Hello!

We are in Arizona and this is fall break week for my kiddos here. I've been nervous to go to DL on fall break, because I've head it can be crazy due to the masses of Phx people headed in. Can anyone there this week maybe any days 10-5-19 through 10-13-19 report on how crowd levels have been? If it's manageable, we're going next year during fall break to see the amazing Halloween decorations! Thank you so much!!!

    It’s Arizona people. Fall break is happening. My friend and her husband come Friday and will be there until Tuesday. I will hang out with them Monday and am mentally preparing for crowds.

    I went to asu, and when we had fall break tons of students would go to Disneyland (including me lol). At that time too many local schools had their fall breaks, so they would go to the parks too. That’s why this week is usually very busy

    Yeah, I’ve been watching the app in the last week and it looks much busier than it has been for quite a while. FPS snatched up, long wait times, and FP return times quite a bit later, even pretty early in the day. Rope dropping would be even more important than usual.

    most tracking sites show this Saturday 10/12 as a 10/10 packed. That's when we will be there. We are fine with crowds and manage well around Christmas time. Anytime there is a school break Disney will more than likely be more packed than not.

    We went on our spring break last year and it was busy but manageable. I feared fall break would be worse because of the decorations and nice weather! It seems like that may be true!

    This particular week next October will also be busy for AZ & UT fall breaks. We've been to DL before at this same time of year. It WAS busy. BUT if you get to the parks each day at rope drop, you can still have a fabulous time. And spend the extra $$ for Max Pass.

    We will be there next week. My kids are on Fall Break. We are in Colorado. We plan to rope drop and use Max Pass. I was hoping it wouldn't be too busy, but we've been before this time and we managed ok.

    We are here from AZ this week and it’s packed! Low summer crowds had us spoiled. Waiting 30 mins plus for rides like Small World and Monsters Inc. Trying to make the best use of MaxPass but the app seems to be having some issues right now which is frustrating.

    Omg yes! I haven’t been able to use mobile order today and I also couldn’t get a FastPass through the app. Super annoying!

    We went to the parks Saturday (10/5) through Tuesday (10/9). Honestly, I think Tuesday was busier than Monday, and Monday was busier than Sunday, which was about the same as Saturday.

    CM just confirmed MaxPass is down. You can’t even scan in a FastPass from your phone. You need your ticket or AP to scan in at an attractions. Lines at guest services are crazy... I’m sure with people complaining. We have MaxPass added on to our APs but I would be pretty mad if I paid for it for the day and it didn’t work at all.

    Oh dear. What a nightmare! Maxpass and mobile order are so key to navigating busy days!

    I am feeling less sad about being stuck at home with the sick kiddo. 😬

    Eeek. That sounds crazy. How often does Maxpass go down? We will be using it this summer for the first time.

    The weather is nice but it’s super crazy. They are actively shepherding people over to Tom Sawyers island. Which is really smart. But I’ve never in my life seen so many people on this island. 😆 I was talking to a custodial CM on the island who said she’s never seen so many people on the island in 19 years lol. She also said that today is the busiest she’s seen it all year.

    Ugh! I have friends driving in now for their first trip. I tried to talk them out of going this week once I saw how booked all the hotels on Harbor were. They're planning on "just winging it" when they get there. Words that make this DL over planner cringe.
