    Thumbs down Don't Bother with the park today.

    So i went to the park this morning when it opened. It was super busy. Half of tomorrow land is closed up with walls for the Nemo press event. There was a line already forming for nemo that was about 5 hours long. the ride didn't open to the public till noon. This in my opinion was extremely bad planning on Disney's part. This press event messed up the entire park. Every ride had huge lines. Star Tours had a 1/2 hour wait. I cant remember every when that ride had such a big line. Space Mt. when down around 9:30 this morning. The starcade was closed to the press event. Its a dang mad house. This is the worst planed press event ever from Disney. There were huge walls up from that ball fountain all around to lagoon side of the Matterhorn. They should have held the press event today and opened the ride tomorrow. I guess it will be quite a while till i ever get to ride nemo. Good luck to you all who went today. Lets see some pics of the madness if you have them.

    Did you think the park would be empty today?

    I didn't think it would be empty at all. I did think how ever that tomorrow land wouldn't be so messed up. Things today would have been fine if it wasn't for the press event and its oh so gigantic walls.

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing. As for the worst planned press Disney event....I don't think so. Were you there May 5 for the beginning of DL 50th anniversary? Or any of the POTC movie premieres?? Things like this are always total chaos. The subs have been down for 9 years....none of this is a surprise. Is it?

    As for Star Tours, I've seen the line that long and longer, and I have been known to actually wait 30 minutes for this attraction. Actually, a 30 minute wait doesn't sound that bad to me. But that's just my opinion.

    Wow- has it been that long?? You just totally depressed me. I was working the night they closed and got to ride them one last time at like 2 am. I can't believe it's been that long ago.

    Re: Don't Bother with the park today.

    I am not some ignoramis. I knew Nemo would be a huge *** line. I didn't expect the park to be so messy with this press event. ToT when it opened yes had the walls. But it was only around the gate area of the ride and didn't have such a impact on DCA as a whole that this Nemo press event had on Disneyland this morning. This is my point. Poor planing. The press event area was a ghost land. The only people I saw in there were cast members. There was no point on have as much of tomorrow land closed as they did.
