Helps better understand how many people can be in the parks in a day and how they can be crowded, but not nearly as crowded as they could be! Yeah, that's a lot of people!

This is why Omnimovers are called "people-eaters"

Omnimovers are insane in what they can handle. Omnimovers like Haunted Mansion can handle close to 3,000 an hour. Pirates is right along with mansion if it is running smoothly and using both sides. Largest capacity overall in the parks is Peoplemover. It truly moves people; over 4,500 an hour!

Haven’t been to the parks since 2018. I am missing out on a lot of the new rides and attractions. Can’t wait to ride this one one day though.

We went over 10 years between trips once, it was agony, but it was so fun when we finally got to go back. I'm a little more than 3 years out from my last trip and am itching to get back, but know it will likely be some time before I can. They really have made it a little on the expensive side to visit very often if you live very far away, or don't have a lot of extra "time for a trip to Disney cash" laying around :lol:

A little? I can't believe how crazy prices have gotten at the US parks. My next visit will likely be Tokyo once Fantasy Springs opens.

yeah, it's more than a little, I was being kind. Plus most people I know have a little more spending money than I do, so I don't always know if it's just me or not
I really hope to get back to Tokyo at some point ~ I loved the parks there!

It's not just you! It's to the point where I just won't go. And that's a shame because I still love WDW.

Phew, good to know. But also, very sad. I know many who feel that way. And friends that are thinking of a WDW trip but are also considering a European trip as that is about the same price!

I was very close to going to Japan this year but we are shifting it to either 2024 or 2025. Would've been a far better deal in the long run to fly there than go to Florida, sadly. But also, I get to see cool new stuff like Fantasy Springs and the B&TB ride. I'll get back to WDW some day.

By the time you're flying to FL from AZ, you're practically halfway to Japan anyhow, and with the cost of WDW these days...
I haven't looked, have the international parks seen such a dramatic rise in pricing as here in the states?

No, they are still pretty darn affordable, even the hotels.
