In my experience, the past two years the park was MOBBED! Last year was rough, but two years ago the park was reportedly only a cople thousand peopel under capacity with gate closure impending.
Last year they instituted handstamps for re-enty for all guests, Premium AP holders as well.
My family has really loved attending to show support for our gay friends, but after last years mob and our witnessing near violence (the park was closed early due to a private Miley Cyrus event leaving many out of townwers furious), I think this year we'll just stay home.
You should expect big crowds! I went on the Happiest Haunt tour last night and the park was very crowded. There is a big convention in town, plus the Gay Days celebrants, the Utah escapees, the first night of the Trick or Treat party, and the usual weekend crowds.
I went to the parks last night about 5pm. It was packed! I had to park at the Anaheim convention center. Which isn't bad because it is really close to the Timon tram.
I drove all the way up Harbor from home instead of taking the freeway, because of rush hour. And I figured I'd better obey the signs, which were telling people to park at the convention center, instead of going out of my way to get to the structure and then finding out it is closed.
I went to Disneyland today (I'm not gay though). I told my parents how the park was going to be packed due to Gay Day but they disagreed and said it wouldn't be too busy. Well, we got into Disneyland around 10:30 and it wasn't packed at all. We ate some lunch and when we were done with lunch there were HUGE mobs of people everywhere! It was craaaazy! They were all wearing red shirts too.....My mom finally accepted the fact that I was right when I said Gay Day was a huge event at Disneyland when she saw the huge mobs. Well, we will tyr to never go the first weekend of October again
...After a YEAR I finally was able to figure out my password again! I'm baaack! Woohoo!(: Disney is my life <3 Thank Walt for all he did! <3 Future Imagineer <3 Keep Disney the way Walt intended it!!
