  • [Question] Half the park closing early Oct. 27th?

    A private party in conjunction with the Solar Power International convention will take over the eastern half of Disneyland from 7 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 27th. Details are at this site: Solar Power International 2009

    Seems kind of ironic to have a solar power convention party at the park, while I still don't see any photovoltaic panels on the rooftops of the Indiana Jones, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean or it's a small world show buildings, Tomorrowland buildings or any park administration buildings. You'd think that the conventioneers would choose to spend their money at a place that utilizes solar power. At any rate, guests of this party enjoy this:

    Join us for the biggest solar party of the year at DisneylandDisneylandAs guests of the party you will have exclusive access to these attractions:

    - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    - Frontier Shootin' Exposition

    - Jungle Cruise

    - Haunted Mansion
    - Pirates of the Caribbean
    - Splash Mountain

    Food and Beverage
    Concession stands, bars in the streets, buffet stations, restaurants - they are all open just for you and are included in the ticket price. Roam through the park with your friends and colleagues and enjoy all the of the great offerings. Grab a drink or a snack from any of the bountiful bars and buffets scattered throughout the park. Stop at the concession stands and get popcorn, sodas, frozen lemonades, roasted turkey legs, candy, sweet treats and so much more. Pop into any of the restaurants and order from the party menus available!


    Entertainment
    Entertainment abounds at Park. Catch Mickey and the gang for a photo op. Enjoy the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe in Frontierland. Enjoy the steel drum band in Adventureland or the New Orleans Jazz Band in New Orleans Square.

    Fantasmic! - Exclusively for the Solar Power International Party Guests @ 9:30 PM


    So does this mean the eastern half of the park stays open to regular guests, or will it become a ghost town after 6 pm?

    Why would someone pay $115 for this? I guess I'm confused.

          According to the Disneyland web site, the park is closing at 6:00 pm that day. Also, I guess the $115 isn't too bad if food and drink is included.

            It looks like they will kick EVERYONE out at 6pm and close the park early. The party goers will only have access to the Eastern half of the park.

              Well I am all for a green remodel of Tomorrowland. Hopefully this will lead the way.

                If its done like normal, the gate closes to new admissions at 6 pm and the west side of Disneyland will hard close at 6 pm as well. The east side and Main Street usually stay open until 7 pm, when they hard close as well.

                    That is a disincentive price. Admission is already included for "Full Conference Attendees."

                      Well, for that price I would eat nothing all day then be pigging out all night. I bet you could get up to $115 preeeetty quick. And that's even without the exclusive showing of Fantasmic. If you take the price of preferred seating for Fantasmic and add that to food costs and the benefit of not having to fight crowds during the month of October I think they are actually coming out ahead.

                            I don't see Fantasmic! on the list of attractions or entertainment.
                            I don't see the Mark Twain, either, though.

                              The page does mention Fantasmic:

                              Fantasmic! - Exclusively for the Solar Power International Party Guests @ 9:30 PM

                              So I guess none of the watercraft on the river will be operating.

                                Not if they are having Fantasmic, because they need a few hours of prep

                                  I wonder why they couldn't do it after Halloween? Instead they close the park early a few days prior and exclude the fireworks and Ghost Galaxy.

                                      Ah. It's a category unto itself!
