    I believe it is because it is a trick-o-treat party night. Everyone that is not a ticket holder for that event will be shuffled out of the park around then. It is the same for every Friday in October.

    I also noticed a few other random days in October, such as the 25th, where the park closes at 6. Does anyone know the reason for that?

    Party nights are Tuesdays and Fridays, and Sunday the 31st in October. So shorter regular hours at Disneyland, extended hours for those nights at California Adventure.

    This topic almost deserves a sticky, throughout October.

    It's just the first of a Bazillion people who will be asking why Disneyland closes early on a Friday and Tuesday nights in October.

    Disney is going to have to fend off a lot of upset guests . . . . .

    I believe that someone stated that the 25th specifically was a private party.

    I for one am not happy about this event. I have a SoCal Pass and wanted to hit up a Friday night this month since they so deemed all Saturdays are now blocked out and Fridays are open till midnight. Well now I can't since the day is cut in hours. Might as well go on Sunday.

    When were Saturdays NOT blocked out for the SoCal Pass?

    Agreed. Saturdays have ALWAYS been blocked-out for both of the SoCal passes, which in-turn makes Saturdays the best day to visit the parks.

    Thank you! Finally, someone who realizes I was asking about a Monday, NOT a Tuesday or Friday.

    Well I am not sure about October but last year September wasn't always blocked for SoCal passes on Saturdays.
    They did change up things this year for APs. Nonetheless, I am still not happy about their plans for the Halloween events this year.
