Disneyland has obviously been very crowded lately. It is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary as everyone knows, and more people than usual are bound to show up. Fireworks are drawing people, especially to the hub. If you don't get there early, you miss some of the view. Some people don't mind the crowds. Some people won't go, when they know it will be very crowded. Some actually stayed away on the anniversary weekend for that exact reason.
So ponder this? If you could have Disneyland all to yourself, for one day, would you want to? Say a group of you and your friends were allowed the run of the park for an entire day. Would you enjoy the park the same, crowd free? Or would the experience, just not be the same?
