i think DC the parking lots open at 3pm right? If so, that is just like Gillette. I got in line at 4:00pm almost on the dot. Waited in line for an hour and 45 minutes (shorter than a disney ride) and get center/left. Mind you, i picked where i wanted to be to give you an idea. Yes, this was inner circle. Seems to be a trend with the later opening lots that people are getting right in without an issue. Also, when i got in, there were just as many people waiting outside the circle as in so keep in mind that some people, while early in line, dont want to be in the circle.
