Continuing from. As I recall, it’s about 10:30am on April 4th 2012.
We’ve already got the extended queue for it’s a small world down here towards Columbia Harbour House.
But not Haunted Mansion…yet.
Could be worse in Frontierland.
Pecos Bill is completely out from scrims. This is what it looked like as recently as last week.
And now this.
The whole building looks fantastic.
Not sure what takes so long. Pecos was originally behind scrims in early June 2011, so the whole process took about ten months.
A 65 minutes posted wait with FASTPASS return at 12:45pm – 1:45pm at Splash Mountain at precisely 10:42am.
Poor Winnie the Pooh and Tigger have been kicked out of just about every meet and greet location possible over the past couple of months. They’ve met in Fantasyland to the right of Mad Tea Party. And Fantasyland across from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. They’ve met guests at the Flag Pole in Town Square and in Tour Guide Gardens in between City Hall and the Chamber of Commerce. At the moment, they’re in Jessie and Woody’s Spot near the exit to Splash Mountain.
Which pushes Jessie and Woody out here to the left of Splash Mountain in direct sunlight.
And everyone waiting in line. On the plus side, the high today was only around 87 degrees.
The splash on Splash Mountain doesn’t come during the drop.
It comes after.
Pirate Goofy continues to meet here further to the right of the entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean.
20 minute wait at Pirates of the Caribbean. For those saying, “How can this be a recommended day?” It was 40 minutes today (Friday) at the same time. Splash was 80 minutes and Haunted Mansion was 35.
Just one more example of what makes Disney, Disney.
More stroller parking narrowing walkways in Adventureland.
Busy enough that people seemed willing to watch Tiki Room. If that ain’t desperation, I don’t know what is.
Just before 11am, we have a 45 minute posted wait at Jungle Cruise.
With both FASTPASS and standby lines out the door.
Lunch was at the newly refurbished Sunshine Tree Terrace. Pictures and review of that from a couple days ago here.
After lunch, the queue for Aladdin’s Magical Carpets is out here somewhere.
Just after 11:30am, we have a standby wait of 65 minutes at Jungle Cruise. With it issuing this many FASTPASSes, it just can’t keep up with demand with the relatively low capacity.
Looking up through Adventureland, our options for short waits are diminishing.
Really anything above 25 minutes at Pirates of the Caribbean is a lot.
No wait to purchase a Park Pal though.
Looking across Frontierland toward Liberty Square.
Not working too hard on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The end of May isn’t too far away.
At 11:35am we have a standby wait of 75 minutes with FASTPASS out to 3:10pm.
What is this, freakin’ England?
Keep left? With the 12:30pm Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade about 30 minutes away, this must somehow help traffic flow in one way or another. It extends all the way through Frontierland.
Still no lettuce, tomato, cheese, or anything else on the Diamond Horseshoe sandwiches. Skip it.
Also to help crowd movement, we have the kiosks that are ordinarily along the walkway here moved over behind Liberty Square Market.
Making them even less popular. It’s weird how there can be 20+ people in line for a Turkey Leg over in Frontierland and rarely anyone in line here at Liberty Square. Maybe it just doesn’t feel right.
Liberty Square Market is offering a Baked Sweet Potato. You may remember we sampled the Baked Potato and Corn on the Cob back in October.
We’ve got the extended queue going at Haunted Mansion here at 11:45am.
Courtesy the easyWDW helicopter.
Disney has covered the windows that overlook the Skyway construction where the Rapunzel Meet and Greet is purportedly being constructed.
We are so lawless.
44 minutes longer than I’m willing to wait.
A 60 minute posted wait for Peter Pan’s Flight with FASTPASS out to 5:15pm.
Winnie the Pooh out to 2:15pm around 11:50am. FASTPASSes are still distributed here to the right of the entrance to Mickey’s PhilharMagic.
A 40 minute wait and more extended queue at Snow White’s Scary Adventures.
60 at Pooh, making our 15 minute actual wait early this morning look much better. It’s just before noon.
As mentioned at some point in time, Dumbo hasn’t had a proper wait time displayed since it debuted in its new location last month.
I wonder if they bought this from Wait Times On A Stick. You’re looking at an hour-plus here.
The line for Barnstormer starts here. Like all the way out here.
Making our one minute wait this morning look real good.
Yeah, that’s a line.
Another helicopter shot in Tomorrowland where it’s gotten much busier.
A green flag and extended queue at Tomorrowland Speedway.
The two FASTPASSes we’re currently holding.
I used the Space Mountain FASTPASS at 12:16pm, or 11 minutes after the FASTPASS “expired,” but still within the 12:20pm grace period with no questions asked. I didn’t actually ride though. That would be ridiculous.
This even less popular Turkey Leg Cart is operating in Tomorrowland to help battle crowds. Even with the sign out in front of it, no one really buys anything here.
Green extended queue flag at Astro Orbiter.
Cool Ship has added a churro and corn dog to its now robust menu.
Good luck with those.
Quite the hot dog spread offering small, very basic hot dogs for $5.00.
You may recall from the Taco Hot Dog post that you can order one of these hot dogs from The Lunching Pad without the chips for $2.00 less. That’s a lot more dog for not a lot more money.
More extended queue flags at PeopleMover.
The crazy long extended queue at Buzz Lightyear.
With a posted wait at 70 minutes and FASTPASSes more than an hour and a half out, which is virtually unheard of. It’s about 12:20pm here and FASTPASS is at 1:55pm.
The scene in Tomorrowland with about ten minutes until parade time.
It’s like a flip book as we watch the Stitch queue get longer and longer. That cast member is holding a patented green extended queue flag.
Longer. Bonus points if you can see the Monsters Inc. extended queue flag in the distance.
We’re backed up all the way to the Tomorrowland bridge.
The Parade scene on Main Street right before it starts. This one would actually be less crowded than the 3pm version.
And we’re out of there. They’re making headway over at the Grand Floridian DVC construction site(s).
Mark your calendars for like, 2015 or something!
I’m going to pop into Hollywood Studios here in a few.
