on the $99 special. A poster on another site kind of summed it up nicely when he complained ,'Heh, I'm going to pay a total $897 for my $798 season pass plus one day. No way. I'm not crazy".Just got back from another marathon day at DLR on July 2nd with just my 5- and 7-year olds this time. Crowds levels were still quite low. Very easy to navigate the parks and never had to rub shoulders with anyone, even on Main Street when we left at 10 pm, which is usually when there's a mad rush to leave right after the fireworks show has ended.
Did DCA in the morning til just after noon. The longest we waited was 30 minutes for the new Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind ride and I only did it cuz it was new and the kids wanted to ride it. Otherwise, I'd never agree to wait 30 minutes for a spinner. Cute retheme BTW. Very bright, glossy colors. Lamplight Lounge was dead at noon. Even Incredicoaster was low (maybe 15 minutes).
Over at DL, other than the popular classics, most other rides had no more than 30 minutes waits. Of the few handfuls of guests I spoke to, all were out of state on vacation. None were locals. Small sample size, so take that FWIW.
Also, received this in my inbox a few days ago so there's that deal floating around. Saves $88 on a 2-day 1-Park ticket if you use it during peak season.

It doesn't look like their Bring a Friend for $99 park-hopper promo is having any immediate impacts. I don't think crowd levels will get back to normal until the 2nd half of August for Deluxe or until after Labor Day for So Cal Select.
Well, after a long day, I'm throwing in the towel. 99, y'all! Who's old enough to remember pager codes? Haha.
