So at about 5:00 this evening I decided to go to DLR to meet up with a long time friend. When I got there, I wish I had my camera for this. Now before I begin, this is no way a bash of DLR as I love the place and consider it a kind of 'second home' for me. But here is a question that I have for you all.
When I got to the off ramp to the parking structure I noticed it had the red X's up. Ok, so let's just take Disneyland Drive past Ball Road to the regular entrance. When I got there, it was completely blocked. We had to take Disneyland Drive and follow the signs to the Harbor Boulevard entrance. When I got there, that too was closed. As I was turning around to park at Downtown Disney (hey I didn't travel for an hour in gridlock not to see a friend), I see a sign that usually shows directions for parking that ready "Disneyland is Full." Wow, I wondered, they must be really busy as I've never read that before, then again, I've never seen both parking lots closed. I get into Downtown Disney's parking lot and proceed to DTD. The place was completely packed. Now at this point I figured that I would not be able to meet my friend in the parks.
Now this is where my question is. I got passed the bag check and noticed that they were letting people in to the park. This is fine as they might have Park Hoppers and were just coming back from DCA. But why were they still selling tickets if they had a bunch of signs saying that Disneyland was full? I'm still trying to figure out how they say it's full when it really wasn't. Was it supposed to be to drive away potential guests? Can someone please explain this?
Oh and I did get to meet up with my friend but I just had dinner and then I left shortly after that.
