    Re: Will they close Disneyland this weekend?

    My favorite place to nap is on the second level of Inoventions in a little dark corner next to the roller coaster computer

    "Capacity" refers to the highest number allowed in the park at any given time.
    "Attendance" is how many different people enter the gate. Attendance can exceed capacity as people leave and never come back, and new people show up for Fantasmic! and Fireworks.

    Capacity is determined relative to what number of people in the park is safe. When queues are not used to maximum efficiency, when attractions are permanently (or temporarily) closed, when ODV carts take up walkway space better used by roving guests, when attractions are not holding enough guests, when parked strollers take up walkway space, etc., these all serve to lower the capacity figure determined by the Fire Marshal.
    Yes, Pressler did all these things (well, not the stroller thing).
    If capacity were higher, then more guests could fit in the park at one time, so the gates wouldn't have to be closed as early as they otherwise might be.

    Of course, attendance is determined by prices, and some people pay too little to enter the park on these otherwise "tourist" days. But that's a hundred other threads.

    I think it'd be insane NOT to arrive when it opens. We always spend from opening to closing time in the park when we go.

    Dude, for naptime it's all about the animation building lobby. There's comfortable seating, and it's cool, dark, and mostly quiet. I took a nap at Innoventions at about 3pm on 7/17/05, because I hadn't gotten any sleep at all the night before when we were waiting at DCA.

    Re: Will they close Disneyland this weekend?

    If you are going at opening, and not leaving until closing, why are you worried about whether they will close the park? You will be inside, and won't even know it! Just don't plan to leave at 2 pm and go to DCA and you have no worries! Well, crowds yes......but you won't get locked out if you don't plan to leave

    1) You might luck out as the National Weather Service is posting a 70 percent chance of rain through Saturday AM. This might drive down some of the overall numbers.

    2) If the park DID hit capacity, which also has to do with the number of CM's working as I understand it, you would want to check at city hall or at the front gates before leaving to make sure you could get back in.

    3) Dittos on the animation lobby for the nap. Runners up would be Aladdin (Fun show, but I've konked out before ) and the 50 years film in the opera house. I LOVE that film, but I'm ashamed to admit that I've snoozed at least twice in there. It's usually after a long day with my kids that I end up taking an unintentional nap.

    Re: Will they close Disneyland this weekend?

    Look, unless you're going on a holiday weekend, it's not hitting capacity. I know the park has been pulling in higher numbers lately, but not THAT high. We call it "crowded" because it's fuller than we're accustomed to seeing this time of year. But it's no worse than, say, a summer weekday.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Easy fix: reopen Submarine Voyage, Skyway, PeopleMover, Rocket Jets and The Country Bear Jamboree.

    Re: Will they close Disneyland this weekend?

    I am thinking this place will be packed out, I guess if they close the gates I will spend the day about town. I hope I get in for some time but I am not going to worry much.

    Re: Will they close Disneyland this weekend?

    Thanks for the secret "nap" locations. Our plan was to leave the park so that our kids can take an afternoon nap, but if it's too busy and it looks like they'll close the gates, we'll try one of those locations.

    Thanks again! We're leaving in about 7 hours!

    Mike
