almost no waits for any of the attractions and the water was still comfortable.
That is all for now. September is the best time to visit Disney. Get out there and enjoy it.
