    CM at Parking Booth told me I was blocked??

    Yesterday I headed to park at Mickey & Friends at around 3:45pm, I went to the lane furthest to the left and the CM at the booth scanned my deluxe annual pass, handed me my parking ticket and told me that I was blocked from going into Disneyland or California Adventure. I assured him I was not and he insisted that all I would be able to do was go to downtown Disney. I ended up ignoring him and just went on as usual. I hope this isn't happening to often to unknowing guests... anyone else have this problem before??

    Hate to tell you but he was right. All AP's were blocked today except for the Premiums. If you actually got into the park, it was a glitch.

    Re: CM at Parking Booth told me I was blocked??

    i have not had this problem before.. although i have experienced some inconsistencies in how they handle APholders with Parking Benefits. Sometimes they would scan the card and give me a parking printout. At other times, they would simply look for the "P" on the card and match the pictureID with the person and give our card back with no printed pass allowing us through to park.

    As for the CM telling you that you were blocked out, that is definitely strange, and while this wont prove to any CM if you happen to experience it again in the future, it does help me when i'm in doubt: i put all the blockout dates in my mobile phone to give me ease of mind that when i do go, i'm sure i can.

    quite interesting.. everyone i know who has a Deluxe pass went (and got into the park) to celebrate Disneyland's 54th birthday.. though we did check in around noontime..

    if it was a glitch, possibly it was fixed/enforced after a certain time?

    possibly because of the lower attendance this year, they're more lenient?

    just finding it strange that if yesterday was indeed blocked out for deluxe holders, it was never previously stated so on the deluxe blockout calendar.

    Yesterday certainly wasn't listed as a blockout day. Maybe the CM was confused on his dates?

    Exactly what I said to him, but he assured me I was blacked out, I was just like whatever and went on my way.

    oops....my bad. I read the original post too fast. Thought you were talking about today.

    Yes, it would seem the CM was incorrect. You were in the clear for the 17th. I'm thinking that if you were truly blocked, the pass swipe at the gate would've caught it. Sorry, bout that.

    FAIL ON ME. i read your original post too fast and assumed you were talking about yesterday when you clearly said 'today.'

    so i apologize as well for further adding to the confusion.

    Are you on the payment plan?

    If you are not current on your payments, it will block your pass until the payments are made.

    I said...Dang this looks too good to be true...
