  • Trip Report DL closing early 02/16

    We're at the park and they just announced that they're closing early because of bad weather. It's absolutely clear right now. It rained hard earlier but everything stayed open through that.

    If I was a day ticket purchaser, I would be extremely angry right now.

    How weird. I was just chatting with my niece and she had to leave to go to work; I hope she's not driving over to the park for nothing.

      How were the crowds this weekend and today?

        i was there last Monday when it was raining, but then that wasn't raining as hard as it was today, and eventually it was done altogether, just like its stopped raining now. so yeah its odd they would close early.

          Closing at 9 instead of 11.

          It's clear now. Rained hard about 1-2.

            Crowds weren't all that bad on Sunday- sure, it was busy, but there were enough attractions open to eat up most of the crowds and keep foot traffic from becoming a nightmare.

            I think there's gotta be something else behind the early closure, because I'm @ South Coast Metro, and it's been peaceful weather all around down here. Then again, maybe Disney employs weather psychics. :P

              Did they give a specific time? I think the park was originally scheduled to close at 9:00. Are they closing at 8?

              And there's still a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight. I'm not sure how they reach that decision, but I'm thinking it's based on attendance numbers and the number of attractions that may already be closed due to the weather.

                I just called the live information line and they said the park is closing at 9pm.

                  Is lightning expected in Anaheim tonight? It's still raining in Northern CA.

                    I think Mac Daddy has a good point - a combination of low crowds and potential for more horrible weather this evening is a pretty good reason to close early. Especially with thunderstorms - why risk it?

                      We were at the park too, and it was so strange to hear that they'd be closing early due to the unfavorable forecast...and then the sun came out. Oh well.

                        That's southern california for ya! I remember one day when I was working at Knotts, I carried my umbrella in one morning on my way in to work. I must've looked stupid because it was sunny and clear. I didn't feel nor look stupid when I was leaving around 4 or 5pm and it was pouring, and I was the only person with an umbrella!!! :lol:

                          SoCal weather can get a little touchy; maybe Disney didn't want to risk any thunderstorms.

                              Think about the cost effect of it. If the park is not very busy and people will be leaving early anyway to get home, the park will lose a lot of money. This way they can send CM's home and not have a huge loss.
