i am just curious if it had rained or had been really windy on the first day of the event what should Disney have done?
These events are planned months in advanced and eventhough Disney could be all powerful and mighty i really doubt they have the ability to control weather or know when it will be rainy or windy. we also all know that on the website and all printed promotional pieces there is a long sentence that warns people that things could change or be cancelled.
---by the way this is not directed at any post in particular its just that the whole weather and Disney dodged a bullet discussion has been brought up .---
also i understand the frustration of some guests not knowing that the park would close early but even before these event for halloween started both parks used to clse around the same times during the off-seasons if people would conside that then i see no reason why we should blame Disney for taking the oppurtunity to open the park when it would normally be closed for special ticketed events. I remember years back when things like these used to happen and guests had no option to enjoy the rest of the evening at a second gate.
Also i am curious as to what people think about the positive side of the event for locals. theoretically if you do not have an AP and want to spend a day at Disneyland you could buy a ticket for less than a normal day ticket and still enjoy the park for at least 5 hours and maybe even up to eight hours on certain days. The ticket even adds the benefit of special times with characters, short lines at rides, fireworks, calvacade and lots of candy and lets not forget no charge for parking which could be at least 14.00 dollars.
should Disney maybe use that angle to sell out the event?
