I can't imagine there being a PRIVATE event going on the night of May 4th. They're already shutting people out from Disneyland -- to put another event over in DCA (the only place left for regular guests to go) would be a HUGE mistake. I hope they're NOT planning a PRIVATE event... but a PUBLIC sort of party to appease all the guests that will inevitably be angered that Disneyland is closed for the day.
Bad idea in my opinion. Pressler might have been ignorant/greedy enough to try such a stunt, but I can't believe CM Matt would, I mean, what would be the point? A special event at DCA of all places to celebrate the start of DLs 50th the next day?
Only thing I can imagine is a corporate event of some sort that is coincidently on that day. Ususally they just close down Hollywood for that, and usually not until late afternoon...
They have schedule a full weekend set of Aladdin Shows that day (normallly dark on Tuesdays and Wednesdays), and the last showing is at 6:05 PM, so that more than likely means an 8 PM closing (of course, everything at Disney is subject to change).
The Block Party Bash is not scheduled until May 5th, and will be offered once daily at around 5 PM, seven days a week.
disneyland is actually closed that whole day on may 4th. we are actually having some private event going on. i think its mostly for media and other things like that. so most likely they will keep dca open til 8pm so that the guests have somewhere to go.

Wow post something and everyone thinks they are shuting down the park.
I said I didn't have any details about what or where. I have come across some more details. It wont be a "park" event and wont do anything to the normal public that day, it will be a private fun event put on by a large club (not giving to much away I hope). But it will be something fun to help kick off the 50th the night before. As soon as I hear anything more...or tomorrow (which ever may come first) I will let you all know.
Disneyland is closing on May 4th to "put on those finishing touches" for the 50th... but more important for a Press Event for the premieres of Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters and Parade of Dreams. We're scheduled to perform that day.
LOL...man, that was almost as bad as one of my jokes!!! Too funny!
Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
Ok sorry this took so long but here is the info from www.nffc.org it sounds like fun. The folks at NFFC have never let us down yet.
