    DCA to open up at 2 AM on July 17th for folks to line up for DL

    From a revised MousePlanet update from today...

    http://www.mouseplanet.com/parkupdat.../dlr050711.htm


    If you do want to camp out here is the setup:

    DCA will open at 2:00 am 7/17 for the purpose of holding guests waiting to get into Disneyland. - valid 7/17 DL admission will be required to enter DCA and ticket booths will be open. When guests queue up they will get their commemorative ears and whatever other gifts will be given out on the 17th. The commemorative ears are not the regular ones currently sold in the park, and they can not be embroidered. Limited refreshments will be available for sale inside DCA - Smoozies, Award Wieners (limited menu), ODV. Restrooms will be open. NO entertainment. It's a line, not a party. When guests enter the park they will receive a wristband. If they leave for whatever reason, they will lose that wristband. If they return, they will have to rejoin the line wherever it currently is at that time.

    The Timon lot will be open, with tram service, for those who wish to camp out in DCA the morning of 7/17. The Mickey & Friends parking lot will open at 6:00 a.m.

    DCA will stop admitting people around 6 a.m. Guests who arrive after that will queue outside of the security checkpoints at either end of the Esplanade.

    Disneyland will open at 7:00 a.m. for an "unpublished opening." The DCA crowd will be escorted into Disneyland at that time. The security checkpints will re-open once the DCA crowd is inside Disneyland, bag check's will resume and people will be allowed to go right into Disneyland. It is estimated that it may take as long as an hour to get all of the DCA crowd into Disneyland, so the 8:00 announced opening time might be accurate for those who do not camp inside DCA.

    They probably will not do the softer, staggered closes we're familiar with as attendance increases. There is a maximum capacity number, which has not been disclosed, and the park will close when that number is reached. When the gates close, it will be a hard close - NOBODY gets, regardless of their story

    I'm getting a bit of conflicted info on it from guest relations. Similar - they all seem to say parking lots open about 1am, and ticket booths around 1:30... but as to which parking lot will be open, there seems to be some debate. In the last hour, I've heard each of them at least once.

    Oh, this is so confusing. I don't know what time to go.

    This is what I heard yesterday(Sun) at DL: That DCA and the Parking structure would be open at midnight. People could sleep in their cars(yeah, right!) and inside DCA. That they would close and lock people inside DCA at about 1:30am. Whatever! Who knows????

    I still wanna come at about 5:00am.

    Re: DCA to open up at 2 AM on July 17th for folks to line up for DL

    Got off the phone again and the CM told me the times keep changing and just to keep checking back ... last info she received was parking opens at 1am and it will be one of the outside lots ... not Mickey or timon ... I think she means the lots as you get off on Disney Way, right?... ticket booths at 1:30am ... DCA 3am ... but she stressed us to just keep calling back b/c times will most likely change again

    Re: DCA to open up at 2 AM on July 17th for folks to line up for DL

    My personal opinion: overkill. How many will really be at DCA at 1:30/3am. I know the hell I wont. I'll arrive at about 7:00, and if I can't buy a pass and then get in, then BFD, and I go somewhere else for the day. The 50th is a big deal to me, but not that big of a deal.

    FYI: Anyone know if they will be selling SoCal passes that day?

    So my confusion is the whole wristband part, IF you leave you get another and get in back of the line, so what if I sit in line all night and my wife comes over around 5:30, does she get a wristband and have to go to the back of the line while I am somwhere in front of her???

    people enter the park.. wait around.. sleep on benches... eat some food.. ext..

    then eventually release the hounds to DL....

    I really need to know when the thing is going to happen...
    (so i can see if i can be awake from then...)

    That is what it sounds like, no holding places in line for others....

    So is it that the park hasn't decided how it's going to happen, or that the CMs that we're talking to aren't fully informed? I'm starting to think that I should just call on Saturday and go with what they tell me then...
