When we got to Islands of Adventure, the park felt a lot more crowded. Despite the huge crowds, the parks did not hit capacity.

If you sit on the wrong side of the ropes, you better just stay very still.

Food lines were crazy, which is typical for a Saturday, but it’s starting to get ridiculous. The wait time to buy food is longer than to get on the rides during busy days!

In Toon Lagoon, we found a temporary food location set up to help with hungry crowds. We definitely need it today!

The parks are always quiet in the morning, but in the afternoon, it was extremely busy. Lines for food were long everywhere. That’s our cue to get out of here!
