Hey guys, wondering if you can explain something to me. Disneyland is my childhood favorite, but I currently live in Florida and frequent WDW. A couple of times in the last three years, I visited southern California. I drove up to Disneyland from San Clemente each time. I used my iphone map ap for directions, followed them, found myself in a parking lot, parked there, and got a CM to tell me how to walk to the entrance area from this parking lot (not a big fan of trams). It took me no time at all to park and walk in.
Anyhoo, my brother, a San Clemente resident, just went to Disneyland for the first time in twenty years. He went on a Thursday in February. He followed the freeway signs and found himself in a giant line to enter a garage. He told me it took about an hour to get the car parked in the garage and get into the park due to the huge line infront of him.
I'm trying to figure out what happened here. I went twice on crowded weekend-days and just parked in an out-door lot and walked in, lickety split. My brother goes on the most un-crowded day possible and it takes him an hour to park.
The only thing I can think is that I followed gps directions and he followed freeway signs. I never even saw the garage, I wonder if my gps directions took me some secret way that the average "freeway sign follower" doesn't know about.
So, you southern CA locals, can anyone explain this to me? Thanks!
