    Monday, Oct 7th.... was there a special event?

    Taking Willow instead of the freeway turned out to be an obstacle course... I arrived about a half hour after I had planned...
    and was amazed at the crowd... lines for security were covered the courtyard area, then found lines into Disneyland near at the Calif Adv gates...
    Even a hour+ later, lines still nearly half way across the court

    Was there a special event?


    Has anyone timed how long it takes to enter when the line to enter stretches 3/4 of the way across the plaza area?
    I had only two hours and didn't wait... has anyone actually times the wait time?
    Hey, we need one of those markers that show what the wait time is ;-)

    There was an event after the park closed. I believe it was for bloggers? (My friend asked I didn't. It was sponsored by Disney Park Blogs). However, I did notice the park seemed busier than usual for a Monday. I also noticed lines at both Customer Relations to be massive - like nothing I've ever seen. Considering what happens today...that was my theory for the day. It could also be the run off due to the Halloween Party cutting hours on Tuesday...people want a full day in the park without paying twice.

    It was the Halloween Time Express Disney Park blog Meet Up! I wanted to go, but it filled up fast.

    Ah hah.... thank you....

    I'm slow... but it there a place where these things are discussed so I would know?
    I sometimes stop by for a few hours when picking up work supplies,
    it would make things more effective if I knew that a day would be a so busy...

    does anyone send out messages about planned events?

    I don't believe the blog event contributed to the crowds in the parks. I was there on Monday, and it was busy. For the most part, it appeared folks extended trips after Gay Days weekend. The onsite hotel rates are amazing, so who could blame them?
