    Red Face Kinda Lame Question....But What the Heck???

    How does Disneyland officially kick everyone out at closing? Keeping Main Street open for an hour after closing is a good idea to get $$$ and slowly siphone everyone out. But has anyone has an experience where you were there to the bitter end...where you were ASKED to leave?

    I would imagine they suit up in riot gear and start swinging--As soon as the Main Street Shops close, the magic stops.



    Any experiences?

    The stores actually shut and lock the doors, with the guests inside, as the guests leave, they do not allow anyone else inside. Thus officially flushing the guest out of the store. Main Street is blocked off (like when it is open in the morning prior to the rest of the park opening), with security there to move people towards the front gate (and the two open gates that I lovingly refer to as the "get the hell out gates"). =o)

    I believe they use bull horns, whips, tazers and mace. At least that was what was used on me. Oh wait, we're talking about DL. That was an entirely different closing I was thinking about.

    Let's not forget the hot oil they pour over the castle as guest try and make entry.

    There are actually some people who have to be the "last one" out of DL.

    My wife sees them on a nightly basis.

    There are no lame questions, just lame answers.

    How about these photos actually taken at Disneyland, instead:





    Yep. It can get really rough at closing time.

    Those cops were there for a "Main Street Police Parade".

    Didn't go over well and was replaced by MSEP.

    From what I always heard, Disney never forced people out of the stores. So if MS stores closed at 1:00am, people would occasionally stay until 1:30am and the latest was until 2:00am. I am not sure if they got forced out for staying until 2, but 1:30 happened very often in the Emporium.

    Re: Kinda Lame Question....But What the Heck???

    We enjoy just hanging out at closing time and watching people leave. Usually along the area next to the Matterhorn and Alice's ride.

    Very peaceful ending to what might have been a busy day.

    Eventually, a CM (sometimes security) will "inform" us that the Park is now closed. We say "thanks and good night" and then leave.

    Disneyland after dark is the BEST time to enjoy it!

    I've walked around after closing and I never had them say anything. Besides I don't think they would be rude about it anyways. Nice pictures of the riot police though.

    I think it's an interesting question.

    How DO they find the last hidden teenager? There aren't heat seeking cameras all over the park, right?

    i read that they just have dogs with security guys that walk around, and im sure they know where the most "popular" places are to hide.
