  • [Question] A 2+ hour wait time in late September thru October 2012? (RSR "2nd Summer")

    From another thread, I thought this topic needed its' own thread so more ppl could see it and comment on it.
    If you have hard info or an educated guess/theory, plz feel free to respond! Many Thanks!

    SIDE NOTE for anyone planning a fall 2012 trip...
    ...just as an observation, I am guessing that CL will have its' "second summer" in the fall. All of us who waited out the summer and/or postponed our winter and spring trips (since CL and BVS were not complete), we will descend upon the resort.

    Anyone have a theory or an educated guess as to how this will play out or affect the resort? I still see many apps predicting fairly low numbers at the resort, esp DL. I have been tracking these numbers for about 2 months and there has been NO CHANGE. I have been looking since before the re-do was finished. CL, though, has numbers like the summer... it looks like, from a numbers' POV, that most everyone will be in CL/RSR. For example, Space on Sept 25 never gets over 30 min. But RSR achieves and stays at 120-150min within an hour of opening.

    I have never, in my thirty-something years, ever seen traffic like this revolving around one section of the park well after the summer season has ended. I understand that it will be a popular section of the DLR, but I cannot fathom why it would still be *that* long of a wait. Anyone have insight to this, or are these paid apps just trying to cover their collective butts and warn us that it will be busiest at CL, even if a 2-3.5 hr wait is over estimating RSR mid-week, mid-Oct?

    Indiana Jones was the same way when it opened. Crowds will start to die down in a year or so.

      Same story with Nemo. I remember that having a LOOOONNNGGGGG line well into it's first September/Fall season.
      Did you know that 87% of spoken statistics are made up on the spot?

        It's going to be WORSE than Summer because the SoCal Ap's will be back in the park. For those of you delaying your visit to the "less busy" fall ... don't bother. Go now.

          We rode Nemo a few months after it reopened and found that during the slowest times of Sept. and after lunch time, wait times were fairly short at around 45 minutes.
          THe same was true of Star Tours last Oct. You had to hit it early in the morning or at select times in the afternoon. You just have to watch the rides and wait for a lull.
          I'm hoping the same will be true for RSR.

            I would expect that the normal fall "low"season will not be so low this year. Just speaking for myself I am travelingwith a group of close to 300 people from Canada who will be going to the parkon September 26 to October 4 for some California fun.

            I have been to DL during this time of year before and it was quite nice...warmweather, short lines. However the more I research the more I am discoveringthat it's going to be quite busy, particularly in DCA. I hope Disney recognizes this and extends park hours during these weeks, but I am not hopeful on that.

              I went on Nemo the winter after it opened and there was about a 15 min wait (this was midweek in mid-Feb).

              My first ride on indy was in Jan (again midweek) of 1996, just 10 months after it opened. I waited about 30 min.

              I guess RSR is just a whole diff game here. On the dates I have booked, the resort is at a 2/10 overall (and this is what we wanted), but like I said above, RSR is PACKED according to those apps! Yikes! There's no turning back now for us (my party) we are booked. There is a possiblity that I will head there this winter like I usually do, but even then, the Apps say that RSR is still over two hrs wait midweek in late February 2013 with an overall park crowd estimate of 1/10.

              I was hoping the same thing, but like you, I will not hold my breath!

                I say it will be bad....until January but AP's will keep the lines high until after Christmas
                Happy Halloween!!!

                  I believe it will be worse, Seeing that all the people with Socal AP's are chomping at the bit to get their turn to enjoy Cars land and RSR. My friend and his gf already have plans to go back on the very first day their passes are no longer blocked. I figure it would be around Feb. or March before we see the RSR lines drop under 1 to 2 hours.

                    An off-topic thought, but I'm waiting for the holiday season to see how DCA will decorate CarsLand. I think it ought to be looking great.
                    The wait times will level off. I think though this Christmas, you'll see 4 hour wait times for RSR.
                    I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                      So would you say that a family of five planning our yearly trip December 4-7 would do better to go now? Or people who are focused mostly on Carsland would do better to go now? We do want to see Carsland and ride the three new rides if possible, but we're hoping for crowds to be manageable in general through Disneyland and DCA during those dates. What do you think?

                        You all should be fine that week. I'm surprised all those park apps are estimating 2-2.5 hour wait times for RSR in Fall. I'd be in hysterics if those apps turned out to be correct.

                          Your dates for your Disneyland trip are good. So keep them and enjoy.
