    Well I am considering not spending much time at Disney on our next December/Januarytrip even though we have APs. Absolutely love the parades and shows but the lines are crazy. We come peak period in the summer too but it is nothing like this time of year. We should be used with this by now.....or we are getting old! Lines today are between one and two hours. Disney ap said 45 mins for PoC earlier and it was actually 80 mins according to the wait time board outside the attraction.
    Will be at Disney a lot during July/August but may stick to BG, SW and Universal for our Christmas trips.
    Our first cold day here today....we have jackets on. Back to 26 centigrade tomorrow.

    We are the opposite of rope droppers... we are park closers. We love the evening EMH at MK where the park stays open 2 or 3 AM. The earliest we get to the park is about 10AM but more often than not we arrive around 11am. Once we leave the park we almost never return and we dont park hop either. On those day/nights where we know that we are going to be in the MK until 3am we spend that morning at the pool and get some shopping in at DTD before going to the park.

    Yep. This is us, almost to a T. Occasionally (rarely) we'll get there at rope drop or earlier, but there's usually always an ADR involved. At first it was because the kids enjoyed sleeping in a bit, but now it's just because I enjoy my morning "alone time" down by the pool, or my and Jon's leisurely walks to the boardwalk for breakfast...

    We're hardly ever in the parks during daylight any more! We'll usually get there when it's dark and spend the evening at a park either until it closes or close to it.

    We do each park (MK at least twice) opening to close. On other days we will go to a park at opening and then leave at around 4/5pm to go elsewhere to eat. Sometimes we will park hop.
    We tend to leave the hotel by 7am and don't get back to the hotel till 9 or 10 most nights! Apparently I have a lot of stamina!

    Me too! Is it stamina or determination? I wonder if it's down to the fact you have a lot of stamina due to being on your feet all day at work?

    Quite possibly, I have never had a sitting down job, even when I didn't work when the kids were small I spent the whole time rushing from one club to another!
    Fitness/stamina is a funny thing though, I couldn't run to the end of my drive but I can walk for hours and hours!
