Our family came from New Jersey to see the park and to see the stars on the red carpet. We have never experienced such an event before, and we had a fantastic time!! And, yes, we waited 12 hours on Main Street, but it we enjoyed sharing the experience with other fans of the movie. I can certainly understand why holding the premiere at the park is a major problem. However, if it wore not for the Pirates premiere, I probably would have never visited Disneyland or Southern California for that matter. Wow, it was the trip of a lifetime! I just hope that if another premiere is held there that enough time is allowed for the stars of the actual movie (i.e., Johnny, Orlando, and Keira) to greet fans as well as to talk to the media.
