    Disneyland gates closed at 10:45am 4/14/10??!

    My co-worker was just trying to get through the gates at DL with his family and tells me they've closed the gates and aren't letting anyone into the Park. Any idea what's going on? His wife thinks she spotted some "police personnel" entering the Park, but wasn't sure.

    Anyone know what's going on? Doesn't sound like a "we're too full" closure.

    Thanks for any insight you guys might have!

    "Suspicious vehicle" - did Jay Rasulo or Ed Grier drive over there again?

    Thanks for the ABC/twitter update.

    It was a false alarm. It was a bomb scare, via twitter.

    Seems odd to close the DL gates for a "suspicious vehicle" on Harbor Blvd. Unless they were afraid the person they are looking for might try to duck into the Park? But, I have a feeling the person left the vehicle long before it was reported and way before authorities would have actually shown their response to the report.

    Hmm...well, hopefully it re-opens soon.

    Below was the area affected, the park did NOT close. The foot traffic to the Harbor entrance was re-routed and the Toy Story lot busses were not running at the time.

    I believe it was a suspicious device in or around Disneyland, not a suspicious vehicle on Harbor.

    WOW! Man, I always miss the good stuff...

    I wrote a news article on it when I heard what happened.

    I updated with some MiceChat comment quotes when I saw the thread, hope you don't mind! (If you would rather not be quoted, let me know and I'll remove it)
