Got my special after 4pm passes, and want to AVOID CROWDS at DL.
So...in the next month or so, what's the best bet?

Saturday 4pm - midnight? (crowded, but open late).
OR
Sunday 4pm - 10pm (maybe not as crowded, but closes earlier)

Any insight?
Could also try to go a weekday, but DL closes so early (8pm).
Maybe it's worth it.

Sundays are less crowded, period. Unless you really want to see those fireworks, go on Sunday.

Is music a priority for you?
It is for me.

Saturday is the day the bands play:
1. CLUB BUZZ -- Rock & Top 40
2. PLAZA GARDENS -- Big Band Swing

The "team" of BILLY HILL AND THE HILLBILLIES changes between Sat. and Sun.
If you have a preferred "team," then pick the appropriate gig day.

Crowds are thinner Sunday.
Freeways are less crowded Sunday, except those freeways to/from Las Vegas. Orange County freeways should NOT see what I see on the I-10 on a Sunday afternoon, i.e., cars going from East to West (from out-of-town to in-town).

Got them thru that BlizzCom thing that everyone was discussing on this board.
$28 for after 4pm entry. Good deal, no?

i just went sat and sun and i thought saturday was the better day. After the fireworks and fantasmic, the crowd really cleared out. So you get almost 2 hrs of short lines on some rides because DL close at 12 on sats. On sunday i noticed shorter lines between the last hr 9-10, but it was only a hr...although most rides were 5-10 or walkons during last 2 hrs on both nights...Saturday is also better because of the fireworks...DCA was really really dead on sunday night between 6-8.. everything was a walk on...FP was not needed at all...

Or North to South from San Diego - ie. I-5. Always a pain Sunday nights going North.

Sundays can often be more crowded because the SoCal annual passholders are not blocked out and tend to go that day - but you never know.

See "great rates on tickets, can it be true?" thread on pg. 1 of DL discussion board. Good luck.
