  1. I think they are! Went to check out Food & Wine last night (a Friday night) and the booth lines were so surprisingly short that it was a point of conversation in a lot of them. I can’t speak for the ride lines (we were there for the festival) but it did seem less crowded. A nice reprieve for the sweltering month of August before holiday crowds :p
