    Question Wind at Disneyland

    We've had 80 mph winds over here in Glendora and judging by the fact that Pasadena is in a state of emergency due to wind, I'm going to assume that the rest of So Cal is also under siege by this rare windstorm.

    So with that in mind I'm curious to know if there are any wind problems with DLR. It's pretty much fate that the nighttime spectaculars were more than likely cancelled but I don't know for sure. Any info on the resort's condition?

    Re: Wind at Disneyland

    It is windy as far as any cancellations it is too early to tell. Disney will make that call as it gets closer to show times and they get word from the Anaheim, Fire Department and Police. Til then it is just a waiting game. Just hopefully no power outages.

    Re: Wind at Disneyland

    I live in Newport Beach and work in Irvine. Neither of these cities even have a breeze at the moment.

    Although te OC Register is stating winds could still be expected today in OC but they won't be as strong as they were in the San Gabriel Valley.

    ETA: And this isn't a rare windstorm. So Cal gets Santa Ana Winds all the time in the fall and early winter. And this would be a Santa Ana wind. It's just that it hasn't been this powerful for a good few years. But the winds never made it to the OC and right now there isn't even a breeze.

    I wouldn't count on riding Golden Zephyr if that is important to you.

    Ok. It's windy now in Irvine.

    Being in strong winds in Disneyland stinks.

    For those going today have fun!

    Fireworks was cancelled. F! was not scheduled on this early close night (9pm). Didn't notice about WoC but the parade roller snow girls weren't wearing their flakes.

    Re: Wind at Disneyland

    There was hardly any wind here in Anaheim all day. Only by evening the winds picked up a bit, but not that strong. But the fireworks were cancelled at Disneyland. The winds up in Glendale and Pasadena were from the North.. Anaheim usually gets the strong winds from the Northeast.. That little direction change makes a huge difference!

    Re: Wind at Disneyland

    The strongest winds, from what I understand, were coming in from the North in this latest round. It's from the EAST that we usually get nailed with Santa Anas at Disneyland. While areas around Pasadena were clocking gusts in the 80-90 MPH range, I'd say we didn't really get above 20 MPH over the past couple of days, although it did blow pretty good early yesterday for a brief time during the early morning hours. I think for the monster Santa Ana winds, it all has to do with where you are in relation to the canyons. Disneyland is a bit downstream from Weir canyon (that's the one the 91 freeway runs through, right?), so when we get the big winds from the East, Disneyland generally gets nailed harder. The foothills in North Orange County act as a bit of a shield from those big Northern winds.

    Re: Wind at Disneyland

    I'm at work at Disneyland right now. It's breezy, but not really "windy". We have had hardly any winds at all in central OC the past two days. They cancelled pyro last night though because the winds at the 300+ foot level above the park kicked up enough.

    Judging by the way the upper branches of the big tall trees along the back of the Rivers of America are now rustling and slightly moving, they will be cancelling pyro again tonight. The OC Register says to expect light winds through Saturday night, and that's all it takes to cancel pyro is light winds at the surface and moderate winds a few hundred feet up.

    The night of the huge wind storm up in LA, the leaves on the trees were barely moving at my girlfriends house in southern OC. And at my place in Fullerton, the roomies said we had no wind at all. But it was a raging windstorm up in LA and Pasadena. Weird stuff.

    I guess it also depends on which direction the wind is coming from for them to pull the plug. I was SHOCKED last Spring when they let the pryo go with a fairly strong breeze blowing, i.e. tops of trees all along Frontierland were moving quite a bit. It was one of those weird nights when they had no Fantasmic scheduled so I was able to shoot the fireworks from the top of the Mark Twain. A couple of the cast members told me I would most likely be out of luck as I set up my camera, but I set it up just in case. I was 99 percent sure they would pull the plug as I had been in the park plenty of times before when the wind was HALF as strong and they killed the pyro. I'd be interested in finding out which direction they give more latitude to, i.e. sparks and debris are not as much of a big deal if they come down on the East side of the park, etc. I mean, it was WINDY when those shells went up and they ran the full show. Hmmmm....
