Has anyone ever been I the parks on the 4th of July? I know a lot of passes have blackout days, but does it still have big crowds like other holidays? TIA!

HEAVY crowds... But last year, I stayed for about 5 hours, and saw 8 celebrities! Celebs kids have off, and celebs get a break on July 4th, so they have to take them that day... and they come in flocks! - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 4:50PM
I worked 4th of July back in 2008 and it was ridiculous. There are so many people and it's really hard to get around and actually do things. The fireworks are amazing, and they have a special WoC with fireworks too. The park usually reaches capacity pretty quick, so if you are going to go, I would suggest going very early and expecting tons of people to be there. - CMJenKWorth  125.0 #3126 4:55PM
it's pretty crowded.. - Stitch_Legacy  5138.2 #24 5:00PM
As a former CM, I agree that it is very crowded, but on the other hand, the fireworks etc. on the 4th are even more awesome than usual and the patriotic decorations are worth experiencing as well. - radiator  282.7 #1037 5:10PM
I thought it wasn't as crowded last year as I would have expected, but still crowded. It helps that most passes are blocked out. Expect crowds, long lines, and don't try to do all the E-tickets. Take some time to appreciate the less popular attractions- Tiki Room, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, etc. The fireworks were beautiful, I even cried a little, and I'm not a particularly patriotic person. - brit_brit  308.3 #869 5:16PM
Dang, but oh well. We chose to go on the 4th, so we will just enjoy the time. Hope its not packed every day of our 5 day stay. - adventuremickey  267.8 #1187 5:21PM
It's summer, so it will be busy. To make the most of your time, get there at opening and spend the first two hours getting on E ticket rides and collecting fast passes. After that, slow down and enjoy the rest of the day at at saner pace. - BRabbit  744.3 #261 5:26PM
Last year it was really quiet. But it varies every year - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 5:28PM
I've heard that. Last year wasnt too bad but i heard the year before was bananas. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #279 5:29PM
Yep- last year, we did a quick trip there to see the fireworks and were shocked at how light the crowds were, considering the holiday. Parked in M - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 5:32PM
Oops- parked in M - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 5:33PM
What the heck? What's eating my words?... - JinglePoe  289.9 #975 5:34PM
Last year TSMM Was 15 min!! All day!! I'm guessing the opposite this year! - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 5:35PM
With the new cars land happening...I wonder what side will be busier.... - adventuremickey  267.8 #1187 5:33PM
