  • Opening Disneyland super early so you can jog like a mall walker!

    I'm sure I'm not the first person to question if this could ever be done, but wouldn't that be awesome? Opening up Disneyland at say, 5:00am and if you wanted to come on down to take a morning run in the park before it opens, you could.

    I was there 8:30AM on Sunday and had to move out of the way for some jogging-strolling-mama. Wouldn't have been so bad, but there was plenty of room to go around us, and she wanted us to move.

    I think there are other things going on in DL at 5AM that might make walking or jogging hazardous.

    Lastly, I don't want DL to be considered an alternative to the mall. Too bad so many people have that choice nowadays already.

      There has to be some time when they can clean the park and hose down the pathways without guests in the way.

      DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

        yes and they do this throughout the night.. and it normally doesnt dry until just before opening (I know I used to work there) so it could be hazardous to jog at 5 am

          Seriously, If you park at DTD and walk to the front gate that is approximately the same distance as you would go if you were to walk from Main Street to IASW.

            I stay at Grand Calif, resort and Jog about 6:45 am. You can jog DTd up to the main gate but you can go inside disneyland.

            some time 7:00am you can sign up to jog inside DCA With A CM.
            I saw it on a day list thing that you can do at the Resort.

              I was just going to say that I stayed a couple of weeks ago at the GCH and they had a "brisk" walk inside DCA at 7. I watched from my balcony to see just exactly whom and how many do it. Sure enough at 7 there were 5 guests and one CM stretching by the bridge to GCH entrance to the Park! How cool is that.

                i remember getting to the Esplanade are around 7 when the park opened at 8 , and they pushed us back to the back check area so we couldn't mill around in that area , they wouldn't even let us over to DTD because nothing was open yet , maybe if we were dressed like joggers they would have let us through

                  How were you supposed to eat your beignets at the Jazz Kitchen? Or eat breakfast at Catal's, Rainforest Cafe or the Bakery???

                  I am wondering how DTD on the other side of the baricade is letting that go on!

                    would be a cool idea, but probably a logistical nightmare - insurance carriers and legal would probably freak out - plus they'd have to have security and staff to watch... might be cool if they'd let passholders in for like $5.00 a day or something - that way they could attempt to cover their costs... but why would someone go there if they had to pay and it was free to walk at the mall?

                    I'd stick to DTD and/or CM escorted at DCA because the walkways are more open and you could easily circle the pier... there is almost too much stuff to go around at DL

                      To do this do you have to pay / have a ticket or be staying in the hotel?

                        Seems as if it is Cast-Member-chaperoned, so it's probably for hotel guests only. Small controllable groups.

                          I never knew that--it's a great idea. Glad they are doing this!!

                            About jogging at DL at 5AM...not a good idea. Not only for the reasons stated above, but there are usually delivery trucks [arked along Main Street and in other areas...and at least if it's still like it was 20-plus years ago...the exhaust fumes and such can be telling at times...

                              I don't like the idea of making DLR more and more like your local park/hangout spot/mall...

                              No thanks.
