    Heh. In my department, when we close, we get off at 2:30AM. So a 1AM closing would mean getting off at 3:30AM.

    With all the night time entertainment being added, I wouldn't mind seeing a 1AM closing time again.

    In think it will make more sense to allow it to stay open later if the plan is really to have a parade back to the nighttime entertainment. That would hopefully help with speading out the time when the guests leave, as a certain number of people will leave right after each entertainment event. Eventually, the resort should offer enough nighttime shows to fill a several day trip and DCA needs to offer enough to keep people there to help with the nighttime crowding issues in DL. Hopefully WoC will have crowds flowing the other way in a few years.

You know…the Mickey in us.

    I always enjoyed those 1am closings back in the 70s and 80s. Disneyland after dark is especially wonderful, so having another hour of it sounds great! I remember how cool it was to be wandering around, soaking up the extra night-time magic, in those last special hours. While a lot of guests did leave, it seems to me that everything remained up and running -- so it was especially enjoyable to feel like you had the Park more to yourself. It's disappointing now how a lot of the "little" things shut down in the evenings. Bring back the night!

    I can tell you right now if the park were open till 1 there would be a serious casting issue.

    Say Space Mountain has a one hour line at 12:59 that means the last people to get on the ride would ride at 1:59 and by the time the CMs would finish shutting down, they'd be leaving around 2:30-3:00 AM!!! That puts them on the road with all the drunks coming home from partying.

    Midnight is late enough.

    Well guys, this rumor about Electrical Parade returning any time soon is false. We (show Support) have been told by upper management that it is staying thru next year, and any trace of it coming to Disneyland won't be til Wonderful World of Color premiers which would be in '10. POD is NOT leaving next year since WDW is still having issues on deciding where to house the parade, as none of their warehouses can fit POD. WoW is postponed as of now, so we just have to wait and see what happens within the next year. The main street rehab is indeed in effect starting January of '09, thru march"ish", and during that time POD will be refurbed, also as well as DEP which will be rehabbed completely from January to about June right before summer run kicks in. It's all wait and see what happens.

    Remember though, only when the park is closed can they do enhancements and touch ups to the daily damage that happen around the park on a daily basis. Cut the hours they have to fix it up, and you have a dingy looking park again like we had in the 90s.

    As a cast member who usually gets stuck with closing shifts, I say no.

    Please no.

    But I don't want to go among MAD people!

    The big thing driving keeping the Parks open later is attendance, and that is tied to the economy and fuel & transportation costs. If they can get the park full, and keep the people there buying things, then 1 AM could happen again, at least on Fridays and Saturdays.

    If they can get the people in there in enough volume to create some crowds, they could run a third Fantasmic! and a third MSEP and stay till 2 AM on Friday and Saturday, and push back to 1 AM on Thursdays and Sundays. And DCA could easily start pushing back to 11 or even Midnight on the weekends - it's all dictated by the projected gate.

    And it shouldn't make that big a difference for the Third Shift - they are still getting their game plans together at Midnight. The only difference would be they have the heavy equipment parked behind the gates, so they get brooms and pans and help out the Evening Custodial for a half-hour till their area of the park is clear of Guests.

    I remember a lot of 2 AM and 3 AM July 4s and NYE's when the Third Shift folks were out in their blues bussing tables and sweeping. And all the ones I asked said it was a nice change of pace.

    Same thing with the ride maintenance - they can always start working on the trains that were pulled offline during the day for problems, and by the time those are fixed and done the ride should be closed for the night.

    (The observant among us would notice the lights on in the maintenace bay, and the chirp of the crickets competing with the {BRRRRT!!} of impact wrenches and air tools.)

    Littlecricket: Don't worry about 1 AM closes - You're young and resilient. Sleep is over-rated... (And then you watch as they schedule you for a closing shift Thursday and an Opening shift Friday.)

    'Doubling back' at work and pulling the occasional all-nighter was easy when I was 18. It's gotten a lot harder south of 40.

    I say stay open until 1:00 on weekends like the good old days with some additional entertainment at Carnation Gardens and possibly somewhere in Frontierland. As for the CM's not wanting the late hours, your predecessors worked them......

    I don't follow the logic of saying that getting off work at 3am is unreasonable. Now, if you were scheduled to start work again at 9am, of course that's unacceptable. But presumably, if your shift ends at 3am, it would have started at, say, 7pm. 8 hours at work, 16 hours not at work. That's just like everybody else. With that 16 hours, you have time to commute, eat, sleep, or do whatever you wish! Of course, if Disney can't figure out how to schedule CMs such that they can't have this 16-hour separation between shifts, then I guess that's a whole other problem.

    all I see is more babies crying, more fussy kids who need to be in bed.
    Sorry but midnight is long.... long enough for anyone. I see kids crying by 10:00 and wonder why mom and dad are not putting them to bed.
