    Early Disneyland Closure Oct 9

    So, my family is going to the Halloween Party on Oct 8 (Tuesday). We're staying from Oct 8th-11th, and I just checked the Disneyland calendar, which says that Disneyland closes at 6 pm on the 9th (Wednesday). It's not another Halloween Party. Anyone know why they'd close early on Wednesday the 9th?

    I believe there is a wedding going on there that night so the park is being rented out.

    Thanks. That's interesting. I didn't know people really rented out the whole park for a wedding. Pretty impressive.

    Disneyland is hosting Little Monsters that night. It is the Trick or Treat event for the children of the DLR Cast.

    I know people are the party planning committee

    It's been in the news that Holly Madison is getting married at Disneyland. I have heard that the day of the wedding things are going to start shutting down at 6pm. I just put them both together. I don't remember what the date was for the wedding.

    I've heard that for the reception there will be a performance of Fantasmic! and that I believe it was somewhere around $10,000.

    I would have thought it would be more than $10,000.

    Depends on the services involved.

    This is VERY hazily remembered memory, but I recall around Liz Talor's party news stories quoting park sources at Disneyland rental starting at $25k a land and going up. This got you basic catering for your event, all or partial rides in the area depending on area etc. - extra of course cost extra. Presumably doing without rides, catering yourself etc. would also lower it. Less labor on Disney's part for one.

    I'm going off decade-plus memory here, but I'm relatively sure that was the range it was in then.
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    I believe that was just the price for Fantasmic! to run, not 100% sure I can ask again. A lot of numbers were thrown at me on prices. I just remember my jaw dropping on the price to do fireworks for a private event.

    Plus you would think Disney would want to charge for whatever revenue they lose by closing the park early.
