Default Leap Year Crowds ...

I am surprised to realize this is another 3 day holiday with Valentines on a Friday and Presidents Day on Monday. So it will be crowded, right?
Then I glanced at the rest of the calendar for the remainder of this leap year phenomenon . All the major holidays will be a Friday Saturday
July 4 = Saturday
Halloween = Saturday
Xmas Day= Friday
And NYE Thursday Friday
It will be crowded like crowds we have never seen .
Happy Leap Year !
Will you be joining in with the crowds or staying far away from the crowds?

I missed this year's MO meet at Jelly Rolls, hazards of traveling with a 6 year old. But there ended up being an impromptu MO meet at TOWL....totally unexpected and quite enjoyable.

We met two really nice couples at TOWL on NYE when we were there. May have been MOs of course!

Plan to be back there on the 30th for sure. Actually who am I kidding? Weíll be at TOTWL nightly from the 27th onwards, except for the MO meet of course.

We will be slumming it over at Hillbilly central, but we will certainly be crashing ToWL one or two of the nights.......that's what Hillbillies do.

Good to know we are all brave and familiar enough with Crowds.
Just expecting this leap year phenomenon to be training for the Anniversary Year crowding to follow.
So increased crowds and price increases will not be unexpected and we will be leaping with joy.


I am considering this leap day as a Free Disney Bonus day . Yay another way to celebrate !
And Leap Day is also on Saturday.
