Magic Kingdom Crowd Updates
The crowds at the transportation center and tickets were intense! Once people started moving, it wasn’t too bad, but keep in mind that probably find crowds if you visit Disney World during the holidays.
Once inside the Magic Kingdom, there were some areas where the cast members had dropped directional arrows on the walkways to help with the flow of people and keep guests moving on separate lanes.
The crowds were very large in some areas and smaller in others. At some point there were some opportunities to take a break and get away from it all. It just depended on where you were at all times.
And that’s all the Magic Kingdom news for now! Keep reading DFB for more updates from Magic Kingdom and Disney World.
