However, Universal was practically deserted! MK was apparently crazy though.

Also avoid Epcot on all F&W weekends, and particularly the F&W half marathon weekend.
Its been busy all week due to jersey week, all parks . The first week was lovely though.
The wash out from the first mvmcp wont help the next one as people were being offered alternative tickets to go to that one .

We didnt notice much difference during Jersey Week, except we heard some Noo Joisey accents!

When I stayed in Beach Club in September fireworks went off at midnight in Epcot several nights when I was trying to sleep. They were testing the new show. No fun.

We didnt find that the case. In fact MK was fairly quiet most days, MVMCP was much busier!

We were here 2 years ago at the same time.
The crowds this year are so much worse. Not just MK but all parks are busy. We were in AK on Saturday and you couldnt move. FOP was 210 minutes at 9 am and the first FOLK show queuing all the way toward the Up show.
We are hoping that the crowds may reduce from now on but Im not seeing many people checking out yet.
We have been doing alternative things like the GF gingerbread house, resort hopping and going on the skyliner.
