    Very disappointed on this trip, Absolutely too crowded. They have made it so crowded that you cannot relax. Fast pass reservations are necessary for all the good rides. You find yourself racing to get to everything on time. The prices are so high now that your Disney resorts are at least 30 min away by bus. Then add about 40 min more of walking to get to your destination. Totally miserable with small children. We used to stay at Contemporary or Polonesion, but they are now priced for only the VERY wealthy.
    Sad to say, but this was probably my last trip. Am exhausted.
