    Awesome blog post – thank you!
    I’ll no doubt be checking it frequently over the next couple of weeks as I plan my visit in September.

    IF there was a decent wait time app in English that you could recommend, then I would definitely add it to the list.
    On my recent visit, I found the location of the single Park Information Boards at the “front” of each of the parks to be very inconvenient. On one day, the board at Disneyland didn’t even seen to open until at least an hour after the park opened.
    As a result, I wasted a lot of time wandering from ride to ride checking wait times, fast pass times and fast pass availability.
