    Why is Disneyland closing at 6pm on Thursday, September 8th?

    We were thinking about a day trip that day and touring says its only a "1"... then I saw the early closure. Anyone know why??


    Thanks!

    It's after Labor Day. Summer vacation will be officially over.

    summer vacation may be over, but it wouldn't close at 6.

    Most likely a company event is taking place at the park.

    Isn't the standard closing time 8 pm though?
    "In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends." - Anton Ego

    I think Kritter may have hit the nail on the head.

    Summer will be over and thats around the time that all the special events start. If memory serves me right, Vons had a special event around the same time last year.

    Normal off season closing time is 8pm. I assumed it was a private event of some kind... just wondering if anyone knew what? I like it when they keep their events in DCA. lol

    yeah, but usually with special events regular park hours still apply, then the party starts after and goes til summer closing time

    Well, every other day is 8pm and I doubt they would switch their hours to close that early, they would lose the after work crowd. So.... what else could it be besides a special event?

    Is there any construction projects starting around then *cough* Fantasy Faire *cough* maybe??? Theoretically if they wanted to get a good start they would close early since DL always closes after DCA. this is pure speculation of course.

    It's a special event. Not sure what the event is for, but it's for a special event.

    Not all the time. There are times where the park will close early for these events.
