I'll be there and I'm meeting up with a family of 5 as it is the only day they can go. I also gave them a reason to drive the 2 hours to DL, they haven't been in over 6 years!
I know it will be extremely busy but that just goes with the time of year.
That's awesome! Most of the ppl in the group have never been! I am so excited to be able to show them around. And they have 2 young girl's who will be thrilled to see the princesses! It may be crowded, but to get to experience it with the lil girls and then the "older kids" (mid 20's and their first time as well) will be worth going!
I haven't been during the 4th of July week in yr's, so thanks for all the replies! I know it is going to be crowded, since it is summer, but wasn't sure if it was going to be crazy like it was in Jan and Nov!
We went July 5th three years ago in '04. We took our relatives from Ireland who came out for our wedding. It was quite hot and busy but it was fun since they had never been before. They had problems with the heat since they weren't used io it. Some of them got headaches from the sun. They all needed water, sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen but didn't bring each of those four things. We got there early and had a plan. I want to say both (1) have a plan but also (2) be flexible! They wanted to leave early so we didn't stay for fireworks. What can we say other than it'll be busy! But if you're happy and easily adjust you'll be fine.
Also, if you are obsessive like me and want your friends to hit all of the important rides, you can use/buy/download Ridemax. I recommend it for taking tourists! We used it on Labor Day and were totally ahead of schedule and got on almost every ride. www.ridemax.com. When you print it out it looks intense, but usually I have heard and experienced that you end up with more free time than it actually says. Do a search for "ridemax" on here and you'll see other people's experience with it.
