  • OK, Just how packed will it be?

    Here we are, east coasters who are traveling to Southern CA to be at the spot on July 17, 2005. Reservations are made, so we are all set. Based on all other past anniversaries, just how packed will it be?

            Or it lands on a Sunday. What a coincidence: first day (black) Sunday July 17, 1955 and fifty years later Sunday July 17, 2005.

                Has the Mickey and Friends concrete monstrosity, er, parking facility ever completely filled up?

                I would think the crowds and traffic on that weekend could rival what happens at WDW on a Christmas or Easter morning when the lines stretch nearly all the way to the Cape.

                  On a typical summer weekend, the crowds are pressed so thight that should you die, it would take you a half-hour to fall over. On this day, expect it to take a full hour...... maybe 2.

                  I'd expect them to be turning people away at the gates within a couple hours after the park opens that morning. DCA should get a good boost in attendance just off DLs overflow on May 4th. May 5th and July 17th.

                  2.5 years ago, I went to DL on July 4th... Lines, lines everywhere. Only time I've ever seen the Jungle Cruise line go upstairs(over an hour for Jungle Cruise). Tried to leave as first Fantasmic! and fireworks ended.... What a mistake. Took me 2 hours to get to my car.

                  Expect the same this July 17th.

                      I'll agree with the "don't expect to ride anything" viewpoint

                      If you want rides you may consider DCA (I wonder how DCA will do with crowds will there actualy be enough overflow to make DCA seem pretty croweded too?)

                        I think you will be able to get one ride in, but "don't expect to be able to get to the bathrooms."

                          I know it's gonna be crazy packed! I plan on going both 5/5 and 7/17 so I'm curious to see which will be worse. I just plan on seeing everything new and of course make it on Space Mtn at least once. Other than that I just want to take it ALL in!!!!
                          My friends and I plan on showing up at the park by at least 5:30am to scope a good place in line. I want to be the first ones let in!!

                            who wants to bet that strollers/wheel chairs/electric wheel chairs will make it even more crowded?

                              I don't care how packed it will be. It's Disneyland's 50th B-day! I will be there in May and in July, having grand time with my friends.
