We were there just 5 weeks ago [10/23 - 10/31] and IG was a non issue for us. In fact, even with the local IG construction for the the new Guest Services and Ticketing windows we breezed in all of the time. They had more security checkpoints, a "new" no bags line, and more tap-stiles. Things may have changes since then, but we'll be back in 33 days for marathon weekend so we'll see how the experience is then! IMO incoming gondolas have a minimal impact on crowd volume for IG. The real congestion has been and will continue to be a full Friendship Boat arrival when you are entering.When the gondolas were announced this was my fear. We love staying at BC & BWI. The ease of walking into Epcot is a major reason. This saddens me so much. We have a trip planned for January 2020 and I’ve been worried about the impact of the gondolas at IG. When we booked, we decided to go ahead with BWI & if it’s a nightmare & no longer peaceful & easy entering thru IG, our next trip might have to be at a different area resort, possibly a MK resort .
