    I guess they expect less crowds because next week they close at 10 PM some nights....which I'm only OK since I'm going and have work the next day and would not stay til Midnight anyway

    I've stayed until midnight once, heck, even fifteen minutes after for Main Street. Didn't really care for it...not saying it wasn't fun or anything. It's probably because I randomly got stick towards the end of the night...

    Re: Why did Disneyland close early tonight (August 17)

    Its been scheduled like this for awhile,

    I believed they switched it to 11pm after LA County and Orange County started school early this year, so way less annual passport holders coming in, typically AP holders come in latter in the day to avoid early morning crowds and stay till midnight. Plus Disney is saving allot on labor by not staying open an hour later, its honestly only worth it to them if the parks going to be relatively packed still. Sometimes when it gets to 11:45 (like a few days ago) there was more employees than people in the park.

    Even DCA switches back to 10am opening on some weekdays in September.

    main reason is due to alot of schools are back in session starting next week, also its because summer is coming to a close and their midnight hours are during summer and weekends

    i noticed that this week too. family is visiting and we have been enjoying the parks. I am OK with it closing an hour early BUT DCA closes at the same time!! So this creates a huge mess as both parks are being emptied and tram lines were impossible! Heck we walked to the parking structure with a huge endless line of people. felt like main street on the streets of Anaheim! xD

    We will see....but I think MANY AP's are in College or older (unless you've got some nice parents) so....we will see but I see the parks still being packed because of all the Ap's coming to Carsland for the first time...or second (having to wait 2 months)

    I don't think Disneyland would close at 11 P.M just for a special event. If they close early for a special event, they would close at least at 8 P.M.

    well its been a busy summer, even Mickey needs a vacation! so he and Minnie closed early so Mickey would take Minnie on a date around the park and enjoy a romantic night together

    thats why i think they closed early
