    Latest time you've entered the park for a one day visit?

    Before I became an AP holder, I had never previously entered the park any later than around 3:00 PM on a one day visit due to the cost. Now that I have an AP, we were in the area the other night and decided to stop in just after 8:00 PM and stayed until 11 or so. It wasn't too busy (Sunday), so ride times were short and we got to see the fireworks. It was fun -- we normally go in the AM but don't stay until night time. We'll probably do it again sometime.

    What's the latest time you've entered the park for just a one day visit?

    A number of years ago I entered after 11:00 pm and it closed at midnight. They probably let me in because I did have an AP, but I did see people at the ticket booths before I entered.

    I once went in at 6pm for an 8pm close, but it wasn't really intentional. I got stuck in massive traffic that day. I'd expected to arrive around 3.

    We went at 9:30 or 10 one night after driving down all day. We have APs and couldn't wait to get our vacation started.

    I know a lot of people who live nearby and have APs will just stop by on a Friday afternoon or on a Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon/night.

    Most of my visits begin after 4PM anyway. The latest we ever arrived was at 6PM and then left at 8:30.

    The last one day visit was in 1968.

    Oh man, let me think...

    I believe the last time I was in Disneyland for just one day was back in 2006. That was before I ever went to California Adventure, too.

    Ever since then I have done at least two days in the park at a time.
    I am so sick of Frozen I can't even describe the feeling.

    Too long ago. When we could actually afford APs, my family went for individual partial and full days quite a few times. Now, though, we can't really afford even daily passes, so if I get to go back to the DLR, at all, I'm sure it will be for just a day, and I will make sure to get there before it opens and be there as late as I can.

    As a cast member from the mid 80's through to 2000 we would sometimes get a group of CM friends change our costumes after our shift and walk right back into the Park from backstage even though this was against policy. We did it a couple of times right before a midnight close say 11:55, got in line for space mountain and rode it before going home. We just basically did it because we could and it was a perk of working at such a unique place.

    Before our children my wife and I would go to the Park and usually get there about 9:15 just before fireworks. We would enjoy fireworks, some coffee and maybe a delicious Disney treat. We normally viewed from the Big Thunder Trail which most closely simulated where we used to watch fireworks together while we were dating CMs. Our spot was backstage between Casa Mexicana, Plaza Gardens, Villiage Haus and the Custodial Office. There was typically a big crowd of CM from all over the Park back there to see Tinkerbell crash into a tower after her one-way flight. Very fun times.

    7:30pm for a dinner reservation at Wine Country Trattoria. Watched World of Color Winter Dreams, then went home.

    1300. We come up from San Diego and if I don't get at least 6 hours worth of "Disney" out of it, I feel it isn't worth the drive.

    Never had a one day visit since the 60's.
