    How much busier will it be for gay days?

    How much of a crowd does gay days draw in?

    In comparison to last weekend for example will this weekend be busier? How much busier?

    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 hope it won't be too crowded and it's on my birthday.

    Re: How much busier will it be for gay days?

    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.

    Yeah, mostly every Anaheim hotel is sold out due to a HUGE convention - Fresh Summit - October 2-5, 2009

    (Those guests might not be here for Disneyland, but on top of other events going on, the city/Disney is very busy!)

    Yah. I don't think too many of those people going to that convention are going to have the time nor the interest to go to Disneyland...

    Re: How much busier will it be for gay days?

    My GF and I are planning to visit tomorrow. Any reason to believe the crowd will be any lighter?

    Dumb question I know, but just trying to get an idea of what to expect, what time to leave the house, etc.

    I arrived today at 2:10 pm and the Mickey and Friends structure was already closed. I ended up in Buzz Lightyear and barely made it into the parks for a 3:30 set by one of my favorite bands.

    Tomorrow I'll get there early, like 9:00 am. I recommend that you do too if at all possible. Burning up your time trying to get into the parks is not my idea of fun.

    Re: How much busier will it be for gay days?

    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

    Re: How much busier will it be for gay days?

    My boyfriend and I ended up there on the gay days last year. It wasn't that busy I thought. We did go on like the last day so I don't know if that makes a difference.
